Federal criminal charges are charges handled in federal court, rather than Tennessee's state courts. These charges tend to be extremely serious and come with the potential of severe consequences. You want to choose a law firm that knows the rules of federal court because they are different from the rules of state court. You want an attorney who knows the steps to take to secure the best possible outcome — regardless of the federal charge you are facing.

State Crimes Can Go Federal
Crimes that are typically state crimes, such as DUI or drug possession, can become federal charges based on where the alleged criminal activity took place. Crimes committed in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, no matter how minor, are all going to result in federal charges. We defend people accused of drunk driving or marijuana possession, or any other crime, in the Smoky Mountains.
There are other locations that can cause a state crime to go federal. For example, a robbery committed in a drug store is a federal crime. Our goal is to keep crimes in state court, if at all possible, and aggressively defend against any charges that make it to federal court.
Federal Drug Crimes and Other Federal Crimes
While we handle federal crimes of all types, the majority are drug crimes. Federal cases involve allegations of drug trafficking, drug conspiracy and more.
One of the hallmarks of federal criminal cases is that the federal prosecutors will put a great deal of investigation and effort into building their cases. They have the best of the best working for them, which is another reason you need strong representation. We know how to take on federal prosecutors and fight for a positive outcome against all odds.
