Federal Criminal Defense: The Right Lawyers for the Highest Stakes

There are few more frightening events than learning you're the target of a federal investigation, have been indicted for a crime, or your state-based criminal case just became a matter for a federal judge. Since federal cases are usually treated far more seriously than a similar charge in state court, it is imperative to hire an experienced federal criminal lawyer.

The federal government has the best-trained law enforcement officers, including the: FBI, IRS, DEA and more. This army of professional investigators and data analysts are supported by an incredibly well-trained and talented group of United States attorneys.

Federal Criminal Defense Attorney Case Results

To see just how successful our approach is, here are some representative case results:

U.S. v. Confidential

Charges: Federal drug trafficking charges

Resolution: After more than two years of negotiations, motion practice, court appearances, and arguments, an Assistant United States Attorney for a neighboring State moved to dismiss an indictment that called for many years of federal incarceration pursuant to the Federal Sentencing Guidelines. Among other amazing effects from this decision, the client got his passport back by next-day air, returned to his business without interruption, attends plays with his kids, moves on with life, and is the biggest fan North Star Criminal Defense has ever had. It doesn't matter where you face challenges, or for what--North Star has the connectivity and the creativeness and the sheer stamina to put your situation to rights. No fight is too big, or too small, no government is too powerful, no opponent too imposing.

U.S. v. Confidential

Charges: First Degree Burglary and Domestic Assault

Resolution: Stay of adjudication on misdemeanor counts only. Mr. Adkins was able to achieve this incredible resort with a short probationary period as well. And, if the client, as anticipated, successfully completes that period without violating his terms, the matter will be dismissed outright on motion of the prosecutor, and thereafter be eligible for potential expungement. This, notwithstanding the case starting out as a mandatory-minimum jail, and possible prison-commit matter; the judge did announce, as he placed the matter on hold for six to twenty-four months, that Mr. Adkins had "achieved a remarkable resolution" for his client. It's always nice to even impress the Judge.
