Federal Charges

Anytime a criminal matter is prosecuted in U.S. federal court, the stakes are extremely high. For offenses ranging from drug sales and drug trafficking to fraud and other white collar crimes, federal sentencing guidelines may lead to penalties far worse than you expected. Federal prosecutors are highly skilled and they have extensive resources for investigation and case building.

Arrested Or Under Investigation For A Federal Offense?

If you have been arrested in connection with a federal crime - or even contacted by any federal agent or authority about a criminal investigation - there is no time to lose in getting qualified defense counsel. Pensacola-based lawyer James M. Burns defends people against an array of federal charges in northwest Florida and southwest Alabama, including:

  • All types of drug crime offenses, including possession, intent to deliver and drug trafficking charges arising from traffic stops on Interstate 10 and other area roads
  • Violent crimes and federal weapons offenses
  • White collar and Internet-related offenses such as fraud, embezzlement and identity theft
