Federal Crimes

Knowledgeable Federal Crimes Defense Representation

The consequences of federal crimes charges can be tremendous. Federal prosecutors are known for vigorously pursuing even the most trivial cases. And sentencing in federal courts can be extremely severe. As federal courts try criminal cases differently than state courts, it is important to have an experienced criminal defense lawyer on your side who understands federal court procedures and who will aggressively fight for you.

I am attorney William V. Cristman, and I am prepared to provide you with the best available defense. While doing what is necessary to negotiate with federal prosecutors, I am always ready to try your case at trial. I understand the seriousness of your case, and I will use all my knowledge, experience and resources to reduce or eliminate consequences and achieve the best possible outcome for you.
