The prospect of federal charges can be daunting. Your life as you know it could be facing significant upheaval, and your freedom may be in jeopardy. In these circumstances, the legal counsel that you seek matters, and having an attorney with a background in federal cases is crucial.
The attorneys at Cook & Tolley, LLP, can help you protect your rights. Our firm boasts more than 50 years of experience, and we routinely assist Athens individuals as they defend themselves against federal charges.
White Collar Crimes Can Be Harshly Prosecuted
Serious criminal offenses can unfold in seemingly harmless, professional settings. Federal charges stemming from white collar criminal acts are often treated seriously by prosecutors, necessitating a strong comprehensive defense for the accused. Our firm can help defend you against an array of federal charges, including:
- Racketeering and RICO charges
- Securities and investor fraud
- Wire fraud
- Money laundering
- Identity theft and forgery
If you are facing charges for a federal offense, it is critical that you turn to seasoned legal counsel who can advise you of your options. Civil suits can also arise from white collar cases, so an attorney who is knowledgeable in that area can also be helpful.
The Seriousness Of Federal Charges
While state charges can escalate to a federal level, there are significant distinctions between the two. Federal court is a different jurisdiction, and federal prosecutors often have more robust resources than their state counterparts. Because of what you may be going up against, having the services of an experienced criminal defense attorney can be a major asset to your case.
