At the law firm of Summers, Rufolo & Rodgers, our attorneys practice in federal courts in Tennessee and throughout the region. We are highly familiar with the rules and procedures that are unique to the federal criminal justice system.
Federal Criminal Defense Lawyers
A federal crime is a violation of a law passed by the federal government. Federal crimes typically involve crimes that intersect with a national concern, including crimes that cross state lines, or crimes involving the use of mail or telephone wires. For practical purposes, if federal authorities want to prosecute a crime, they can typically find a reason to make it a federal charge. Federal crime convictions can result in long mandatory minimum prison sentences, giving judges very little discretion in sentencing.
If you have been charged with a federal crime, it is important to consult with an attorney who is well versed in the federal criminal justice system. Our defense attorneys have practiced in federal trial and appellate courts throughout the region and have a proven record of success obtaining favorable results for our clients.
