Criminal Defense: Federal Crimes

The attorneys of Missouri’s Meehan Law Firm represent individuals who are charged with violations of U.S. statutes and laws. These federal crimes can be as minor as a violation in a national park – such as a federal DWI on the Arch grounds – to more serious federal charges, including white-collar crime, drug trafficking or giving false information to the government on a federal assistance application for housing assistance or food stamps.

Federal crimes typically carry jail time, and punishment is determined by a complex sentencing table that only a lawyer can explain. The good news is that you can sometimes avoid jail if certain actions are taken in a prompt fashion. Federal cases are complex and require experienced and competent legal counsel that is used to dealing with federal prosecutors.
