At the Law Office of Matthew S. Kolodziejski, PLLC we understand the anxiety of a federal criminal charge or investigation. As troubling as state level criminal charges can be, federal prosecutions tend to be even more distressing. If you have been charged with a federal crime, or have received a target letter, you are facing off against the vast resources of the U.S. government. Needless to say, it is not always a fair fight. The consequences of a federal conviction are often more serious, with mandatory minimum sentences or sentencing guidelines than are far higher than in state court. However, being charged with a federal crime is still often a very manageable situation with an experienced attorney at your side. We have successfully represented numerous federal clients, many times avoiding charges all together or winning a dismissal. If you are facing a federal charge or investigation, you need a lawyer with significant knowledge and experience in federal courts. Many defense attorneys in Michigan will not take federal cases because they require extensive preparation, investigation, and knowledge of federal court procedures. We have vigorously and successfully defended many clients facing federal drug offenses, theft crimes, weapons charges, and more.
