Federal Criminal Law
Federal prosecutors are generally able to choose the cases they want to prosecute. No attorney wants to try a case they might lose, and federal prosecutors tend to pick the cases in which they believe they have the strongest evidence against you. To these cases the prosecutor devotes the full resources of the federal government. You need an attorney ready to devote his full resources to your defense.
I am criminal defense lawyer Keith Williams. Before I opened my criminal defense law practice in Greenville, North Carolina, I was a law clerk for a federal judge. This experience gave me insight into how cases are handled in federal court. I am the only lawyer in the Greenville area who is board-certified by the North Carolina Board of Legal Specialization in both state and federal criminal law.
I defend people who face all types of federal charges, including:
- White collar crimes that are charged at the federal level, such as wire fraud, bank fraud, money laundering, and tax crimes
- Sex crimes that are charged at the federal level, such as online enticement of a minor and possession, receipt, or distribution of child pornography
- Federal drug offenses, such as conspiracy to possess with the intent to distribute crack, powder, heroin, and other drugs
- Federal firearm charges, such as often possession of a firearm by a felon and possession of a firearm during and in relation to a drug crime
I understand what is at stake when you are facing federal criminal charges. There are few federal criminal indictments in which the accused does not face substantial jail time. Your defense attorney has to work a lot harder to defend you and for this reason many lawyers do not handle federal cases. I know what it takes to fight in federal court, and I will work hard to seek the best possible outcome of your case.
