Accomplished Weatherford Advocate Litigates Federal Criminal Matters
Texas lawyer protects clients’ rights in weapon, drug and white collar cases
Criminal matters that are tried in federal court require an attorney who understands the special rules and procedures that apply. At the Kernan Law Firm, P.C. in Weatherford, I have more than 20 years of experience litigating matters involving complex crimes that fall under federal jurisdiction. I understand how to safeguard the rights of my clients at trial and during plea agreement negotiations with U.S. Attorneys. Whether your specific case involves an alleged white collar crime, a weapons charge or any other type of conduct prohibited by federal law, my firm will guide you through the process and press for the best possible result.
Skillful criminal defense firm challenges charges brought by U.S. Attorneys
It can be difficult to understand what particular offenses are classified as federal crimes and how the U.S. court system differs from what defendants experience in Texas state courts. My firm provides experienced criminal defense representation to clients facing felony and misdemeanor charges, including:
- White collar cases — My firm has the background and experience to construct a comprehensive defense to prosecutions for mail and wire fraud, embezzlement, securities law violations, computer crimes and other white collar offenses.
- Drug crimes — A seemingly innocent conversation or transaction can lead to federal jurisdiction and much stiffer punishment for a drug-related accusation. If you are facing this type of charge, my firm will work diligently to confront unreliable evidence and witnesses.
- Weapons charges — Despite our Second Amendment rights, violations of laws relating to the use, sale and transport of firearms can have severe consequences. I will protect you from overreaching authorities and aggressively oppose unwarranted allegations.
- Sexual misconduct and trafficking — Traditionally, transportation of women or girls across state lines for sexual purposes was a violation of the federal Mann Act. Technological advances have led to sexual trafficking prosecutions arising from computers. If you have been accused of a crime relating to improper online communications or human trafficking, my firm will find the truth.
Whether you are being prosecuted in state or federal court, I can give you a detailed overview of your legal options during a free initial consultation.
