Aggressive Criminal Defense in Federal Cases
Many people think that federal crimes always involve dramatic acts like kidnapping, embezzlement, or counterfeiting. However, any arrest made on federal property – including arrests involving alleged DUI, drug possession, or domestic violence – can result in federal charges. Defendants in such cases may receive shockingly harsh sentences if convicted.

Helping Our Clients Uncover Procedural Errors and Civil Rights Violations in Federal Crimes Cases
In general, rates of federal court convictions are higher than of those in state courts. One reason for this is that federal prosecutors are backed by comprehensive and intensive investigations made by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), the Secret Service, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the Bureau of Alcohol, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF), and other federal agencies. However, this doesn’t mean that your situation is hopeless if you are facing federal charges. Sometimes there are procedural errors or breaches of civil rights committed by law enforcement officials in the course of an arrest or investigation, and if these are brought to light they can help get a defendant’s case dismissed. A good federal crimes attorney is in a position to help uncover these and other legal violations to your benefit.
Don’t Throw Your Future Away: Call a Federal Crimes Lawyer Immediately
Whether a federal crime is of the more conventional variety – that is, one involving DUI, drug possession, or other acts also illegal under the laws of the Commonwealth of Virginia – or one that is unique to federal law alone, such as counterfeiting, a conviction for a federal crime can have a long-lasting impact on a defendant’s life even after they have met all the terms of their sentence. A criminal record involving a federal conviction can make the defendant virtually unemployable for the rest of their life. In fact, simply being indicted for a federal crime can be enough to permanently derail a person’s career. B.R. Hicks, PC strives to challenge every piece of evidence put forth by federal prosecutors and hold them to their burden of proof in securing convictions. He works very hard for his clients in seeking to safeguard their rights at every phase of the judicial process. Contact the Fairfax County office of B.R.
