If you are under investigation by federal agents or facing federal charges in West Virginia, there are a few things you need to know. First, in most cases, the penalties for federal crimes are severe. If you are charged with multiple counts of multiple criminal offenses, you could easily be facing decades in prison and hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines.
Second, federal prosecutors are relentless. If there is enough evidence to issue an indictment, the prosecutors assigned to your case will aggressively pursue a conviction and maximum penalties at trial.
Third, your choice of legal representation matters. While there is no shortage of defense lawyers serving clients in West Virginia, not all of them have the same level of experience and very few limit their practice to representing clients in federal matters.
