Charged With A Federal Crime? Protect Your Rights.

If you have been charged with a federal crime, or received information that notifies you that you are the target of a federal investigation, understand that you need to take immediate action to protect your rights. This is an extremely critical moment in your case, and the wrong actions at this time could result in a conviction that can carry substantial penalties that will impact the rest of your life.

Before you make any decisions about the future of your case, talk to the experienced criminal defense lawyers at Stewart, Schmidlin, Bullock & Gourley, PLLC. Our attorneys have represented many Eastern District of North Carolina residents charged with federal crimes, and we are confident that we will be able to help you obtain the results that allow you to protect what is most important to you.

Working Together With You To Build The Strongest Possible Defense

Our attorneys will meet directly with you to explain the charges to you and carefully walk you through all of the options that are available. We then help you decide the strategy that you wish to use in your case. We negotiate with the federal prosecutors in order to find a deal that is in your best interests, but we are also prepared for trial should a deal not be possible.

We have helped our North Carolina clients deal with a number of serious federal offenses, including:

  • Drug possession, manufacturing, sales and distribution
  • Conspiracy to distribute drugs or participate in other federal crimes
  • Weapons charges
  • Racketeering, extortion, fraud, embezzlement and other white collar crimes
  • Hate crimes, terrorist threats, bank robberies and other violent crimes
  • All other types of federal crimes

A conviction will result in prison time, fines, as well as enhanced penalties for any other subsequent criminal offenses. A conviction may also carry serious immigration consequences. If you plead guilty to these charges without offering a defense or negotiated plea, you could be making a serious mistake. Prosecutors may try to convince you that they have all the evidence they need to obtain a conviction, but understand that you do have options. We will help you present the strongest defense to any charges that you may be facing.
