Experienced Defense When Your Future Hangs In The Balance

Federal charges are among the most serious you can ever face. Your entire future hinges on the outcome of this case.

Federal prosecutors only take on big cases, and then they put the full resources of the United States government into getting a conviction. They don't hold back. If you are convicted, you will likely face a lengthy prison sentence.

Attorney Thad Doughty has more than 23 years of experience in the legal system, he is licensed in all federal courts and he has been a certified federal criminal defense attorney since 2001. At Doughty Law Firm, LLC, in North Charleston, South Carolina, you know you will get the aggressive and dedicated defense you deserve. We understand the stakes, and we will work tirelessly on your behalf.

What To Do When Federal Agents Contact You

If you are contacted by federal law enforcement professionals, you should not say anything. If you lie to a federal prosecutor, you could face additional criminal charges for providing a false statement. Many people are in federal prison not because they were found guilty of the crime they were interviewed about, but because they lied to a federal law enforcement agent.

You have a right to legal counsel. At no time in your life is this right more important.

Types Of Federal Cases

The majority of federal cases are high-level drug crimes. Many of them also involve conspiracy charges. This is a critical distinction. Under conspiracy charges, those with minor involvement can face the same consequences as the drug kingpins. You must know your defense options.

Other examples of federal crimes include:

  • Major white collar crimes, such as tax evasion
  • Medicare fraud
  • Credit card fraud
  • Many other types of financial fraud

These are complex cases. They involve a tremendous amount of paperwork and an in-depth understanding of a vast number of federal laws. You need an experienced lawyer on your side. We have been doing this for more than two decades, so we give you that experience.
