Jacksonville Federal Criminal Defense Lawyers
Experience Counts in Federal Court
Federal Criminal Defense Lawyer in Jacksonville, Florida
There are substantial differences between state and federal court when you are charged with a crime. The rules of evidence and procedure are different. Federal law enforcement has greater resources, and federal prosecutors, judges and federal sentencing structures can be tougher. Many federal offenses carry mandatory minimum sentences. Certain offenses such as bank fraud mandate a term of incarceration if convicted.
Jacksonville attorney Mitch Stone practices regularly in federal court. And not merely to plead clients guilty — he has tried numerous complex federal criminal cases to verdict. He has had success in all types of federal criminal cases from the granting of motions for dismissal, securing the exclusion of evidence, and importantly jury acquittals at trial. Stone Lockett has the resources, experience and knowledge to achieve favorable results for our clients in federal cases. The firm also handles appeals of federal convictions or sentences.
If you have been contacted by federal law enforcement agents or were arrested on federal charges or are the subject of a federal grand jury investigation, Stone Lockett can help. We represent clients in northeast Florida and statewide. Contact us immediately.
