Federal criminal cases are different from state or district criminal cases. The rules of evidence are different, the sentencing guidelines are different and the approach of federal prosecutors is often different as well. Most importantly, the punishments can be much more severe.

If you are facing criminal charges in federal court, you need a skilled federal criminal attorney who can carefully advise you of your rights and provide the zealous defense you require. You can find the skilled and highly qualified representation you require at the Coughlin Law Group in Boston, Massachusetts.

Our firm defends clients against a wide range of federal charges, including:

  • Federal drug charges
  • White collar crimes (fraud, embezzlement, money laundering, others)
  • Criminal conspiracy
  • Weapons offenses
  • Child pornography defense (possession/distribution)
  • Internet/computer crimes
  • Parole violations

Federal prosecutors often try to push defendants into taking plea deals with lengthy prison sentences and steep fines, by portraying the case as open and shut.
