We Know The Federal Court System
The federal court system differs drastically from the Alabama court system. Different laws, rules and procedures apply. Many experienced criminal defense attorneys do not have the knowledge necessary to defend clients against federal criminal charges.
At Dean & Barrett, our attorneys have been practicing in federal court for more than 40 years. We understand the nuances of the federal system and know how to build criminal defense strategies that hold up in federal court.
Certain criminal charges may be brought both by the state of Alabama and the federal government. At Dean & Barrett, we protect our clients’ rights in both state and federal courts. Common federal crimes include:
- Possession of banned weapons
- Selling firearms without a license
