Criminal Lawyers Fighting for You
State and federal law enforcement agencies have large, publicly funded budgets and the latest technology at their disposal to aid them in investigating allegations of criminal wrongdoing. The evidence law enforcement agencies obtain is turned over to local district attorneys or, in the case of violations of federal law, to federal prosecutors.
