Federal Criminal Defense Attorney
Trusted Defense Against a Range of Federal Charges
When the federal government files a criminal charge against you, the implications are serious. You need immediate legal assistance you can trust from a professional and experienced criminal defense attorney.
I am attorney Chris Goldsmith. From my San Francisco law office, I defend clients in California and nationwide against a full range of federal charges. With more than 25 years of legal experience and the ability to represent clients all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, I am prepared to offer you the skilled defense you need to protect your rights and freedom against the federal government.
Defense Against Drug Charges
With the federal government seeking to deter the distribution of illegal drugs, the penalties for a drug charge conviction are especially severe. I have experience defending clients against a range of federal drug charges, including:
- Drug conspiracy
- Possession with the intent to distribute
- Money laundering
If you or a family member has been arrested for a drug crime, it is important to contact me immediately. Here at All Criminal Defense we can find important information that may aid you now or in the feature. I can work to secure my client’s release from custody while cases are still pending in the federal system, depending on his or her prior criminal record and the nature of the charges.
Defense Against Fraud Charges
Cases concerning charges of fraud can be extremely complex, requiring diligent attention to detail on the part of your attorney. I understand what to look for to offer my clients a complete defense against any federal fraud charges, including:
- Bank fraud
- Wire fraud
- Mail fraud
- Health care fraud
- Investment fraud
As your attorney, the first thing I will address will be pretrial release and detention issues. If a grand jury has issued an indictment, then probable cause has already been established, but you are still entitled to a hearing to address whether or not you should be granted pretrial release.
I defend individuals who have been charged with illegal re-entry after being deported and attempting to re-enter the United States. With an understanding of what the federal government is looking for in these cases, I am able to build an effective defense against these federal charges.
