Federal Criminal Defense

“You have the right to remain silent.” And, until you’ve talked with an experienced federal criminal defense attorney such as the ones at Callison Tighe, you should do just that.

The second you begin answering an investigator’s questions, there’s a danger of falling into a “perjury trap” that can lead to serious criminal liability. Just ask Martha Stewart or Michael Cohen.

That’s why Callison Tighe’s experienced criminal defense lawyers begin representing clients long before any charges are filed, cautioning them to say nothing to investigators without their attorneys present.

With legal know-how honed over decades of experience in federal courts and with a determination to fight for the best possible outcome, Callison Tighe criminal defense attorneys are poised to represent clients from the first time they talk with investigators, through charges and plea negotiations, and on to trial, sentencing, and appeals if necessary.

They’ve represented clients in a wide range of federal criminal cases, including:

  • Drug charges
  • Gun offenses
  • Sophisticated mail fraud
  • Perjury
  • RICO (Racketeer Influence and Corrupt Organizations Act) cases
  • Securities fraud

Additionally, Callison Tighe criminal defense lawyers are thoroughly familiar with federal sentencing guidelines and their impact on federal sentences and plea agreements. The firm has litigated numerous contested sentencing issues, both at trial and on appeal.

If a federal investigator wants to talk to you, it’s time to be proactive. Call Callison Tighe and have one of our experienced federal criminal defense attorneys by your side from the start.
