Federal Offenses Require An Attorney With Considerable Experience
Did you receive a summons to appear in federal district court on a criminal complaint or indictment? Or were you arrested as a result of a complaint or indictment? You are likely overwhelmed by this situation and may not know where to turn for help. To fight federal charges, you need an experienced federal criminal defense lawyer by your side.
I am attorney Casey Stamm, and I have the federal court experience you are seeking. During my 20-plus years of practice, many clients have come to me for assistance with federal criminal offenses.
The United States District Court for the Western District of Washington has jurisdiction over federal crimes in the Seattle area. I can represent you in a broad range of federal cases, including:
- Economic offenses such as fraud, theft, embezzlement, money laundering and tax offenses (such as securities fraud, 18 U.S.C. § 3301; bank fraud including mortgage fraud, 18 U.S.C. § 1344; insurance fraud, 18 U.S.C. § 1033; mail fraud, 18 U.S.C. § 1341; wire fraud, 18 U.S.C. § 1343; as well as Medicaid and Medicare fraud mail fraud, 18 U.S.C. §§ 1320 & 1347)
- Firearms offenses (possession of prohibited firearms, 18 U.S.C. § 922, 18 U.S.C. § 5845, and 18 U.S.C. 5861; possession of firearm by prohibited person (aka felon in possession), 18 U.S.C. § 922; firearm used in drug trafficking or in connection with a crime of violence, 18 U.S.C. § 924(c))
- Drug crimes (involving methamphetamine, cocaine, fentanyl, heroin, oxycodone, etc. in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 841, 18 U.S.C. § 842, 18 U.S.C. § 843, or 18 U.S.C. § 844)
- Child pornography (18 U.S.C. § 2251 or 18 U.S.C. § 2252)
- Immigration offenses (such as illegal entry or reentry, unlawfully remaining in the U.S. In violation of 8 U.S.C. §§ 1321-1328)
- Organized crime (racketeering (RICO) in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 1962, violent crime in aid of racketeering (VICAR) in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 1959)
When facing federal charges, the case involves numerous federal-specific rules of procedure, evidence and sentencing. This may include the application of mandatory minimum terms of imprisonment, the United States Sentencing Guidelines (USSG), substantial assistance and safety-valve provisions (18 U.S.C. 3553(e)-(f)) and statutory sentencing factors (18 U.S.C. § 3553). You cannot try to fight these matters on your own.
I have been successful in many types of federal criminal cases, including those mentioned above. You can come to me for representation at all stages, including trial, direct appeal and habeas corpus. Federal criminal cases generally are more serious and highly investigated than state court cases, so extensive federal court experience can be crucial.
