Macon Federal Crime Lawyer

Find Dedicated & Tenacious Representation from Our Macon Team

The investigations in federal cases are generally larger and more complex than cases tried in state courts. Federal prosecutors and federal law enforcement officers have more resources and training to build a strong case. In the hands of an inexperienced attorney, the defendant is at greater risk of prosecution. Conviction in a federal case can have serious consequences. The Macon federal criminal defense lawyers at Cooper, Barton & Cooper have specialized knowledge to defend your rights in federal court.

Representation from Attorneys Experienced in Federal Court

Not all criminal defense attorneys are well-versed in the differences between the practice of law in state and federal courts and many are surprised at these differences. Therefore, it is important to have an attorney who is knowledgeable of the substantive law, procedures of the federal court, and federal sentencing guidelines.

Contact us for your free consultation.

There are many reasons a crime might be tried in a federal court, such as:

  • The location of the crime, such as crimes committed on federal property.
  • Crimes committed in more than one state, such as drug trafficking or kidnapping.
  • Issues affecting interstate or foreign commerce.
  • A crime against a federal official or agent.
  • Defrauding a federal program.
  • Other federal law issues.

Let Our Attorneys Defend You against Federal Charges

Federal sentencing guidelines are strict and the penalties are often more severe than cases tried in state courts. Therefore, it is important to hire an attorney with experience defending clients in federal cases. Our Macon federal criminal defense attorneys have defended clients in state and federal court.

    We have employed Devlin as our corporate counsel for several years. During that time, he has helped us to set up several subsidiaries of our primary corporation. He has also served as our litigation counsel, defending us in courts throughout Georgia. While aggressive in Court, Devlin never fails to maintain high professional standards and act as a Southern gentleman. He is quick to respond to threats to our business, and he never fails to quickly return our calls and emails, no matter the time or whatever else he may be immersed in at the time we reach out to him. We cannot more highly recommend Devlin.

    "Satisfied client"
    I hired Ken Barton to help me through a pretty significant legal dispute that I experienced. Throughout the litigation, Ken communicated well with me and was very responsive, and I could tell that he really cared about my case. We got a decent outcome from the case, and I was able to move on with my life. I hope that I won’t need his services in the future, but I would definitely hire him again.
