Federal Crimes: How the Kerns Law Group Can Protect You
Facing any criminal charge is a terrifying experience. But if you’re facing a charge for a federal crime, it can be even more stressful. Federal crimes are incredibly serious and come with harsh penalties and lengthy prison sentences.
Even worse, few attorneys are legally authorized to defend clients in a federal court or jurisdiction. If you’ve been charged with a crime against federal authorities, you must contact an experienced attorney as soon as possible.
How can you find an attorney authorized to practice in federal court?
At the Kerns Law Group, our managing attorney Kurt Kerns is one of the few Kansas lawyers who is authorized to practice in a federal jurisdiction.
Kurt has successfully defended hundreds of clients from federal charges with his experience and dedication to protecting his client's constitutional rights. He has been practicing in federal court since 1992 and is well-versed at defending clients against the minefield of broad federal sentences guidelines. Furthermore, Mr. Kerns has obtained acquittals for clients in federal court twelve times in a row; an unprecedented level of victory.
Why do you need an attorney with extensive experience in federal court?
Federal laws and sentencing guidelines are highly nuanced, and utterly confusing for the inexperienced or uninitiated attorney. If you’re facing a federal charge, you need an attorney with years of experience in the federal court system. Without it, your freedom, your money, and your reputation are at stake, not the attorneys.
Federal prosecutors will enhance your charges with loosely related, tacked-on violations that can add years to your original sentence. And, the federal prison system does not offer defendants the possibility of parole.
If you hire an inexperienced attorney who doesn’t understand enhancements and other tricks of the federal prosecutorial trade, you run the risk of acting under faulty legal advice, landing you in a federal prison. Without the possibility of parole, you can be in prison for many years. By hiring a lawyer who is inexperienced in federal court, you will be operating at a significant disadvantage.
You can avoid these risks by hiring a qualified attorney to protect you from federal charges as soon as you receive them. If you’re facing a lengthy prison sentence because of a federal crime, speak to us today. Our attorneys at the Kerns Law Group are highly experienced with the operations of federal court systems and sentencing guidelines.
