Clarksville Federal Criminal Defense Lawyers

If you have recently been contacted or visited by either the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), or any other federal law enforcement agents, you could be facing federal criminal charges.

At Jeff Grimes & Associates, PLLC, we have over 40 years of combined experience helping clients in Montgomery County facing a wide array of federal charges. Our Clarksville federal criminal defense attorneys can investigate your case, collect evidence, review evidence gathered by federal agents, and develop a strong and tailored defense strategy to help you avoid serious criminal penalties or even get your case dismissed altogether.

If it’s early on during the investigation phase, we can do our best to ensure you are not charged. Do not hesitate to contact us today at (931) 398-5308 for a consultation.

The Difference Between Federal & State Crimes

Most crimes in Tennessee violate state law, which state lawmakers have enacted to address state-related concerns. On the other hand, federal crimes involve matters of federal or national interest, such as drug trafficking, weapons and explosives charges, mail and wire fraud, tax evasion, terrorism, and immigration crimes.

The federal court handles the following types of criminal cases:

  • Crimes committed on federal land – Common examples include robbery of a federal bank, destruction of property in a national forest, and homicide on a military base.

  • Crimes committed throughout multiple states – For instance, identity theft involving many victims in different states.

  • Crimes when an offender crosses state lines – For example, transporting drugs from one state to another.

  • Violations of immigration and customs law – Common examples include international sex trafficking or distributing child pornography.

Federal crimes are punishable by longer sentences compared to state crimes and can include time spent in federal prison. Some charges, such as drug crimes, are associated with mandatory minimum sentences.

Our Clarksville federal crime lawyers can thoroughly assess your case, figure out all your available legal options, and help you obtain the most favorable result in federal court. We understand the complexities of the criminal justice system and we will take aggressive legal action in your favor.
