Federal Criminal Defense Attorneys in Jacksonville, FL

Experienced Duval County, Florida, criminal defense of federal crimes

When a federal agent comes knocking at your door, there is a good possibility that you have been targeted in a federal investigation. The FBI, the DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration), the Secret Service, and the IRS are among the federal agencies that investigate suspected federal criminals. At the first sign of investigation by these agencies, you immediately should seek legal representation by an experienced criminal defense attorney. The attorneys at Fallgatter Catlin & Varon, P.A. in Jacksonville remain at your side during all interviews and throughout the legal process to provide you with the full protection you deserve.

Experienced legal support to protect your rights

It is a mistake to trust government agents who tell you that you are serving your best interests by cooperating in an interview. Even savvy business executives and skilled professionals typically lack the legal skills and knowledge to deal effectively with an FBI or IRS agent. Keep in mind that the federal government virtually has unlimited resources at its disposal. By failing to call your lawyer for assistance, you are unwittingly entering a legal game with all the odds stacked against you.

At Fallgatter Catlin & Varon, P.A., our firm has extensive experience representing those accused of federal crimes. While serving as a federal prosecutor for 17 years, running the Jacksonville office as its Chief Assistant, supervising 20 attorneys and handling some of the most complex federal prosecutions, Senior Partner Curtis S. Fallgatter acquired valuable insight into federal case strategies and prosecutions — that he can now use to help you in your federal crime defense.
