Federal Charges

Are you being investigated or have already been charged with a federal crime?

If so, your future and freedom could be at stake. The government is prosecuting many cases in federal court today that were previously litigated as a state offense. Since federal courts operate under a different set of rules, sentencing procedures are often much harsher. That can mean you could be facing a longer period of incarceration with much stiffer fines. To ensure the best possible outcome, you will need an aggressive criminal defense lawyer with the skills to uncover facts that can help you avoid an arrest, negotiate a plea bargain or successfully navigate the federal criminal justice system.

At the Law Offices of Edwards & Jones, our lawyers understand the legal strategies needed for the defense of Federal charges involving:

  • Tax Evasion
  • Immigration Offenses
  • Trafficking or Smuggling
  • Counterfeiting
  • Healthcare Fraud
  • Bank, Wire or Mail Fraud
  • Conspiracy
  • Firearms & Weapons
  • Kidnapping
  • Money Laundering

Mr.Jones went beyond needed services as a lawyer to help me with my very in depth case. Very helpful throughout the whole 6-7 month process.

Thank you for all your hard work!

I hired Mr. Jones to represent my son. We had never had to hire a lawyer and I was anxious. Mr. Jones took the time to explain what was happening and it helped lessen my concerns. Once we hired him he started work immediately and was able to get my son's case thrown out. We are very satisfied with his services. Robert H.

I hired Christopher for situation I got myself in. He worked hard to get my case dropped. I definitely would recommend this attorney to anyone needing one. He puts his heart in his work. Roy M.
★★★★★
I had the pleasure of having Mr. Edwards represent me in 2006. While I was charged with a crime, Mr Edwards insisted sternly that he was very confident he could successfully defend the charges against me. This man exudes confidence. It is my opinion that he is clearly one of the best lawyers in the city of Gainesville. You can't go wrong with Mr. Edwards!!! Everette Sr.

We are from Lake City, Florida. As parents, we sought the help of Mr. Edwards in my daughter's behalf. As a young lady, she had acquired multiple felonies with the prospect of 10-15 years in prison facing her. Mr. Edwards heard our case, took it on with confidence, and got her sentence reduced to 10 years probation, and restitution. That was 8 years ago, and my daughter is married, has a son, and is doing great. She hasn't even had a traffic violation. Because Mr. Edwards believed in us and took a chance, we will be forever be in his debt. He is a great lawyer, with a very big heart. Colin
