Not every defense attorney is qualified to handle federal criminal cases; in fact, most criminal defense lawyers don’t handle cases in federal court.

Federal criminal cases are often considered to be more complex than state-level cases because they involve complicated laws, procedural rules, and sentencing guidelines that require expertise to navigate. Also, federal investigators take months, sometimes years, to build cases against defendants – all that time gathering evidence and bolstering their cases, which often means sifting through voluminous discovery to determine what is relevant.

Many criminal defense attorneys either don’t have the time or the patience to properly review evidence but Ann Fitz purposely limits her practice to federal cases, dedicating herself to a thorough investigation of each one of her cases.  Whether it’s strategic planning, trial work, plea negotiations, sentencing hearings or post-conviction representation, Ann has proven herself to be a successful federal litigator.
