Federal Crimes

Proven Defense In Federal Court

The stakes are higher in federal court. The potential penalties are greater and the federal government has substantial resources. Federal prosecutors do not file charges unless they believe they can get a conviction. To answer the charges, you need a skilled trial lawyer with experience in federal criminal defense.

Darryl Exum has represented hundreds of clients on federal felony charges. In fact, he is a board-certified criminal defense specialist with nearly 30 years of experience in criminal law. If anyone can spare you from a conviction or the worst consequences, he is the attorney you want fighting for you.

Wide Experience With Federal Charges

Exum Law Offices handles all federal crimes, including:

  • Drug charges (possession, intent to distribute and trafficking)
  • Fraud, embezzlement and white collar crimes
  • Parallel charges of wire fraud, mail fraud or money laundering
  • Bribery, extortion and public corruption
  • Firearm offenses (illegal possession of guns)
  • Robbery and burglary
  • Crimes of violence (murder, manslaughter and aggravated assault)
  • Child pornography and other sexual offenses
  • Crimes with immigration consequences

Prepared To Go All The Way

Darryl Exum has practiced extensively in the federal courts of Southern California, including motion hearings, trials, sentencing and appeals. He knows the rules of evidence and other ways in which federal court procedure differs from state court. He is familiar with the federal sentencing guidelines, including offenses that carry mandatory minimum prison terms upon conviction. We make every effort to avoid conviction by conducting a thorough investigation and aggressively challenging the evidence.
Federal prosecutors have less leeway (and less inclination) for plea bargains. When we cannot dismiss the case or reduce the charges, and you are facing serious prison time, Mr. Exum is prepared to present your case to a jury to argue for your freedom.
