If You've Been Charged With A Federal Crime, You Need Help Now

The federal court system is a different beast. The laws, the procedures and the consequences of a conviction all vary significantly from the Massachusetts criminal justice system. Even experienced criminal defense lawyers can feel intimidated in federal court.

At J. W. Carney, Jr. and Associates, we are not intimidated by the federal court system. For more than 35 years, Jay Carney and his team of attorneys have been defending clients against federal criminal charges – with great success.

Our firm is headed by Jay Carney, one of the most respected criminal defense attorneys in the state. His trial work in state and federal court is prolific, and his experience includes everything from money laundering and criminal conspiracy to federal drug charges and murder.

A Federal Criminal Conviction Will Change The Direction Of Your Life

Being convicted of a crime in federal court is life-changing. Fines are high and prison sentences are long – with little chance of early release. Depending on the type of crime involved, you may be subject to mandatory lifelong registration requirements or GPS monitoring.

Our lawyers understand how the federal criminal justice system differs from Massachusetts, and know how to successfully navigate it. We develop strong, effective defenses that protect our clients against the harsh consequences of a federal criminal conviction.

As a criminal defense lawyer, it's easy to become jaded and stop believing people's stories. At J. W. Carney, Jr. and Associates, that is not how we work. We believe your story – no matter what. Then we fight to make that story heard.
