Our firm has handled many cases if federal court and we are not afraid to tread the legal minefield of government case law. The feds have unlimited resources to throw at a case. Our skillful lawyers will match it with brilliant strategy and aggressive tactics. We understand how serious and damaging these cases are because:

  • Punishment is always maximum
  • Plea negotiations are very difficult
  • There is no parole in these cases

Our federal defense attorney team has longtime experience going up against the government’s legal machine. We can spot the Achilles heel in any case and we go after it with precision, skill and tenacity.

L. Patrick Mulligan is board certified to practice criminal law by the National Board of Trial Advocacy (now known as the National Board of Legal Specialty Certification), and has been designated an Ohio Super Lawyer by Law & Politics magazine. A hand-picked team of stellar lawyers in Cincinnati and Dayton take on cases in the U.S. District Court including:

  • Homicide cases
  • Narcotics
  • Sexual crimes
  • Federal property crimes
  • Cybercrimes
  • Conspiracy
  • Assaults
  • Weapons charges
  • Theft / Receiving stolen property
  • Habeas corpus relief
  • Appeals


Our federal defense attorney team knows that by the time you are aware there is a case against you, the feds have probably been working on it for a long time. To gather evidence, they use high-tech surveillance tools like video and wire-tapping that can be difficult to challenge. It can take months or even years to gather evidence, depending on the nature of the case.

A federal defense attorney will work fast to get on equal footing with prosecutors. That is why it is critical to hire us right away – even if you just suspect you are being investigated. Our hard-charging legal team works toward the best possible outcome for our clients in all facets of trial and appellate law in southwestern Ohio and all areas of the United States.

A federal defense attorney handles cases that involve a government entity, cybercrime or crossing state lines. Prosecutors stop at nothing to try to prove their cases, and proceedings can go on for months and, in a few cases, years. Lawyers are seeing an increase in cases involving child pornography, white collar crime and narcotics cases. Since 9/11, the ever-present threat of terrorism has forced the government to ramp up its surveillance and undercover techniques – heavy legal artillery that has gained use in a wide variety of crimes. Match it with a seasoned and vigorous law team as soon as possible.

A federal defense lawyer will painstakingly examine the case against you and construct a solid defense that aims to mitigate the charges. We handle more than just headline-making cases; call us if you are accused of committing a minor crime involving government-owned land, such as a park, or property, such as a post office.

We will travel throughout the country for the right case, being licensed not only in the Southern District of Ohio, but also the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals and the United States Supreme Court.  Let us discuss your situation right away for free.
