Federal Crimes Defense Lawyers in the San Francisco Bay Area

There are serious consequences, including lengthy prison sentences for convictions of federal crimes. To schedule a free initial consultation to work with one of our highly experienced criminal attorneys, please contact Garcia, Schnayerson & Thompson.
