Areas of Practice The criminal justice system is complex. Crimes may be against persons (e.g.: assault) or against property (e.g. theft). Crimes are graded as felonies or misdemeanors and some carry mandatory jail sentences.

Not all criminal defense lawyers defend cases in federal court. If you are charged federally, contact us today. Mr. Swetz has substantial experience in defending federal criminal cases and is particularly familiar with federal guideline sentencing.

The right lawyer can make a difference. Do not gamble your future on inexperience.

Whether your state criminal case begins with a call from a police officer, a subpoena before an investigating grand jury, a court summons or arrest, you need an experienced criminal defense lawyer. Your future depends on it. Call the Swetz-Jordan team today!
