Federal cases are complex, requiring a wide range of legal knowledge and skills. If you have been accused of a federal crime, it is extremely important that you work with an Atlanta federal criminal attorney who has experience with the federal criminal justice system. Attorneys Nicholas Lotito and Seth Kirschenbaum are both former federal prosecutors, each with 30+ years of legal experience. We have a deep understanding of the tactics used by prosecutors both in and out of the courtroom; as federal criminal defense attorneys, and we use this knowledge to protect the rights of people throughout the Atlanta metro area.
