Federal Criminal Defense

Our office defends federal criminal cases in the Northern District of California. If you have been charged with a federal offense, or have been contacted by federal agents, you should consult with an attorney immediately.

Our office handles the defense of federal white-collar crimes, including criminal fraud and conspiracy matters. We also handle drug crimes, DUIs occurring on federal land or on federal property like in the Presidio of San Francisco, and other federal criminal law violations. We have defended clients facing prosecution for minor federal law violations, and clients accused of being part of more serious federal law violations. We have also assisted professionals facing licensing investigations that involve a federal agency.

Our clients in federal matters have included military veterans, medical doctors, employees or contractors working for large corporations, and regular citizens. In each case we handle we strive to obtain the best possible result for our client. Prior to opening his own law office, Mr. Sullivan worked in state court as a deputy public defender and also worked in a law firm in San Francisco that handled a large variety of federal criminal law matters. Mr. Sullivan gained experience at that firm in federal criminal law matters by working on drug conspiracy cases, cases involving violent crimes, and an international extradition matter involving a request by the Republic of Ireland to return an Irish citizen to Ireland.

In any case involving federal investigators or federal charges, you should contact an attorney immediately. Call our office today for a confidential consultation regarding your legal matter.

Client Reviews
Mr. Sullivan helped me out during a very difficult time for me personally, and I am very satisfied with the outcome. He, unlike other attorneys that I spoke to, wasn't dramatic or falsely enthusiastic, and that was reassuring. He was savvy and realistic, experienced, a listener, flexible and affordable. D. Client
Over the past two years I have experienced extreme legal difficulties. We were unable to get help from anywhere. Within 24 hours of contacting Matt, I felt that I had finally found someone who could assist me in working towards resolving our situation. I highly recommend Mr. Sullivan. B. Client
I hired Mr. Sullivan to represent me in my DUI trial. He fought hard for me in a very difficult case, which we won. I was very happy with his services. It was obvious he cared about me and my case. He is a real attorney who will stand up for you. M.R.
