Federal Criminal Defense Attorneys
Experienced. Aggressive. Successful. Nationwide.
Joshua Sabert Lowther, Esquire and Murdoch Walker, II, Esquire are accomplished federal criminal defense attorneys. Their practice is limited, with very few exceptions, to the representation of persons and corporations that have been accused or convicted of committing federal crimes. Those “very few exceptions” generally consist of cases in which the United States of America, or the “Government,” defers a matter that originated as a federal investigation to state authorities for criminal prosecution. Mr. Lowther and Mr. Walker represent both individual and corporate clients during all stages of federal criminal prosecutions and post-conviction relief matters, including pre-indictment investigations, proffers of evidence, pre-trial litigation, jury and non-jury trials, sentencing hearings, direct and discretionary appeals, habeas corpus actions, sentence reductions and modifications, terminations and alleged violations of probation and supervised release, both civil and criminal asset forfeiture actions, and international extraditions. They take a very aggressive approach to defending clients, and have achieved excellent results for them, in federal trial and appellate courts throughout the nation.
Mr. Lowther and Mr. Walker have the ability to represent any client in any federal trial, appellate, administrative, or tribal court in the nation, and they are available to do so at anytime.
Federal criminal cases are vastly different from other types of criminal cases. The rules of procedure are unbending; the charges are usually complex; and the penalties are severe. Furthermore, the Government spares no expense or resource in its attempting to obtain convictions and seizing the valuable assets of individuals and corporations that are under investigation for, or have been charged with, the alleged commission of federal crimes. If you are a subject or the target of a federal investigation, your or your corporation’s assets have been seized, or you have been charged with a federal crime, you need serious and experienced legal representation. That is what Mr. Lowther and Mr. Walker provide: innovative and effective solutions to your federal criminal problems.
Mr. Lowther and Mr. Walker are the founding members of the federal criminal defense law firm known as the National Federal Defense Group, which maintains offices in the cities of Atlanta, Georgia and Savannah, Georgia. The close proximity of each of the firm’s locations to the Hartsfield-Jackson and Savannah/Hilton Head International Airports, respectively, provides Mr. Lowther and Mr. Walker easy access to daily scheduled flights, which enables them to represent clients anywhere in the nation on a moment’s notice. These proximities also make them and their firm easily accessible to those clients, regardless of whether they travel to those clients, or those clients choose to travel to them. Mr. Lowther and Mr. Walker understand the time-sensitive nature of federal criminal cases, and they are ready to take on the fight at any time.
Mr. Lowther and Mr. Walker welcome the opportunity to win your case.
