Aggressive Defense for Criminal Charges

About Federal Crimes

Defending Clients in Federal Cases and Investigations

The federal criminal defense firm of Taylor & Waldrop Attorneys defends federal cases of every type for clients throughout St. Augustine, Ponte Vedra, St. Johns, as well as beyond these areas. Our law firm has been handling cases in federal court since 1978. Our attorneys have been admitted to and tried federal cases throughout the southeastern region of the United States including the Northern and Middle Districts of Florida.

Our firm brings a depth and breadth of experience to any federal case or federal investigation in Florida and elsewhere. Through our team's experience with over 150 federal felony cases, we have had the opportunity to interact and learn from hundreds of prosecutors, defense attorneys, and judges. Nothing else can impart the kind of knowledge that this vast experience provides.

As a St. Augustine federal criminal defense law firm, we have handled a wide range of federal cases across north Florida, including mail fraud, wire fraud, drug conspiracy, white collar crimes, internet and child pornography, tax evasion, arson, violent crimes, including assault and sex crimes, health care fraud, identity theft, and more.

Federal Court Cases

In order to practice in federal court, a lawyer has to be ready to try cases. Plea bargaining is not often a viable option in federal court. Our attorneys have years of experience in a large number of federal court venues, which brings tangible benefits to our clients.

Our vast degree of knowledge and skills can benefit clients in federal cases, such as:

  • Discovery of evidence
  • Jury selection
  • U.S. federal sentencing guidelines and sentencing
  • Multiple defendant cases
  • Conspiracy cases

Federal criminal charges are a serious matter. A federal case requires experienced and skilled legal counsel.

Learn how our firm can help maximize your chances for a favorable case result by consulting with one of our attorneys about your case as soon as possible.

  • Thank you Brad for representing me and getting the job done!

    “I would like to thank Brad Waldrop for his representation in my Community Control violation case. I was facing 48 months in Florida State Prison in Flagler and Saint Johns County. From the moment I first called and Spoke to Mr. Waldrop to the end of my case he remained professional,knowledgeable and encouraging. Mr. Waldrop responded to all of my e-mails in a timely manner even when he was on vacation this man answered my questions via e-mail. The final outcome of my case ended up with a reinstatement of Community Control in both Flagler and Saint Johns County. I never thought that I would be able to avoid prison as I was charged with Aggravated Stalking which carries a mandatory prison sentence. Mr. Waldrop in my opinion is an excellent Attorney and I would recommend him to anyone seeking legal aid. Thank you Brad for representing me and getting the job done!!”
