Throughout her career, Ms. Lefeber has defended clients against serious drug trafficking charges, including conspiracy, possession with intent to deliver or distribute, and distribution.

Federal criminal defense attorney Hope Lefeber is extremely well-known and respected by judges and lawyers in the federal courts for her aggressive and effective representation of her clients and for obtaining the best results. She is tireless in her pursuit of her client’s constitutional rights and vigorously challenges any evidence obtained by the government. Ms. Lefeber is meticulous in her attention to every detail.
