Mr. Abrams brings a unique perspective to criminal defense practice, as a former federal officer who was considered by many judges as the ‘go-to’ for complex sentencing analyses.

I’ve worked with Joe for more than 20 years on a number of cases. He’s bright, hard-working and has a deep and detailed knowledge of the Federal Sentencing Guidelines.”

H. Dean Steward, Federal Criminal Defense Attorney, Former Directing Attorney of the Federal Public Defender’s Office, Central District of California

I contacted Mr. Abrams for a federal drug sales charge. I was facing 16 – 40 years in prison. I had already been through two attorneys and was ready to give up when I found Joe. Not only was he extremely affordable, he was more knowledgeable in the Federal system than anyone I had met. I was scared to death but Joe put me at ease. He handled it and got the job done, exceeding my expectations. He beat the odds and got me the absolute minimum sentence of 5 years even though I was categorized as a career offender. Throughout the process he was always available to take my calls and kept me updated, informed, and eased my mind throughout. I would recommend this man to anyone facing federal criminal charges.”
