Aggressive Representation Against Criminal Charges

Last updated on May 17, 2024

As a former chief prosecutor in Guam, founding partner Joseph McDonald has significant insight into Guam’s justice system. He understands the seriousness of criminal charges and the often severe penalties that can result from a guilty verdict. As natives of Guam, we have deep roots in the community and fight aggressively for the rights of our clients.

We offer defense services for a range of criminal charges including:

  • Narcotics defense
  • White collar defense
  • Tax-related defense
  • Whistleblower complaints

Prosecutors aggressively seek severe sentences against people facing criminal charges. A competent and aggressive defense is critical to protecting your rights and minimizing penalties.

Defending Clients Accused Of White Collar Crimes

Because most white collar crimes are charged at the federal level, penalties are often severe. Federal prosecutors spend months or even years gathering evidence before they bring charges. A law firm with experienced attorneys who can fight for your rights is critical to minimizing penalties or possibly getting charges dismissed.

At McDonald Law Office, we defend clients against a variety of charges including:

  • Tax evasion
  • Embezzlement
  • Insider trading/securities fraud
  • Bribery
  • Money laundering
  • Insurance fraud

If you or your company has been charged with a white collar crime, the authorities already have significant evidence against you. Contact our law firm as soon as possible so we can start building your defense right away.

Severe Penalties For Methamphetamine Drug Charges

The methamphetamine problem in Guam has been ongoing for decades. Today, one of the most common felony charges in the Superior Court of Guam is meth-related possession of illegal drugs. Meth and crystal meth users make up nearly 30% of Guamanians seeking treatment for drug addiction. As the price of meth falls in Guam and markets across the globe, the problem is only going to get worse.

Part of the government’s strategy to deal with the methamphetamine problem is to prosecute drug crimes to the fullest extent of the law. The jury is out on whether this actually discourages people from using meth and other illicit drugs, but it creates a real crisis for people charged with possession. Even small amounts of meth can result in felony charges and mandatory sentences.

Without an experienced, aggressive defense attorney in your corner, you could be facing steep fines and years behind bars.
