A federal criminal lawyer defends clients against criminal charges brought by the United States government. While some criminal offenses are prosecuted at the state or local level, crimes that violate the U.S. criminal code are prosecuted in federal court. These crimes, including “white collar” crimes and drug crimes, are prosecuted with the backing of federal investigations conducted by agencies such as the FBI, the IRS, the DEA, and more. Federal offenses have a high rate of conviction because investigations are carried out by government agencies specifically dedicated to eradicating these crimes.
If you have been charged with a federal offense, or if you are under investigation to uncover your possible involvement in federal crime, your future is in jeopardy. Because your case will likely be prosecuted with the full force of the United States government, you owe it to yourself to find experienced counsel who knows how to combat the prosecution and challenge any evidence or investigative procedures. Find a defense attorney as committed to your protection as the United States Attorney’s Office is to your prosecution. Get immediate representation from an experienced federal criminal lawyer.

Conviction of federal offenses is often subject to mandatory minimum sentences in a federal prison. These sentences can be quite lengthy, and even upon release, those convicted of federal crimes face further restrictions of their liberties. Extended probation, being barred from certain activities and occupations, and other consequences of a federal criminal record can haunt those convicted for the remainder of their lives. With such serious, life-altering consequences in the balance, it is important for anyone accused of a federal crime to protect themselves by obtaining experienced and aggressive defense counsel.
Among the most frequently prosecuted federal offenses are those that have been given the informal nickname of “white collar crimes.” These are crimes that are related to business, commercial, and financial enterprises. Crimes such as fraud, embezzlement, and bribery are generally committed by professionals and executives, thus lending them the name “white collar crimes.” Despite the moniker, fraud, embezzlement, extortion, and other “white collar” offenses may be committed by anyone with access to the resources in question. These actions are considered a form of theft and can carry heavy personal, professional, and legal consequences.
