Federal Criminal Law Attorneys

Skilled, Aggressive, Result-Driven Representation

At the Federal Practice Group, we represent individuals under investigation for or charged with federal crimes, which can often come with severe penalties including prison time. Federal law, at Title 18 of the U.S. Code, sets forth the federal crimes, which includes crimes such as:

  • Drug trafficking and possession
  • Firearms offenses
  • Money laundering
  • Mail and wire fraud
  • Fraud and other white-collar crimes
  • Terrorism
  • Immigration offenses
  • Corruption in federal service
  • Election and political activities crimes

Often the first step the federal government takes in the case of a suspected federal crime is an investigation by a federal law enforcement agency, such as the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), Air Force Office of Special Investigations (OSI), or even the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). If you are called in to participate in a federal law enforcement investigation, or informed that you are the target of such an investigation, you should contact the Federal Practice Group for a consultation with one of our experienced federal criminal attorneys.

Following the investigation, you may face an indictment by a grand jury, after which an arrest warrant would be issued. The U.S. Constitution guarantees you the right to due process, which includes several steps including possibly a detention hearing or preliminary hearing, after which you will be arraigned and then either reach a plea bargain or face a trial. Under the Federal Speedy Trial Act, you have the right to a trial within 70 days of your initial appearance, although you make ask for additional time to prepare.

We understand the nuances of federal criminal law and are well-versed in the legal strategies and tactics necessary to achieve a successful outcome in your case.

Convictions for federal crimes can result in severe penalties, including lengthy prison sentences, fines, and asset forfeiture. Since the federal criminal justice system operates differently from state criminal justice systems, it is crucial to have representation with federal criminal law experience to represent you.
