Federal Criminal Defense Representation

The Federal Practice Group represents 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 include corruption in federal service, drug trafficking, and possession, election and political activities crimes, firearms offenses, fraud, embezzlement, and money laundering, immigration offenses, mail and wire fraud, terrorism, and white collar crimes.

If you are called in to participate in a federal law enforcement investigation or informed that you are the target of such an investigation, we can help.

The Federal Criminal Justice Process

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 may ask for additional time to prepare. 

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’s crucial to have representation with federal criminal law experience to represent you.
