What Is a Federal Crime?

A federal crime is a criminal offense that violates a federal law, rather than a state law. A crime can violate both state and federal laws, and as a result you could be facing simultaneous investigations at each level. Federal crimes, however, are investigated by federal agencies, such as the FBI or DEA. Additionally, in order to protect you in a federal case, your defense attorney must be licensed to practice in a federal court.

How Do I Know If I Am Under a Federal Investigation?

Like a state investigation, it is likely that you will be questioned or searched, or that others around you will be questioned concerning your case. The main difference is that a federal investigation is conducted by federal agents, instead of police. You may also receive a target letter from a U.S. attorney informing you that you are the subject of an investigation.

No matter what the reason, if you suspect that you are under investigation for a criminal offense, you should contact an experienced defense attorney right away. Our lawyers are always available to begin working with you or your loved one.

What Are the Penalties for a Federal Crime?

The penalties for federal crimes are similar to those for state offenses, and are governed by federal sentencing guidelines. Contact an attorney to find out what penalties you could face for the specific offense you have been accused of.

How Do I Defend Against Federal Criminal Charges?

If you want to protect your rights and fight for your freedom, the most important thing you need to do is get in touch with a defense lawyer right away. The defense strategy that works in your case will depend greatly on the specifics of your situation, so you should always consult an attorney before taking any action.
