Federal Crimes

Smart, aggressive, and experienced trial lawyers.


Federal crimes are those committed in which U.S. laws, otherwise known as federal laws, apply in the case rather than state laws. Many federal cases are also white collar crimes and generally refers to crimes involving business professionals or other individuals who use deception for financial gain. In most cases, white collar crime charges are handled in federal courts rather than state courts. Individuals arrested or under investigation for white collar crime offenses will likely face an aggressive, resourceful prosecution and harsh sentences if convicted.
