Our NYC federal criminal defense attorneys can fight for you if you have been charged with:

What Are Federal Charges?

A person commits a federal crime when they specifically violate federal law or commit a crime on federal land, such as a national park or military reservation. The prosecution of federal crimes is handled by government agencies, such as the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and U.S. attorneys, who report to the U.S. Attorney General. Federal charges tend to come with significantly harsher penalties than state equivalents.

Some criminal acts violate both state and federal law. In these instances, the applicable state government may defer to the federal government or vice versa. In some cases, both the state and federal governments may choose to prosecute. 

Facing Federal Charges? You Need a Strong Defense.

Federal prosecutors are some of the best in the nation. They statistically win a majority of their cases and are known for their relentless prosecutorial strategies. You deserve legal representatives who can capably advocate for you in and out of the courtroom. Our attorneys know how federal prosecutors think, and we can offer you the tenacious, results-oriented legal support you need to get through this difficult time.

The sooner you get in touch with our firm, the better. Do not wait to reach out if you learn you are being investigated by a federal agency. Exercise your right to remain silent: Avoid making any statements or answering any questions before you discuss your case with legal professionals.
