Federal Criminal Defense Attorney

Charged with a Federal Crime in Los Angeles?

If you or someone you know is under investigation or facing charges involving any type of Federal crime, be sure you consult with an attorney who is experienced in dealing with the Federal criminal system.

The procedures, laws and penalties are vastly different in the Federal court than in state cases. Federal crimes are prosecuted by the United States Attorney’s Office in the United States District Court and are subject to Federal Law as opposed to state law. Your attorney must be experienced and skilled in this field of law to make the difference in the outcome of your case.

Federal prosecutors will often pursue maximum sentences and have extensive resources to investigate your case and present overwhelming evidence against you at trial. Some Federal agencies which may become involved in a Federal crime case include: the FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation), DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration), Secret Service, IRS (Internal Revenue Service) and SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission.

When facing charges involving a Federal crime, it is important to work with an attorney who is experienced and skilled in defending cases in Federal Court. Sentencing in Federal cases is based on the Federal Sentencing Guidelines. Although the Federal Sentencing Guidelines are now advisory, rather than mandatory, Federal Judges still have less discretion in determining an appropriate sentence because of these guidelines. In Federal court, there is much less ability to plea bargain. Your attorney must have the experience and knowledge to know how to present your case so that it may fall outside the Sentencing guidelines which will allow for a more favorable sentence.
