Federal Crimes

Experienced Attorneys Defending Clients Accused of Federal Crimes

When you are charged with a federal crime, the consequences can be much more severe than a state crime.  Being convicted of a federal offense can lead to substantial fines, a lengthy prison term and a permanent criminal record.  In addition to the criminal penalties, a federal criminal conviction is likely to impact many other aspects of your life.  For instance, depending upon the crime, you could be precluded from obtaining certain professional licenses or even applying for a federal college loan. 

In the federal system, the federal sentencing guidelines set forth mandatory minimum penalties for judges to impose when an individual is convicted of a federal crime. Because the federal sentencing process is so complex, you need to make sure that you have an experienced New York City federal criminal defense attorney representing you at every stage of the process.  Federal prosecutors are extremely well-versed in the federal sentencing guidelines and they will attempt to use these guidelines to obtain the harshest punishment possible. A skilled federal defense attorney will fully protect your rights and take the necessary steps to help ensure that you receive the lowest possible sentence no matter how serious your charges may be.
