Federal Offenses

Orange County Federal Defense Lawyer

PREMIERE CRIMINAL Defense Representation

Simply put, a federal crime is a criminal offense that is tried on the federal level rather than the state level. This typically refers to crimes that are larger on scale and often stretch across geographical lines. For example, it could be a weapons offense that was outlawed by the National Firearms Act or it could be the evasion of federal taxes. Regardless, it is important to realize that these are serious criminal offense that will likely have daunting penalties and will often be tried by the most experienced of prosecutors.

Brief Overview of Federal Crimes

One of the most daunting aspects of dealing with a criminal offense that is tried on the federal level is that it will likely be investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). This means that by the time that you are made aware of the investigation or are formally charged, it is likely that they could already have considerable evidence on their side and could be well on their way to building a strong case. The FBI currently has jurisdiction over 200 different categories involving federal law; however, they focus on eight different categories primarily.

First and foremost, the FBI looks to focus on what they consider to be “national security,” this includes terrorism, counterintelligence and cyber crime – such as identity theft, internet fraud and sex crimes involving online predators. They then switch their focus to handle other categories, such as: public corruption of the government and elections, civil rights violation, organized crime, white collar crimes involving money laundering and fraud cases , as well as violent crimes on a large scale.

If you have been criminally charged with a federal crime – no matter whether it is investigated by the FBI or other, you need to be confident that you have an experienced attorney on your side that you can fully rely upon. These are serious crimes and will not be something that a generic, run-of-the-mill firm will be adequately able to handle. When you’re dealing with something of this magnitude, you need to have a hard-hitting lawyer on your side that is prepared to provide heavyweight assistance for you. This is something that will require someone who will be able to devote the necessary time, energy and resources to helping you through this process as successfully as possible.
