Federal crimes are some of the most serious crimes one can be charged with. You need an Orlando federal defense attorney who has federal experience defending your rights. Most criminal defense lawyers only practice in state court so make sure you hire a qualified federal lawyer. Federal crimes are similar to state crimes but the punishments can be much more severe.
We defend all types of federal crimes including but not limited to:
Those charged with federal crimes have typically been under investigation for a long period of time. There are very strict punishments if convicted for a federal crime which include imprisonment, probation, significant fines, and property forfeiture. Moreover, the federal sentencing guidelines leave no room for any kind of leniency or deviation on the part of the judge. With police and investigative agencies like FBI, ATF, CIA or DEA leading the investigation in these cases it’s hard to fight federal crimes on your own.
Federal crimes are those which violate the federal statutes of the United States . In many cases, individual states have similar laws to the federal government and prohibit the same activity. Because of this, an individual can be charged on both the federal and state level for the same crime.
This is not "double jeopardy" or a violation of the fifth amendment, which states that an individual cannot be tried twice for the same crime. The fifth amendment protects individuals against being tried twice for the same crime in the same jurisdiction, but the federal and state courts are separate jurisdictions.
