Fighting Federal Crime Charges in Florida

Strong Defense Solutions for Serious and Complex Criminal Charges
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 the FBI, ATF, CIA or DEA leading the investigation in these cases, it’s hard to fight federal crimes on your own.
Because these agencies have teams of prosecutors and the full weight of the federal government behind them, it is important to level the playing field by retaining the help of a proven and trial-tested lawyer. As a former prosecutor who has 20 years of experience handling many high-profile cases, Attorney Simon Wiseman is top-rated by both past clients and his peers in the legal community. He has built a strong reputation for fighting for his clients’ rights, future, and freedom. No two cases are the same, so we’ll look at your exact situation and the evidence against you to build a tailor-made solution to your federal criminal defense.
Facing both Federal and State Charges
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.
