Federal Crimes Defense in Miami, Broward and Hialeah


A crime can be charged in Federal Court when an individual’s activities violate the United State code, federal legislation, involves interstate commerce (is committed over two State lines), or the crime is committed in International waters of which the United States avails itself of jurisdiction.

While many federal crimes can be charged in state court, the crimes often time have different potential penalties. These penalties will vary on a case-by-case basis, but will always involve the Federal Sentencing Guidelines. These guidelines will look at the charged offense, the details of the offense, as well as the criminal history of the defendant.

Another significant difference in a federal case is that unlike state court, federal government agencies with unlimited resources will be involved in the prosecution.

Defense and support in Federal Cases

It is critical for someone who is under investigation for a federal crime to seek counsel as early as possible in the process. The Federal Government takes considerable care and time in preparing its case prior to filing charges and it is in your best interest to involve a knowledgeable lawyer early on in the process to intercede on your behalf with the Government before you are arrested. In some cases we may be able to negotiate a resolution before an arrest or provide the evidence necessary for the Government to forego filing charges at all.
