What Is A Federal Crime?

Most federal crimes are similar to a state crime in regard to the types of charges that can be filed. However, there are some unique challenges presented by federal charges. The federal government has seemingly unlimited resources when prosecuting a crime. Additionally, the federal court system and sentencing guidelines make defending a federal criminal charge an immense task. It is urgent that you contact an experienced federal criminal defense lawyer to ensure your rights are protected.

Ohio Federal Court Attorneys

We assist clients who need help with the following federal criminal law matters:

  • Drug crimes including distribution, possession, manufacturing, and trafficking
  • White collar crimes including theft, embezzlement, bank fraud, and fraud
  • Robbery
  • Property crimes

The unfortunate reality for a person charged with a federal crime is that their case is much more likely going to result in a conviction than a state charge. Hiring an experienced defense attorney to defend you against a federal crime will help level the playing field. Our firm is familiar with the complex federal sentencing guidelines and court system and knowledgeable about possible departures the court can evaluate when reaching their sentencing decision. We have an established working relationship with the United States Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio. Our firm is experienced in negotiating favorable plea agreements, if needed, with federal prosecutors. A favorable plea agreement may save a person charged with a federal crime months or years in prison.
