Experienced Federal Crimes Attorneys Defending North Hollywood and Los Angeles County Clients

Federal crimes are those which violate the laws of the United States Government beyond just state laws. These crimes, typically classified as felonies, are investigated by federal agencies and prosecuted in federal courts.

Federal crimes can involve things like national financial systems, border issues, crimes that cross state lines (physically or virtually), mail fraud, political crimes, and a host of other issues that take place at a national scale. Because of the seriousness of federal crimes, it is vital to talk to a criminal defense attorney as soon as you learn you are under investigation or are charged with a crime.

Understanding Federal Cases

Federal cases differ from state cases in a few important ways. For one, federal arrests are generally made by federal agencies like the FBI, DEA, or ATF, or by local agencies working with a federal agency as part of a joint task force. Federal arrests are made either at the direction of a warrant from a magistrate or an indictment issued by a grand jury. In both cases, the issuing parties will have reviewed significant evidence of your involvement in the crime.

Legal Defenses for Federal Crimes

When it comes to investigating federal crimes, federal agencies do not mess around. It is important to realize that if you have been charged with a federal crime, investigators likely have substantial evidence tying you to the alleged crime. Finding the right legal strategy for your case depends on the nature of the charges and the evidence against you.
