Virginia Federal Crimes Defense Attorney
Allegations of federal crimes are very serious and should be treated as such. The FBI, DEA or CIA may be involved with investigating the incident and the U.S. Attorney’s Office will be in charge of prosecuting the case. Many crimes, including many white-collar and drug-related crimes, may have a federal charge associated with it. These government agencies have an unlimited amount of resources when it comes to investigating a case and federal prosecutors have an unlimited amount of resources when it comes to trying them. This combined with the severe penalties at the federal level makes finding the right federal crimes attorney a necessity.
Because the federal government has such a high conviction rate, it is imperative that you contact an experienced federal crime attorney who understands the process and can give you good advice on how to proceed. The rules of procedure are different than in Virginia court as well, so it is important for an attorney to understand the differences between state and federal court.
Crimes in the federal court can also involve interstate crimes or crimes committed online. Because this is the jurisdiction of the federal government, any crime that involves one of these two elements has severe penalties. Federal prosecutors do not waste time on small cases, so if you have been charged in a federal court it is important to understand that this case requires prompt, thorough attention. An experienced federal crimes lawyer will give this case the attention it deserves.
Many federal crimes carry mandatory minimum sentences that can lock a person up for years. And because there is no parole at the federal level, a person will serve the vast majority of their sentence (it possible to get time off for good behavior). The stakes are very high when you have been charged in federal court. Now is not the time to hire a second rate attorney without the experience of trying a case at the federal case. Now is the time to find a serious lawyer to fight these serious charges.
