Federal Crimes

Federal Crimes Lawyers Serving New York City

Professional Experience & Results In Your Corner

Federal crime investigations and prosecutions are backed by the vast resources of the federal government. Depending on the nature of suspicion or accusations held against you, you could be facing scrutiny by such federal law enforcement agencies as the FBI, the DEA, SEC, IRS, or other hard-hitting organizations looking for evidence with which to obtain a conviction in a federal court. These types of charges can range from drug trafficking to human trafficking, armed robbery to complex white collar crimes such as various types of fraud and more.

How Can I Protect Myself From Federal Charges?

When facing allegations of a federal crime violation, it is vital that you seek representation from a law firm licensed to practice in federal court and that has experience defending such crimes. Federal rules involving court procedure and more are not the same as those pertaining to state crimes. Furthermore, federal sentencing guidelines can result in harsher penalties. You will need to counter the charges filed against you with a relentless and savvy defense. At Hamilton Clarke, LLP, you can work with defenders who have the experience, determination, and drive to help you at this critical time. Our goal will be to find reasonable doubt to cast upon the prosecution’s case against you.

Federal Crime Charges & Information

Federal crimes consist of those offenses that violate federal laws, that cross state lines, or take place on or against federal property. These are crimes that are often the subject of intense investigation for months or even years by a federal agency. These agencies focus intently on finding evidence through massive attention to detail examining vast amounts of evidence. They are highly-trained and aggressive investigators and prosecutors.

New crimes are always being added to the list of those that are federal violations. More than four thousand federal crimes exist for which you could be prosecuted. In any incident, you could find yourself arrested and charged with multiple charges due to the huge and varied amount of federal crimes on the books.

Examples of these crimes include but are not limited to:

  • Mail and wire fraud
  • Securities fraud
  • Healthcare fraud
  • Mortgage fraud
  • Investment scams and other financial crimes
  • Racketeering
  • Drug crimes
  • Terrorist threats
  • Internet child pornography
  • Kidnapping
  • Public corruption
  • Obstruction of Justice
  • Conspiracy

What Can Conviction of a Federal Crime Lead to?

These are serious crimes that can have a long-lasting and devastating effect on your life. Convictions can result in harsh sentences in federal prisons, hefty fines, restitution to victims, and a future with a permanent criminal record. If convicted of a federal crime, you may find it difficult upon your release to find employment or to qualify for professional career licenses or educational opportunities. If you are a green card holder, you may be subject to negative immigration consequences.
