Los Angeles Federal Criminal Attorney
Have you been charged with a federal crime?
If you are contacted by federal investigators for any reason, it is important to find out whether you have been contacted as a potential suspect, or if information is simply being requested of you (as a witness) for a case against another. It is highly recommended that you contact a Los Angeles federal crime attorney if you are facing a
federal investigation of any kind.
An experienced lawyer can talk to you about what you may be up against and can advise you as to whether you may be at risk of facing formal charges. If you are in danger of being a suspect or are actually under investigation for a federal crime, you will need an attorney to aggressively defend your interests and protect your rights. This applies inside and outside of the federal courtroom; whether formal charges have been filed against you.
Federal criminal charges often involve more complex cases which have the potential for harsh penalties. These cases are tried in federal court and are prosecuted by the United States Attorney’s office, which often has more time and resources than a state prosecutor. Additionally, federal prosecutors often have a higher level of training, knowledge and experience than prosecuting attorneys on the state level. The above makes it all the more important to consult and work with a Los Angeles federal crime defense lawyer who has a great deal of experience with federal charges and the federal court system.

Federal Drug Crimes
Certain drug-related offenses may be investigated by federal agencies and prosecuted by the federal government. These are generally reserved to address larger scale drug operations, such as interstate or international drug trafficking, but the DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration), FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation) or other federal agencies may become involved in lesser offenses as well. Drug crimes are outlined both in state and federal law, making them particularly serious to deal with.
