Experienced New York Criminal Law Attorney Defends You in Federal Court

Knowledgeable law firm represents defendants charged with federal crimes in the New York area

If you are accused of a crime that violates a statute passed by Congress, you will be tried in federal court. That means you will be prosecuted by U.S. attorneys backed by the U.S. government and its considerable resources. For the best chance at a favorable outcome, you need a criminal defense attorney who has successfully defended clients charged with federal crimes.

We have built our reputation on getting results in cases that are often complex and have serious consequences for defendants and their families. Our intimate knowledge of the federal criminal justice system and our determination to challenge federal prosecutors gives our clients an advantage in every case we handle.

Determined defense counsel for clients accused of a range of federal crimes

There are many crimes charged at the federal level and adjudicated in federal court. Some of those include crimes against federal agencies, such as:

  • Securities and Exchange Commission —  securities fraud
  • U.S. Department of the Treasury —   counterfeiting
  • Environmental Protection Agency — toxic waste dumping
  • Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms — gun-running
  • Drug Enforcement Agency —  drug smuggling
  • U.S. Postal Service — mail fraud

Defendants are also charged federally when they are accused of crimes that cross state lines, such as moving a kidnapping victim from one state to another, and white collar crimes such as fraud, embezzlement, money laundering, internet crimes and forgery. When you face any federal criminal allegation, it is imperative you’re represented by as attorney who has successfully represented clients in federal cases.

Accomplished attorney battles federal prosecutors

People charged with federal crimes face prosecution by U.S. attorneys who have the full weight and substantial resources of the federal government behind them. That’s why it is vitally important to retain a defense attorney with federal court experience who is up to the challenge. Our firm has represented clients in cases before U.S. district courts and can litigate cases in U.S. courts of appeal. We draw on a thorough understanding of federal criminal law and the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure, including the Federal Bail Reform Act and Federal Sentencing Guidelines, to defend clients against a range of serious charges.
