The U.S. criminal code has around 5,000 different criminal statutes and up to 300,000 regulations. Some federal crimes include mail fraud, identity theft, healthcare fraud, tax fraud, immigration crimes, and insurance fraud. You can be criminally charged with both federal and state law violations depending on your case. Federal and state courts have different procedural rules. If you have been charged with a federal crime, you will need a lawyer who knows how to operate within the federal court system and who knows how to deal with federal investigators and prosecutors.
It is not uncommon for you to be charged with a federal crime without even knowing you were committing a crime. You may not realize that by the time you are contacted by federal agents, these agents have already done a thorough investigation and are seeking incriminating evidence, not your side of the story. Federal investigations usually receive a lot of media attention. Even if the federal investigation does not lead to a prosecution, the investigation can still have a detrimental effect on your life and livelihood.
It is important for you to hire a federal criminal defense attorney the moment you are aware of being under federal investigation. A good federal defense attorney can help create a defense strategy that can help you avoid unnecessary disclosures, possibly avoid criminal charges, or minimize criminal penalties. A federal indictment is a stressful and life-altering experience. Having a federal defense attorney can help soften the impact the investigation will have on your life
