San Francisco Federal Crime Lawyer
Have you been charged with a federal offense?
Most crimes are tried at the state level. This is because in our country, each state has its own unique set of laws and penalties. Generally, a crime will be charged and sentenced according the laws of the state where the crime was committed. However, some actions are illegal under federal law, and can be tried in federal court. Federal crimes are usually of a very serious nature, and are often white collar crimes, such as
fraud. If you are being charged with a federal crime, it is essential that you hire a high-quality attorney from our firm to represent you in court.
If you are being charged with a federal crime, this is extremely severe. It can mean that the FBI or other federal agencies may have superseded state law enforcement in order to charge you. Federal law enforcement has much more power and resources than state law enforcement, and they may have been investigating you before making an arrest. Even if you have not been arrested, but you think there may be surveillance set up on your home or your business, it is important to have legal representation on your side. Federal crimes are punished under the federal sentencing guidelines, which are very strict and usually include time in federal prison, as well as huge monetary fines.
