Common Federal Charges
While many crimes can be classified under the State and Federal levels, some offenses are specifically handled by the latter. Here are some of the most common Federal charges someone may face:
- Tax evasion
- Mail fraud
- Bank robbery
- Credit card fraud
- Identity theft
- Violations of the Federal Racketeer and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO)
- Damaging or destroying public mailboxes
If you are convicted of one of the above crimes, it’s possible to see severe penalties like heavy fines, extensive jail time, and difficulty finding jobs or housing. That’s why choosing the right attorney to help you fight the charges is one of the most important steps you will take.
I see the person behind the charges
After trying so many cases, one thing I understand is that each case involves a unique person. I believe one-hundred percent that a successful defense attorney has to create complete trust with their clients. Regardless of how serious the charges are, I will listen to my clients and provide them with an opportunity to tell their story. I place an emphasis on honest, clear communication that keeps you informed through every step of the situation. That’s why I’ve earned not just the respect of my clients, but also positive recognition from my peers.
As a former prosecutor, I know both sides of the process and use my knowledge of those tactics to defend my clients. I am proactive in my pursuit of success—visiting crime scenes, attaining relevant photos, and sharing the positive aspects of your character—and will stand with you throughout the entire course of your case.
