Suffolk County Federal Crimes Defense Lawyers

Hiring a federal defense lawyer is critical for anyone charged with a federal crime. Federal crimes often carry harsher punishments than those committed at the state level, such as many years in prison and steep fines.

Examples of federal crimes include tax evasion, money laundering, bank robbery, computer fraud, terrorism, murder of a government official or crimes that cross state lines. A federal crime is not handled by the local government or state police. Instead, these types of crimes fall under the jurisdiction of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, known as the FBI, or by the Homeland Security Agency. Federal law is complex and can be very confusing, so it is important to hire an attorney experienced representing clients in the federal judicial system.

The Importance of Hiring an Experienced Lawyer 

It is important for a defendant to choose a federal defense lawyer who specializes in federal cases because they are usually very different from cases that move through the court system at the state level. The attorneys at the Law Office of Naiburg, Obedin and Weissman are familiar with court proceedings at the federal level, including any recent rulings of the U.S. Supreme Court that may affect the outcome of the case. They also clearly understand federal rules of evidence, criminal proceedings, trial procedures and sentencing standards.
