Federal Crimes

Federal Crime Defense Representation

If you’ve been charged with a federal crime, your case will be heard in federal court. 
The federal court system is drastically different than the state court system. Because you allegedly violated federal law, the U.S. Government has jurisdiction over your case. This means that an Assistant United States Attorney or federal prosecutor, along with federal agents from certain law enforcement agencies (FBI, IRS, DOJ, DEA, etc.) will be responsible for investigating and prosecuting your case. 
Common Federal Crimes in New Haven
Crimes frequently prosecuted in federal court in New Haven, CT include:

  • Drug-related offenses such as possession, sale, distribution, or manufacture of significant quantities of controlled substances, narcotics, or marijuana; 
  • Internet sex crimes such as the possession, distribution, or manufacturing of child pornography and solicitation of minors over the internet 
  • White collar crimes such as money laundering, mail and wire fraud, tax evasion, etc. 

Federal crimes carry much stiffer penalties than state crimes. Federal Sentencing Guidelines impose lengthy terms of imprisonment and mandatory minimum sentences, as well as restitution and fines. 
Given the severity and complexity of federal crime investigations and prosecutions, it’s crucial to enlist the services of a highly skilled federal crime trial attorney. I have extensive experience handling high-stakes federal crime cases and am well-versed in the government’s investigative tactics and prosecutorial strategies. 
If you believe the government is investigating you for a federal crime or you’ve already been investigated by local authorities and are worried that the feds may eventually get involved, you need to contact me as soon as possible so that I can take swift and decisive action to protect your rights. 
How Do I Know if I’m the Target of a Federal Investigation? 
There are a number of ways that you might find out that you are the target of a federal criminal investigation, including: 

  • Federal agents could arrest you and bring you to federal court;
  • Federal agents could get a search warrant and search your home or business; 
  • Federal agents could contact you via telephone, or leave a business card at your home or office; 
  • An Assistant United States Attorney from the Department of Justice could send you a Target Letter; 
  • A grand jury subpoenas you requesting documents
