New York Federal Crime Attorneys

Aggressive Defense When You Need It Most

If you’ve been accused of a federal offense in New York, your case won’t be charged at the state level. Rather, it will take place in federal court, where the punishments are often much harsher than those issues for state law violations. For this reason alone, it’s absolutely necessary to obtain proven legal representation as soon as possible.

The earlier you involve a defense attorney in your case, the better. With a proven federal crime lawyer on your side, you can more confidently enter each stage of the legal process, from arraignment to formal hearings and all the way to trial. Contact a New York federal crime lawyer at our office to get started.
