What To Do If You Are Charged With A Federal Crime

Attorney Marc J. Victor

People often come to the Attorneys For Freedom office after they are charged with a federal offense. What does it mean to be charged with a federal offense? How is this different than a state offense? Federal offenses are very different than state offenses.

There are many criminal defense attorneys out there, but very few of them are licensed to practice in federal court. It may be surprising to some that you need to be admitted to federal court and not all criminal defense attorneys are. In fact, very few, a small percentage of them are admitted to federal court and an even smaller percentage of them actually go to federal court on a regular basis.

If you are charged with a criminal offense in federal court, it’s very important that you get a criminal defense attorney who regularly appears in federal court. The rules in federal court are dramatically different than the rules in state court. They have different crimes, different rules of criminal procedure, and different rules of evidence. They’re processed through the justice system differently. If you are convicted, there are federal sentencing guidelines unlike anything in the state system.

So if you’re charged with a federal crime, you really need to seek out a criminal defense attorney who has lots of experience and regularly appears in the federal courts. Contact the Attorneys For Freedom Law Firm to schedule a Strategy Session to discuss your Federal Case.

My experience with Attorneys For Freedom was exceptional. Andy Marcantel was understanding to my... circumstances and always brought a thoughtful and results-oriented approach. He was amazingly knowledgeable, transparent and respectful. He will tell you exactly what to expect in your situation. It was a relief knowing Andy and his team were in my corner fighting for me every step of the way and getting me the best possible outcome. I am forever grateful to everyone at Attorneys For Freedom.read more

Had a self defense situation on a late Friday night. Called the emergency hotline and got in touch... with someone right away. Didn't matter how late it was. Once they understood the situation they gave me fantastic advice and steps and where fully prepared to spring into legal action on my behalf if they needed to. Throughly impressed. I'm heading to Chicago for the next month and I feel a lot better doing so with Attorneys For Freedom on my side. Chicago very much is a third world now and if I have to defend myself I can worry about keeping myself alive and safe rather than the legal part of it. I know that for sure.read more

My story, I was facing multiple felony charges and a prosecutor who would only settle for time in... prison! I contacted Andy and his team at Attorneys for Freedom and they got to work on my case. I was able to walk away from the courtroom with probation! Fantastic work from these guys! Don't settle for amateurs. Call the BEST!read more
