Century City Federal Criminal Defense Lawyer

Federal Criminal Defense Attorney in Woodland Hills

Have you recently been accused of committing a federal offense, or are you currently in the target of a pre-file investigation? In the United States crimes are categorized as state and federal crimes, with by far the majority of crimes being prosecuted on the state level. However, a federal crime or a federal offense has been made illegal by federal legislation, and is therefore prosecuted in federal court. When you are facing criminal charges for a federal crime, you need an attorney who is qualified to represent you in the federal court system.

A federal offense may include an act that is committed on U.S. federal property or an Indian reservation, or the crime may cross state lines and involve the United States Postal Service as in mail fraud or the crime can also involve kidnapping, counterfeiting or trafficking drugs across state lines.

There are a number of large federal agencies that are granted significant power to investigate federal offenses, some of which include the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) among others. Given the fact that these government entities have unlimited resources and manpower invested in tracking down and prosecuting those who break federal law, it's vitally important that you seek superior legal representation from a Century City federal criminal defense attorney from our firm right away.

FBI & The United States Attorney's Office

The very heart of the FBI's operations lies in investigations, many of which deal directly with federal offenses. The FBI currently has jurisdiction over more than 200 areas of federal law, many of which are white collar crimes made illegal under federal legislation:

  • Health care fraud
  • Insurance fraud
  • Money laundering
  • Intellectual property theft
  • Bankruptcy fraud
  • Computer crimes
  • Securities and commodities fraud
  • Internet fraud
  • Identity theft
  • Mortgage fraud
  • Violent crimes against children
  • Online predators

Other common federal crimes include: postal worker embezzlement, Ponzi schemes, conspiracy, drug trafficking, kidnapping, securities fraud, Medicare fraud, tax fraud, civil rights violations, drug crimes, financial fraud, fraud involving federal programs, immigration crimes, public corruption, investor fraud, mutual fund fraud, shareholder fraud, embezzlement etc.

When a federal offense has been committed, it is the United States Attorney's Office that investigates and prosecutes federal criminal violations; the agency does this in conjunction with federal and local investigative agents and police officers. In most cases it's the local law enforcement agency that will initiate criminal investigations in response to allegations, complaints or evidence they have received from their local citizens.

Due to the fact that many federal crimes involve fraud and are categorized as white collar crimes, which are otherwise non-violent, financially motivated crimes, a conviction can result in victim restitution, imprisonment, community service, fines, and the loss of one's professional license. For many professionals working in the financial industry, the stigma attached to a criminal conviction of this nature can ruin a hard-won reputation and career; don't let this happen to you.
