Federal prosecution requires an attorney with federal defense experience
There are many ways to end up in federal court. If you are accused of breaking a federal law, you will be tried at the federal level. Crimes against federal agencies such as the Securities and Exchange Commission (e.g., securities fraud), U.S. Treasury (e.g., counterfeiting), Environmental Protection Agency (e.g., toxic waste dumping), Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (e.g., gun-running) and Drug Enforcement Agency (e.g., drug smuggling) are federal crimes. Our attorneys help clients defend against even the most serious charges.
Additional federal crimes
Defendants are also charged federally when they are accused of crimes that cross state lines, such as moving a kidnapping victim from one state to another. Crimes that use a federal agency, such as the U.S. Postal Service, to perpetrate an illegal act are likewise federal. Our attorneys understand federal criminal law and all aspects of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure, including:
- Federal Bail Reform Act
- Motions to compel discovery
- Federal sentencing guidelines
Don’t give the federal prosecutor an added advantage. Our attorneys handle all types of criminal cases, from white collar crimes to accusations of homicide. No matter what obstacle has been placed in your way, rest assured that the attorneys at Scardino & Scardino strive diligently to help you overcome it and work tenaciously to attain the best possible result for you.
