While most Los Angeles criminal defense attorneys can adequately represent you in State court, very few have the knowledge and experience to represent you in Federal Court. Federal Crimes are prosecuted in the United States District Court and are subject to federal law. Federal cases are usually more complex than state crimes and require more preparation and experience than a State felony or misdemeanor crime.

Federal sentencing guidelines require that judges must impose pre-determined minimum mandatory sentence and, even though the judges may feel that the sentence is excessive, they have virtually no authority to deviate from those guidelines. A Los Angeles Federal crime defense attorney who can navigate the complicated point-system upon which the sentencing guidelines are based, may be able to successfully argue your case in federal court resulting in a reduced sentence or even dismissal.

All of the above federal crimes are very serious charges and can carry life altering consequences. If you or someone you know has been arrested, or is being investigated for a federal offense, you need advice from an experienced California federal criminal defense lawyer. Protect your rights and your freedom….
