West Palm Beach Federal Defense Lawyer
Aggressively Fighting to Protect Your Rights
Being accused of any crime is never a comfortable experience but being accused of a federal crime can be especially terrifying. This is because the government can give a lot of extra resources to the prosecution to better ensure a conviction, unlike normal courts, which are not nearly as well funded. This means that any criminal matter that proceeds in a court with a federal judge and jury will be handled much differently than it would be in a state court. Therefore, those accused of federal crimes need to immediately seek a West Palm Beach federal defense lawyer.
When you are facing federal charges, Brian Pakett, our knowledgeable and experienced attorney from The Pakett Law Group, PA, can powerfully advocate for you with a wealth of understanding of exactly how federal investigations work. Even the government must adhere to a fair trial system, and we can make this happen.
Federal Criminal Charges in Florida
What counts as a federal crime can be quite widespread in nature. For example, a normal crime increases its seriousness in nature if any of the involved, injured parties included federal agencies, such as the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) or the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), or against the U.S. Treasury. If you are charged with committing a crime across borders of state lines, this is often counted as a federal crime. Even using a federal agency like the U.S. Postal Service during the event of an illegal act suddenly makes a normal crime transform into a more serious federal crime.
As a result, many charges are included under federal criminal charges that get a much higher penalty on account of who they are leveled against. You may be feeling a lot of anxiety because the stakes are so high. However, we have a great success rate in a huge variety of federal criminal cases and are confident we can give you the advocacy you need.
