  Federal Crimes
Turn to our respected legal team in Gainesville, Florida, when you, or someone you love, has been charged with a federal crime. Federal courts operate differently than state courts. Federal courts preside over cases pertaining to the United States Constitution and federal laws. The crimes that fall under federal jurisdiction are not always evident. For instance, tampering with a mailbox is a federal crime that is investigated by federal officials.

The federal court system is comprised of an intricate structure of laws, and the consequences of being convicted of a federal offense are severe. So severe, in fact, that some offenses may be punishable by the death penalty. For this reason, if you are facing federal offense charges, it is important that you seek out an attorney who has extensive experience handling criminal defense cases in federal court.

Here is a list of crimes that fall under federal jurisdiction:
  • Mortgage Fraud/Real Estate Fraud
  • Tax Fraud
  • Securities Fraud
