While being charged with any crime can upend your life, there is a world of difference between a crime charged at the state level vs. the federal level. Beyond the difference in jurisdiction for prosecuting state and federal crimes, some of the starkest contrasts between these classes of offenses are the penalties that come with a conviction.

If you are facing federal criminal charges, securing the right defense attorney to handle your case is imperative. The top Boca Raton federal criminal lawyers at Rossen Law Firm possess a broad range of knowledge and expertise in fighting back against these types of cases. We are here to build the defense you need and deserve.

Frequently Charged Federal Crimes

Federal crimes can take many different forms, ranging from misdemeanor offenses to felonies. A federal crime can involve alleged offenses against people as well as against institutions or even the federal government itself.

First, it is important to understand what makes a crime a federal offense instead of one that is charged at the state level. One of the most common ways in which an offense can be charged at the federal level is when the alleged crime spans state lines. Another is when the alleged offense occurred on federal property. If the alleged offense was perpetrated against a government employee or agency, this could also lead to charges launched at the federal instead of state level.

Some of the most commonly-charged federal crimes are types of fraud, such as wire fraud, healthcare fraud, bank fraud, bribery, mail fraud, and insurance fraud. Other examples of federal crimes include:

  • Drug trafficking
  • Money laundering
  • Forgery
  • Counterfeiting

Importantly, federal crimes are investigated by federal agencies and prosecutors, which makes it vital to have a Boca Raton attorney on your side with considerable experience defending these kinds of cases.

Potential Penalties Associated with Federal Crimes

The type of federal crime of which someone is accused, the law that it violates, whether this is a first or repeat offense, and the object of the alleged crime involved are all factors that can impact the underlying penalties attached. While some federal criminal convictions could carry as little as days in jail, others can range from decades to life.

Beyond a potentially lengthy period of imprisonment, there are often serious financial and administrative penalties attached to federal criminal offenses. These can range from thousands to millions in fines, in addition to other potential penalties such as probation, house arrest, community service, and even the loss of certain rights, such as the ability to vote.

Even after the initial sentence attached to a federal criminal conviction is carried out, certain restrictions can apply, like the ability to procure certain types of employment or to travel. A Boca Raton federal criminal attorney understands what is at stake and will work unwaveringly to safeguard your rights and freedom.

I had an unfortunate situation with a family member that lead to my arrest and being charged with DV Battery. This was the first time I had ever been arrested so I was very nervous and afraid of what was going to happen to me. After talking with Adam I decided to retain him and let me tell you this was the BEST decision I could have ever made. Adam made me feel so comfortable and confident that everything will turn out the best in my favor. He is professional, ethical and supportive. He was always available too answer any questions or concerns.Not to mention, his team at the office is awesome they are so friendly and welcoming. Anytime I had a question when I called the office they were able to guide me in the rightdirection. They always were in contact with me with any information or updates regarding my case. Adams team is GREAT!Adam delivered, my case was DISMISSED. So if you want an attorney the is gonna fight for you and get the job done retain the BEST there is Adam Rossen!!!

My initial consultation, and then to pickup the final docs. I have nothing but great things to say about these folks, and I would highly recommend them to anyone. Thanks Guys.

I had an amazing experience with The Rossen Law Firm. The staff were very professional. Attorney Susan Lawson went above and beyond working on my case. We were thoroughly prepared for trial. Mrs. Lawson reviewed hours of body and dash camera footage multiple times and aggressively performed depositions on witnesses and law enforcement.The final outcome for me was the state dropped my case, due to the great work Susan and the Rossen team performed. I didn’t even need to go to trial.This law firm does not play around. They pay attention to detail and they FIGHT FOR YOU!Thank you Adam, team, and a special thank you to Susan for your amazing work! I really appreciate you.

My experience with Rossen Law Firm was excellent. From the consultation to the end.. My attorney Susan Lawson gave my son's case all the time and attention that was needed to be successful in court. She was confident during all the court proceedings. My favorite part was when she said we are family, never once my son and I were treated other then that. I very much appreciate the knowledge and support I received through Rossen Law Firm.
