Lake Havasu Federal Crime Defense Lawyer

What are Federal Crimes?

A federal crime is an offense that violates some type of federal legislation, rather than state laws. Even some crimes normally considered state violations can be considered federal crimes if committed on federal property, such as at a post office or other government property. These types of charges are tried in the Federal Court system, not state courts. Not all attorneys are knowledgeable in the different rules and regulations that govern the federal courts, so consulting with a Lake Havasu criminal defense lawyer who is well-versed in both the state and federal court system is crucial to the outcome of your case. At Dwane Cates Law Group, P.L.L.C. , we have highly skilled attorneys who have considerable experience in the federal court system and who can present a strong defense on your behalf when charged with any federal crime.

Types of Federal Crimes

There are numerous charges tried on a federal level and are generally more serious than a state crime. Some of them include:

  • Possession or distribution of child pornography
  • Certain sex crimes
  • Certain fraud crimes
  • Arson
  • RICO violations
  • Counterfeiting
  • Bank fraud
  • Credit card fraud
  • Identity theft
  • Social Security fraud
  • Human trafficking
  • Kidnapping
  • Tax evasion

When charged or arrested for a federal crime you can expect a highly experienced prosecutor putting together the case against you.
