How Do You Know That Your Case Is Federal?

Put simply, you will be charged with a federal crime if you violate federal law. The attorneys in charge of federal criminal cases are federal prosecutors, who are called Assistant United States Attorneys (AUSA) and who work for the U.S. Attorney’s Office. Federal agents of the FBI, the DEA, ICE, or the Department of Homeland Security assist the U.S. Attorney’s Office in investigating and prosecuting federal offenses. If you are contacted by a federal agency or if you receive a target letter, an indictment, or simply a request to appear from these agencies—your case is federal.

Is Punishment More Severe Under Federal Law?

It is often said that penalties under federal law are more severe, and for the most part that stands true. For example, under federal law there is no parole, while most state laws routinely release sentenced prisoners long before their actual sentence is over. Also, many federal crimes contain minimum prison sentences of 10 years and more. Life in prison, which is a rare punishment under state law and primarily reserved for murder cases, is imposed even for non-violent crimes such as drug trafficking, sex abuse, and certain fraud cases within the federal judiciary system.

At What Point Should You Hire an Attorney?

Clients call us for help in different stages of their case. Some new clients just discovered that they are targets of an investigation, whereas other new clients are about to face trial or sentencing and want to switch to the defense lawyers of our Firm. Regardless of the stage your case is in, our experienced Federal defense lawyers know how to effectively address your concerns without wasting time. But keep in mind: while it is never too late to hire experienced criminal defense counsel, there is also no reward for hesitation in the federal criminal system.

Which Federal Crimes Do We Handle?

While the list of federal offenses is long, the following five crime categories represent some of the most prosecuted federal crimes in the United States.

Why Do Clients Trust Oberheiden, P.C.?

Oberheiden, P.C. has built its reputation on serving as an effective resource for clients facing federal investigations and prosecutions. Here are a few of the reasons why our clients routinely place so much trust in us.

1. Our Experience

Practicing at the federal level is very different from practicing at the state level, and our lawyers enjoy combined experience practicing federal law. If your company needs assistance winding its way through the maze of federal regulations, we can help you avoid a federal investigation in the first place. If an investigation has already commenced, our experience can make a decisive difference in the fight to ensure that you face as few negative consequences as possible.

2. Our Perspective

Several of our attorneys enjoyed distinguished careers as federal prosecutors with the Department of Justice before they turned in their badges and came to work for us. Our firm’s experience playing both sides of the chessboard has endowed us with a superior insight into how the federal government approaches investigations and prosecutions. This insight is truly valuable, and can have a decisive effect on the outcome of your case.

3. Our Results

Federal investigations can be downright frightening because of what could happen – millions of dollars in fines, corporate bankruptcy, and even incarceration. These consequences are not inevitable if you assemble an effective legal team early in the process. Many of our clients have faced no civil or criminal liability once their investigation concluded, and others have seen their ultimate liability drastically reduced.

4. Our Team Approach

The federal government acts deliberately and methodically to form a team of investigators, federal agents, and prosecutors to your case. To fight back, you need a team of your own with the proven ability to work cohesively under pressure. At Oberheiden, P.C., our attorneys are adept at combining their knowledge and experience in a way that maximizes their effectiveness – and provides you with the strongest possible defense.

5. Our Dedication to Our Clients

One of the most important qualities of an effective defense team is also one of the most intangible – attitude. At Oberheiden, P.C., we are passionate about protecting the interests of our clients, just as if it were our own interests we were protecting. Nobody messes with our clients.
