Tampa Federal Crimes And White Collar Crimes Attorneys
Every criminal conviction can have potentially devastating consequences. With that said, federal charges are on an entirely different level from state charges. Federal law enforcement agents and federal prosecutors have seemingly unlimited resources at their disposal to investigate and prosecute allegations of wrongdoing. When the federal government brings charges against someone, it is usually the product of months or even years of investigation. Of greater importance, judges have very little discretion in the sentencing process. If you are convicted of a federal charge, you will likely face significant prison time.
If you or someone you love faces criminal allegations in federal court, it may seem as though the government has all the leverage. You still have rights, however. Your most important right is the right to counsel. Exercise this right and enlist the services of an experienced, knowledgeable criminal defense lawyer.
