Defending People Against Federal Criminal Charges
Federal criminal convictions bring with them the possibility of lengthy prison sentences without the possibility of parole, expensive fines and asset forfeiture that can leave you with nothing. The U.S. Attorney’s office will have seemingly unlimited financial resources at its disposal.
That is why choosing an attorney who knows how to level the playing field is so crucial. At O’Brien Hatfield Reese, PA, we have handled hundreds of federal criminal cases. Founding attorney Mark J. O’Brien — a former prosecutor — and the rest of our lawyers can protect your legal rights and help you build a strong defense against nearly any type of federal criminal charge.
While we are located in Tampa and Orlando, we can defend clients throughout Florida and across the country.
The Federal Criminal Cases We Handle
It is important that you contact our office as soon as you learn you are under federal investigation. We can walk you through how the federal criminal process works and what your options are. We can help with charges related to:
- Sex crime allegations, including child pornography and other Internet crimes
- White collar and financial crimes, including all types of financial fraud, embezzlement, environmental crimes and corruption
- Federal drug crimes, including all types of trafficking and manufacturing crimes

Federal trials and plea negotiations are exceedingly complex, and not just any criminal defense lawyer has the experience to handle them. Our lawyers at O’Brien Hatfield Reese, PA, understand federal sentencing guidelines and how they will affect you. We can craft a case strategy that gives you the best chance of resolving your case in a positive manner.
