Orlando Federal Criminal Defense Attorneys

Orlando, Florida Federal Court Lawyers

Handcuffs - Federal Crimes Defense in Florida

Simply put, any crime that violates federal law is charged in federal court. When it comes to federal criminal investigations, government agencies can be aggressive and relentless in their pursuit of evidence. These investigations often begin months before a criminal charge is formally filed. This doesn’t give you much time to plan a defense strategy!

At the Alers Law Firm we have the experience and knowledge required to represent you in federal court. We are fiercely committing to protecting your rights during all phases of a federal criminal case.

Federal crimes include, but are not limited to:

  • Terrorism
  • Conspiracy
  • Counterintelligence
  • Theft
  • Crimes against civil rights
  • Cyber crimes
  • Arms trafficking
  • Racketeering
  • White collar crimes

We’re available 24/7! If you’re facing a federal conviction, contact Alers Law Firm at (407) 988-0992.

What is a Federal Crime vs a State Crime?

A lot of major crimes are violations of state law, but there are fewer federal crime classes because they are considered federal crimes only if there is national risk is a stake. Federal crimes include:

  • Crimes that occur across state lines
  • Crimes where the defendant crossed state lines
  • Crimes that involve federal officers or federal land
  • Customs and immigration violations

Are Federal Crimes Worse?

If you are convicted of a federal offense, you could face harsh penalties. While the penalties for a state crime or a federal crime depend on the specific circumstances surrounding the case, you can often receive more severe penalties for a federal offense than a state offense. For example, if convicted of a federal crime, you could face federal prison rather than a state prison to complete your prison sentence.
