Los Angeles Federal Crime Attorney
Are You Facing Federal Charges in a California Federal Court?
A federal crime is an offense against the United States that is in violation of U.S. federal law. Federal offenses are investigated by a variety of agencies such as the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), Department of Homeland Security (DHS), U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), Internal Revenue Service (IRS), and the Bureau of Alcohol, Firearms, Tobacco and Explosives (ATF). Depending on the specific nature of the crime, federal criminal investigations can take many months, or even years, before formal charges are filed. Early intervention by an experienced federal criminal lawyer can often direct the course of the investigation and prevent an indictment.
