Thorough Criminal Defense When You Are Facing Federal Prosecution
Federal criminal cases are generally more complicated than those brought in state court and penalties are potentially harsher. They may involve larger quantities of evidence based on lengthy governmental investigations. With any federal charge, it is important to seek the counsel of an experienced federal criminal defense attorney.
The moment you learn you are the target of a federal investigation, contact Michael A. Gottlieb, P.A.. We have the experience and skill to provide the quality defense you need.
Identifying Federal Crimes
With our team approach, we do not miss issues or defenses that others might overlook in federal criminal drug crimes and other federal cases such as:
- Conspiracy to commit federal drug crimes and other crimes
- White collar crimes involving activities in multiple states, including offenses defined by the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act
- Identity theft (ID theft) and credit card fraud
- Money laundering
- Mail and wire fraud
- Sex crimes involving the crossing of state lines
Drug trafficking and certain other drug cases such as the following may also be charged by federal prosecutors:
- Possessing, manufacturing or distributing illegal drugs involving the crossing of a state line or international border
- Any drug crime that occurred on a cruise ship that was registered in the United States – for example, a ship that set sail from Fort Lauderdale
Internet crimes, such as identity theft, online gambling and child pornography are usually brought in federal court.
The moment you learn you are the target of a federal investigation, turn to our team. We are ready to provide a vigorous, effective defense on your behalf.
Leaving No Stone Unturned Through Our Team Approach
When you work with our firm, you will not just have one lead attorney, but rather, two attorneys dedicated to your case. You will meet with us both right from the beginning. Combining our legal experience and different perspectives allows us to develop the strongest defense strategy.
We have handled cases in Florida’s federal courts and in federal jurisdictions across the county, including some of the largest online gambling and lottery lead cases in the country.
Our team will take the time to make sure you understand each step in your case. We will explain the law as it applies to the charges, defenses we will argue and weaknesses we have identified in the prosecutor’s case. Your concerns and goals become ours as we work to obtain the most favorable result in your case.
Guiding You Through The Federal Criminal Defense Process
We are available to apply our skills and experience to protect your rights. We will educate you about mandatory sentences for federal crimes and work hard to help you avoid them through a strong defense. If it will help your case outcome, we may push to have your crime tried at the state level, rather than in a federal court. Our lawyers will ensure you are treated fairly through all phases of your federal criminal defense.
