Milwaukee Federal Crimes Lawyers
Serious Charges Require Serious Defense
Federal crimes are those that cross state lines or are committed on U.S.
government property. The offenses are investigated by well-known agencies,
such as the FBI and DEA. Agents spend months or sometimes years looking
into alleged offenses. This means that by the time you are charged, the
agency has already spent a significant amount of time collecting evidence
and building their case. That's why it's crucial to get an attorney on
your side right away. Having skilled legal representation from the moment
you learn about the accusations can help level the playing field.

Representation for a Variety of Federal Crimes
The U.S. government has various statutes concerning prohibited behavior.
If a person violates a law, they will be harshly prosecuted and could
face steep penalties, which are often harsher than those imposed for state
crimes. Our lawyers work relentlessly to help the accused seek to avoid
or minimize potential punishments.
We provide effective defense for all types of federal crimes, including,
but not limited to:
Bank Fraud: An offense occurs when a person knowingly uses deception to obtain something
of value under the control of a bank, credit union, or other financial
institution insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance company (FDIC). It
can be penalized by up to 30 years in prison and/or a fine of up to $1,000,000.
Child pornography: Anyone who makes a child engage in sexually explicit conduct to create
a visual depiction of it, or who transports, receives, or possesses such
material may be charged with a federal crime. The punishments for an offense
include imprisonment and a fine. The length of the prsion sentence and
the amount of fine depend on the type of act the person was convicted for.
Drug trafficking: It’s illegal for anyone to make, distribute, or dispense a controlled
substance. The conviction penalties vary depending on the type and amount
of drug involved.
Healthcare fraud: A person may be accused of this offense if they knowingly use false pretenses
or engage in a scheme designed to defraud a healthcare benefit program.
The conviction penalties depend on the facts of the case but can include
up to life imprisonment.
Money laundering: This type of scheme involves transferring illegally obtained money through
different channels to make it appear legitimate. A conviction could result
in up to 20 years in prison and/or a fine of up to $500,000.
RICO Crimes: It’s unlawful for a person to engage in a pattern of racketeering
as part of an enterprise. The federal law identifies 35 different acts
considered RICO offenses, such as murder, kidnapping, and robbery. The
conviction penalties may include up to 20 years’ imprisonment (or
life if that’s the maximum term for the underlying offense).
Tax evasion: If a person willfully fails to pay their taxes, they may be charged with
this offense. If they’re convicted, they could face up to 5 years
in prison and/or a fine of up to $100,000.
