Charged With a Federal Crime?

Federal Defense Lawyer in Miami, Florida

Strong Defense for Federal Crimes in Florida

Federal crimes have harsh minimum penalties that must be imposed under federal sentencing guidelines, allowing for little to no deviation or leniency on the part of the federal judge.

To make matters worse, federal agencies are typically better funded and have more manpower to dedicate to their investigations, and federal prosecutors most often have more experience and resources to prosecute defendants in federal court.

Every client charged with a federal crime deserves strong defense and a fierce advocate. Attorney Michael Mirer is ready to champion your side of the story. For a free consultation, please call (800) 798-0243.

To counteract the aggressive investigation and prosecution that you will face for a federal crime, you need a highly experienced Miami defense attorney on your side. You need to work with a lawyer who understands all aspects of the law and can use this insight to leverage your case into the most successful position possible.


Conspiracy crimes can carry weighty consequences, regardless of if you followed the conspiracy to completion.

You may be at risk for the following:

  • Charges as if you had committed the crime
  • Additional penalties for the actions of a co-conspirator
  • Increased charges for a crime committed under conspiracy

Any crime, whether at the federal or state level, can be charged as a conspiracy.

Public Corruption

Public corruption includes a number of different actions all related to a breach of public trust. This may occur at virtually any level of government and includes corruption at a local, state or federal level. Bribery, extortion, blackmail, embezzlement, fraud, and money laundering are all examples of actions which may constitute public corruption.

Public corruption is considered to affect virtually every level of public safety, the judicial system, and politics. As such, federal law enforcement agencies such as The FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation) will spare no resource when investigating an allegedly corrupt official and will work actively to ensure he or she never holds office again.

What is the difference between a federal crime and a state crime?

This is one of the most common questions we encounter. Both state and federal laws outline particular actions which are unlawful and may be penalized by specific terms of imprisonment, fines, etc. Federal crimes are those which are prohibited under federal statutes, including those which span state lines or national borders or are crimes against the government. Interstate or international drug trafficking and wire fraud are two examples of federal crimes.

Can I face charges in federal court and state court?

Although not entirely common, it is possible that a defendant may face charges in state and federal courts. This is not considered double jeopardy (being tried twice for the same crime) as the two courts are entirely separate from one another. For example, most drug crimes are included under state and federal law. As such, a defendant could potentially face drug manufacturing or distribution charges in Florida state court and also in federal court.

Why should I involve an attorney?

Federal crimes are particularly serious offenses. The penalties that may be imposed are typically harsher than those enforced on a state level, and federal law enforcement agencies and prosecutors often have more resources and experience to attempt to secure a conviction against you. Having an attorney at your side that is knowledgeable and completely dedicated to defending your rights will be essential if you are to have the opportunity at a positive case outcome: of avoiding a conviction and maximum federal penalties.
