Morristown Federal Crime Attorney

Hire a Qualified Morris County Criminal Defense Lawyer

Federal crimes are arguably the most severe of all criminal charges. Any crime committed on federal property or against the federal government will be tried in federal court rather than in a state court. If you have been arrested for a federal crime, you will be facing the U.S. government in court and going up against trained federal prosecutors rather than state government officials. If convicted, the penalties for such crimes are serious. At The Law Offices of Joseph S. Scura, we offer representation for all types of federal crimes.

Penalties for Federal Crimes

Federal crimes are those investigated and prosecuted by federal agencies including the DEA, ICE, FBI, and others. When it comes to crimes tried in the federal court system, the stakes are much higher than New Jersey state courts. Your reputation and future are on the line. Whether you have already been arrested or believe you are being investigated, seeking representation is essential.

The consequences for a federal offense of any type can be life-altering. The Law Offices of Joseph S. Scura may be able to help you avoid a conviction and the resulting penalties. The exact consequences are based on a number of factors, including the type of crime which was allegedly committed and sentencing guidelines.
