Federal Crimes Law Firm's NJ Criminal Defense Attorneys

Benedict & Altman, Experience Criminal Defense Law Firm in NJ

Certain offenses are prosecuted by the federal government via the United States Attorney, rather than in New Jersey courts or by local officials.  Federal cases involve crimes in which the federal government has an interest such as those that cross state lines, or which involve federally regulated industries.  Federal courts also have jurisdiction of offenses that occur on federal property or are committed against federal employees.

The federal system has different rules of procedure, rules of evidence, and sentencing guidelines than state courts.  You need an attorney who is knowledgeable about this court system.  It is important to have an attorney who can navigate this complex system.

Our trial lawyers represent individuals in federal investigations, pleas, and trials

Our lawyers are experienced in representing clients charged with federal crimes, but can also get involved before any charges are filed, when the government is still deciding whether to prosecute.  Often, that can be the most important time to have an attorney, who can help steer the government’s decision-making.

Our trial attorneys have vast experience handling federal offenses including, but not limited to:

  • Tax offenses
  • Mail and wire fraud
  • Corruption by public officials
  • Other white-collar crimes
  • Extortion
  • Bank robberies
  • Narcotics conspiracies

We make sure our clients are well informed about their case, and well advised about how to proceed.
