Being accused of a federal crime is very serious and can involve major consequences. If you or someone you know has been arrested for a federal crime, or is currently being investigated for a federal offense, you need advice from a criminal defense lawyer who is experienced in handling federal crimes. The federal criminal defense attorneys at Kope & Associates will work hard to protect your rights and preserve your freedom.
Charges may be filed against you in federal court if you have committed an offense under the U.S. criminal code as opposed to the Pennsylvania criminal code. Federal charges may also be filed if you have committed an offense on federal government property. In some cases, you may be charged both at the state and the federal levels without violating double jeopardy laws.
The competent attorneys at Kope & Associates are aggressive federal criminal defense attorneys who handle a variety of federal crimes including:
- White collar fraud
- Drug and narcotic cases
- Serious gun charges
- Computer crimes
- RICO violations (racketeering)
- SEC violations and securities fraud
- Tax Crimes
Hiring a skilled and experienced federal criminal defense lawyer can mean the difference between little/no jail time and several years in prison. Federal cases are usually more complex than state crimes and they require more preparation and experience than a state felony or misdemeanor crime. While most criminal defense attorneys can adequately represent you in state court, very few have the knowledge and experience to represent you in federal court. The federal criminal defense attorneys at Kope & Associates are highly experienced and have been successful in the defense of many federal crimes.
