Federal Criminal Defense Lawyer in Fort Lauderdale

If you are charged with a federal crime, the reality is that this is a deeply serious matter. People who are convicted of federal offenses are often severely punished with years or even decades in prison, as well as harsh fines. Avoiding or mitigating these penalties is possible, but only with competent legal counsel on your side.

Since 1998, we at The Hoffman Firm have represented clients charged with federal crimes. We know exactly how serious these matters are and respond in kind with experienced legal support for our clients. In more than 20 years of practice, we’ve found that taking a personalized approach to each client’s case can increase their odds of achieving a favorable outcome.

This means we’ll invest time in learning as much about you and the relevant facts of your case before building a customized legal strategy. If you’d like to learn more about how we can represent you, please get in touch with our federal criminal defense lawyer in Fort Lauderdale.

What Is Considered a Federal Crime?

A federal crime is any offense described by Title 18 of the U.S. Code or that violates a federal law or regulation. There are thousands of offenses that can be considered federal crimes, although some are prosecuted more frequently than others.

Commonly prosecuted federal crimes include the following:

  • Sex crimes
  • Drug offenses
  • Weapons offenses
  • White collar crimes

Just as with state crimes, federal offenses may be labeled as misdemeanors or felonies. The more severe of these is the latter, which carries penalties exceeding one year in prison. Keep in mind, however, that this is a simplified explanation – there are 43 offense levels in the U.S. Federal Sentencing Guidelines, which contains penalties as severe as life imprisonment.

Why Should I Hire a Lawyer?

While every defendant is guaranteed the right to legal counsel through a public defender, you should seek private legal counsel instead. A public defender is often handling many cases simultaneously and may not have the time or interest it takes to help you build the case you need to avoid or mitigate responsibility for your charges. This is especially problematic if you’ve been severely overcharged or accused of something you never did.

Our federal criminal defense attorney in Fort Lauderdale has more than 20 years of experience providing clients with the dedicated legal support they needed to confront the charges against them. When you are our client, rest assured that achieving the best possible outcome for you is our primary motivation.

We know that federal criminal offenses can mean years of your life are on the line. That’s why we ditch the “cookie-cutter” approach that overworked attorneys often use in favor of a customized legal strategy built for each client. We are also proactive legal advocates for our clients, which means that we actively seek opportunities that can lead to better outcomes and keep an eye out for potential pitfalls along the way.
