Federal Crimes Header



Federal crimes typically involve the violation of a law passed by the United States Congress and criminal actions that cross the borders of individual states. When a criminal charge is brought by the Federal Courts, often the resources of high-level government agencies – such as the Federal Bureau of Investigation or the Drug Enforcement Agency – are backing it up.

If you’ve been charged with a Federal Crime, it is critical to immediately retain an experienced lawyer to protect yourself, ensure your rights are not being violated, and defend against the immense resources of the United States government.

Police officers are trained to obtain statements that may be used against you at a later date in a court of law. Without direction from a skilled Milwaukee criminal defense lawyer, you could accidentally incriminate yourself during this questioning. Though you may be tempted to declare your innocence anything you say during your arrest can be used against you. The fifth amendment gives you the right to remain silent and not give statements until you've spoken with your attorney. Our skilled Milwaukee criminal defense lawyers are available to provide a free consultation for your pre-indictment investigation case.


White-collar crimes such as mail fraud generally involve the use of a false identity to gain access to benefits or finances.

Racketeering and conspiracy involving two or more people give the court system the right to prosecute or level civil penalties against you under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organization Act, or RICO. If found guilty, a defendant accused of these charges can face severe penalties. RICO violations may carry severe penalties, including up to 20 years in prison and thousands of dollars in fines.
