Federal Offenses Attorneys in Philadelphia

If you are arrested in Pennsylvania, it is usually because you are suspected of breaking a state law. These cases are often handled by local police departments and prosecuted by the local district attorney at the local or county-level. However, there are also federal law enforcement agencies which operate in Pennsylvania, including the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI), and many other Federal agencies, which may detain you and charge you with federal offenses: crimes that specifically go against the United States Criminal Code and are prosecuted in Federal Court.

Some federal offenses include:

  • Bank robbery
  • Counterfeiting
  • Drug trafficking
  • Gun crimes
  • Internet child pornography
  • Insurance fraud
  • Kidnapping across state lines
  • Money laundering
  • Organized crime (including RICO offenses)
  • Tax evasion
  • Terrorism
  • Threatening a federal public official
  • Using the U.S. Postal Service for any criminal offense
  • White collar crimes

Federal offenses often carry far-reaching consequences and a conviction can result in federal prison sentences, expensive fines, and other penalties. If you have been accused of a federal crime, you should contact an experienced criminal defense attorney immediately.

If you reach out to us today, our skilled attorneys may be able to speak with federal investigators and head off an indictment in your case or offer cooperation in exchange for a reduced sentence or dismissal of the charges altogether. If you are innocent of the charges levied against you, we are not afraid to take your case to trial and demonstrate your innocence to a judge or jury.

The procedures, laws, and charges involved in Federal Court are very different than at the state level and not every law firm is equipped to handle these types of cases. At Kenny, Burns & McGill, we have fought countless criminal and civil cases in Federal Court from start to finish and are prepared to handle complex, sensitive, and highly-consequential federal offenses. Clients choose us for our strict confidentiality and professionalism in and beyond the courtroom, especially when the stakes are high.
