Los Angeles Attorney Defends Those Charged with Federal Crimes

Committed to fighting for your rights every step of the way

The federal criminal justice system is tough. If you’re convicted of a federal crime, you could spend the rest of your life in prison. With so much at stake, you need an Los Angeles defense lawyer who is experienced in federal court. At the Law Offices of Arash Hashemi, we have a decade of experience defending federal offenses such as drug trafficking.

Types of federal crimes

Offenses that violate federal statutes are investigated by federal law enforcement agencies, prosecuted by the U.S. Justice Department, and tried in the federal district courts. The federal criminal justice system also may take over a case if the defendant crossed state lines during the commission of the alleged crime.

The penalties for federal offenses, especially drug crimes, can be harsh. For example, someone convicted in federal court of selling between 500 and 4,999 grams of cocaine mixture faces up to 40 years in prison. And if you have two or more prior convictions, you could face life imprisonment. Common federal offenses include:

  • Kidnapping
  • Tax evasion
  • Bank robbery
  • Interstate gambling
  • White collar crimes
  • Interstate sex trafficking
  • Drug trafficking
  • Money laundering
  • Mail fraud and Internet fraud

Federal crimes are often investigated for weeks, months and sometimes years. If you suspect that you are the target of a criminal investigation by the FBI or another federal law enforcement agency, let us protect your rights.
