Consider this scenario: You have just been indicted by a Federal Grand Jury for a Federal crime under the United States Code. Or you are a Military Service member, and you have been charged with Driving Under the Influence on a military installation or charged with Shoplifting at your local Post Exchange. Most importantly, YOU ARE NOT IN A STATE COURT. You are now charged with a Federal crime in United States District Court, and your entire future is now on the line. If you are in the military, not only do you have the Court charges to deal with, you now are also facing possible administrative action by your Command which can severely and adversely affect your career. You need a Federal Criminal Defense lawyer with experience!
The FBI, DEA, IRS, and Secret Service expert investigators often want to “talk” to you BEFORE you have been officially charged with a crime. You have not actually been arrested for a crime, it’s simply a discussion. Often, people confronted with this situation, especially those who have limited experience with the criminal justice system, naturally feel fear and panic. Often, they may think that they can talk their way out of trouble, and they say and do foolish things. The prospect of prison is terrifying. The best plan is to talk to a lawyer first before this “conversation” with a federal agent. They are not your friend, but you have to understand that they have a job to do. And they do it well.
Call a lawyer BEFORE that first interview.

Federal Offenses and Charges
Generally speaking, federal offenses are often more serious than crimes that are covered under state law. Federal crimes typically involve offenses that occur on federal property, where the government is the intended target, or that are unlawful under the United States Code. Many federal crimes involve interstate or international offenses as well. Federal offenses are generally subject to the United States Sentencing Guidelines. Mr. Roberts’ expertise in this area of his federal practice is extremely important in cases where a crime has been committed, but the person accused seeks a reduced sentence.
