New York Federal Crime Defense Attorneys
Defending the Accused in New York & New Jersey
Although most crimes are charged at the state level, some offenses are so serious that they can bring forth federal criminal charges from the U.S. government. Federal charges violate federal law, occur on federal property, are investigated by federal agencies, or cross state lines. Federal courts are the highest in the land and have their own procedures, personnel, and federal sentencing guidelines.
The Law Offices of Iannuzzi and Iannuzzi provides highly skilled and experienced legal representation for anyone being investigated by federal authorities or who has been charged with a federal crime in New York or New Jersey. Our criminal defense team has a long and successful history helping our clients obtain the most favorable results—dating back to 1930, when our firm first opened. Our senior partner has 50+ years of experience as a trial lawyer, which includes years as a law professor and author of legal books.
Federal Offenses & Penalties
Conducted by tough federal officers trained and determined to get convictions, federal investigations are among the most intense and aggressive. These investigators have the full resources of the federal government. They can include the FBI, DEA, Secret Service, IRS, U.S. Postal Service, ATF, U.S. Department of Justice, and more.
Being subject to one of these investigations can be intimidating and extremely stressful. If you suspect that you are being investigated, you should seek the services of one of our New York federal crime defense lawyers. Never answer any questions or sign anything without our protection and counsel.
Federal crimes for which you can be investigated or charged can include (but are not limited to):
- Bank fraud
- Bankruptcy fraud

- Health care fraud, such as Medicare fraud

Federal Sentencing Guidelines
One of the main differences between state and federal cases is sentencing. A federal judge has wide discretion in sentencing within the statutory minimums and maximums of the federal guidelines. Judges are not obligated to pass sentences based on any agreements between the prosecution and the defense. Our New York federal crime defense attorney can step in to actively advocate on your behalf in regard to sentencing, presenting mitigating evidence as regards your background, character, criminal history, and other extenuating circumstances.
