Federal Crime Lawyer in Marietta

Have you been charged with a federal crime?

Rather than a misdemeanor or felony offense, a federal crime is one that violates United States federal law. What this means is that rather than violating the law at a state or local level, the law has been violated at a national level. Because of the nature of these allegations, the consequences that you are facing are the most serious in nature and will turn your world upside down if you are convicted. Although it is important to remember that you still remain innocent until proven guilty, the law is not easy on those who are accused of federal offenses.

It is not secret that the fines and terms of imprisonment posed by federal crimes are severe, but there are also a number of other consequences you face that can impact your future well-being.
