These cases must be approached with the utmost seriousness. A federal conviction can bring severe penalties that are often based on mandatory sentencing guidelines, not on the opinion of a judge. In many cases, a prison sentence is a strong possibility.
Federal cases can be complex. Federal courts have their own rules and processes. If you or a loved one has been charged with a federal crime in New Jersey, or you are being investigated by federal authorities, you will benefit from having the help of a lawyer with extensive knowledge of those rules and processes.
