FEDERAL CRIMINAL DEFENSE

Being accused of a federal crime is a serious matter. The government has an incredible amount of power and the stakes are high. Sentences for federal crimes often range in terms of years in prison. In addition, severe minimum mandatory sentences are frequently imposed for certain crimes.

Due to the extraordinary expense of healthcare and insurance in America, fraud is on the rise.

Several agencies are involved in these types of investigations such as the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).
