We Can Handle Any Federal Crime Case

In the simplest terms, a federal crime is one that violates federal laws. The federal government also handles criminal cases involving crimes committed against the US government or those that happen on federal property. Additionally, they also have the jurisdiction to hear some of the same types of cases that are handled at the state level but which also are in violation of federal laws. However, if something is being heard in federal court, this typically means that the case is both significant and serious.

Though there is some overlap, the federal courts are their own isolated system. If you are facing federal charges, you need to work with an experienced federal criminal defense attorney in Michigan who is experienced in defending cases in federal court. Federal cases tend to be very involved and time-consuming. They often involve several government agencies and require extreme attention to detail. Levine & Levine has been defending cases in federal court since 1987, and our attorneys have 130 years of collective experience.

Federal Sentencing Guidelines

Depending on what you are charged with, federal sentencing guidelines tend to be similar to state sentencing. However, federal crimes often have minimum sentencing requirements that limit the judge's ability to be lenient with you. Because of this, you must work with an aggressive Michigan federal defense lawyer. An experienced federal attorney can make a significant difference to your case and help set you up for the best possible outcome.

The stages of a federal criminal case include:

  • Investigation
  • Indictment
  • Arraignment
  • Plea-bargaining
  • Preliminary hearing
  • Pre-trial motions
  • Trial
  • Post-trial motions
  • Sentencing

All stages of the process are extremely important. At Levine & Levine, we leave nothing to chance. Our Michigan federal defense lawyers take a detail-oriented, intellectual approach. We dig deep into every aspect of a client's case and work to uncover every opportunity. Pre-trial motions are especially important as they can significantly impact a case's outcome and can even result in a total dismissal.

Important pre-trial motions include:

  • Motion for change of venue
  • Motion to dismiss
  • Motion to suppress
