You should not face a federal charge on your own. The federal government has unlimited resources to investigate and prosecute you. Through federal agencies such as the FBI, DEA, IRS, Secret Service and the Dept. of Homeland security, the federal government can focus in on almost every aspect of an individual's everyday life.

The federal government has the ability to intercept and listen to your phone calls, collect video evidence, place trackers on your vehicles, as well as employing many other powerful tools in an investigation. Punishments for federal crimes can be severe. In some cases, there are mandatory - minimum sentences that cannot be negotiated.

Federal investigations are complex and serious. Often Federal investigations take months and sometimes years. Federal agents are thorough and aggressive when building a case against an individual. If you are in any way suspicious that the federal government may be investigating you then it is time to consult with an attorney that is experience in handling federal court cases. Only an experienced federal defense attorney can ensure that your rights are protected and aggressively defend you against the federal government.

A vast majority of federal crimes involve illegal activity that crosses state lines, involves the internet, or involves federal agencies such as federal banks or the postal service. Some examples of federal crimes are:

  • Drug trafficking
  • Money Laundering
  • Bank Fraud
  • Wire Fraud
  • Identity Theft
  • Mail Fraud
  • Possession of child pornography
  • Tax Evasion
  • Bank Robbery
  • Racketeering (RICO)
  • Tax Evasion

Client Reviews
I received a letter informing me that I was under investigation for fraud. Attorney Faigel reviewed that facts of the case and implemented a plan of action. As a result, the case was dropped and the investigation ended. He was fair and to the point in all of our discussions. His quick work saved me a lot of time, distress and money. I hired the right attorney. RF
I hired Attorney Faigel after another lawyer told me that there was nothing else he could do on my case and I was going to lose my license for 30 days. Attorney Faigel would not take no for an answer. He was somehow able to get some of the charges dismissed and I was able to keep my license. Without it, I would not have been able to work and would have lost a great deal. I would highly recommend Attorney Faigel. WB
I was involved in a very serious offense that, if convicted of, would have sent me to jail for the rest of my life. Attorney Faigel, through his diligent investigation and contacts with law enforcement, was able to keep me from being charged with a crime. I would recommend him to anyone. He is expensive, but worth every penny. JL
I hired Attorney Faigel for a very serious case. Even though he was expensive, he was well worth every dollar. He kept me informed every step of the way and never promised me anything that he could not deliver on. He saved my husband and our family. HB
