Federal Crimes

Though most criminal cases are filed in Florida in state court and prosecuted by city or state attorneys, some cases are filed in the United States federal courts and prosecuted by the United States Department of Justice. This makes it that much more important to have an experienced federal crimes lawyer in Florida. At Lowry Legal, we have the experience needed as well as the skills and knowledge of federal crimes law to represent anyone facing federal criminal conviction.

Understanding Federal Crimes

A federal crime is defined as an offense against the United States that is in violation of any U.S. federal law and is specifically investigated by a government agency. A federal crimes lawyer such as one from Lowry Legal represents clients in Fort Lauderdale in cases such as:

  • Mail Fraud
  • Drug Crimes
  • Weapons Charges
  • Tax Evasion
  • Mortgage Fraud
  • Wire Fraud
  • Extortion
  • Money Laundering
  • Bank Fraud
  • Medicare Fraud
  • Counterfeiting

Many criminal cases are prosecuted under both local and state laws, and certain crimes may be deemed federal offenses. Federal offenses are generally more serious than any crime that is prosecuted in a state court and the agencies enforcing these laws have more resources than any local or state agency in Florida.

Penalties for Federal Convictions in Florida

There are various aspects of a federal case that factor into the sentencing guidelines. It’s important to work with a knowledgeable attorney who can decide if the guidelines that apply to your case are advisory or you are at risk of facing minimum mandatory sentencing for your charges. Regardless of someone’s criminal past or lack thereof, there are some mandatory minimums set in place for crimes such as drug possession, piracy, and child pornography. In serious felony cases, if an offender has two or more previous violent felony convictions or a combination of one or more prior serious ones and a drug conviction, they are subject to mandatory sentencing for their federal criminal charges. We can provide more details related to your case in Fort Lauderdale after an initial consultation with one of our expert federal crimes lawyers.

Attorney Mark Lowry is an exceptional criminal defense lawyer.

He is very organized and professional in appearance and workplace. We are very pleased with the way he handled our case from start to finish. Mike
I hired Mark because I was pulled over without a license, no insurance and and expired registration. I did not have any of these due to a past DUI, funds and procrastinating. I was especially nervous about this situation because the arresting officer stated in the police report that I tried to evade them. Joe
