At Kreisberg & Maitland, we are dedicated to getting involved early on so we can impact the outcome of your case.

If you were arrested for a federal offense, reach out to our firm at (212) 235-1525 for an aggressive defense in Bronx, Brooklyn, and surrounding areas.

Who Investigates Federal Crimes?

There are several different government agencies responsible for examining and investigating certain crimes. Even before you are arrested or charged, you have likely already been investigated for some time. These agencies include the FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation), the DEA (Drug Enforcement Agency), and the ATF (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives).

Federal agencies investigate a wide range of cases according to their agency, such as:

Federal vs. New York State Criminal Charges

If you are accused of committing a federal crime in New York, you will be tried in a New York federal court. Although violations of state law may seem severe, violations of federal law typically bring even more serious punishments including years or even decades in prison, hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines, and other lasting penalties.

Penalties are determined by a wide range of factors such as the severity of the law allegedly broken, whether there were victims directly affected, and more. Our goal is to use our knowledge of the law to successfully fight your case. In some instances we may even be able to move cases from federal to state court.
