Offenses on Federal Land Results in Federal Criminal Charges

Many people do not realize that crimes of any kind committed on federal land may result in federal criminal charges. For residents and visitors to Arizona, that means if you are stopped for DUI at the Hoover Dam or arrested for drug charges at Lake Havasu or in the Grand Canyon National Park, you need a criminal defense attorney who knows the federal system.

Many lawyers are experienced at handling cases in state court.  However, if charges are brought in federal court it is imperative that you have an attorney that is familiar with federal laws, the rules of evidence, as well as the Federal Sentencing Act and the Federal Sentencing Guidelines.  Our Arizona Law Firm has handled numerous federal prosecutions. In each case, we make every effort to prevent or mitigate federal charges being investigated and we have significant experience negotiating with federal prosecutors.  Call Us Today for a Free Consultation.

Understanding Federal Criminal Charges
The federal sentencing system can be complicated. In 1984, Congress passed the Federal Sentencing Act.  The Act provides a set of formulas resulting in sentencing guidelines for the United States District Courts to use when sentencing defendants who have either pled guilty or have been found guilty at trial.
