A Federal Criminal Conviction will Devastate your Future – Act Quickly

Tully & Weiss Experienced Federal Criminal Defense Lawyers are Proactive

White collar crimes are non-violent crimes typically involving business enterprises or financial institutions and can include racketeering/RICO violations, bank fraud, Medicare fraud, mortgage fraud, public corruption, conspiracy, drug trafficking, marijuana crimes or Internet pornography, among other offenses. Because these crimes are normally Federal offenses, they can be prosecuted under state and/or federal court and penalties can be severe and life-altering.

Those convicted of federal crimes can face prison time, substantial fines, and a permanent criminal record. Cases often involve federal agent investigations and are prosecuted by the nation’s leading attorneys seeking enhanced sentencing and maximum penalties. Even after time is served, years of probation and a permanent criminal record can lead to difficulty gaining employment, housing, bank loans and State or Federal benefits.
