Experienced Federal Criminal Defense Lawyers
If you have been charged with a federal crime in Florida, it is important to consult with an attorney who has experience defending clients against federal criminal charges. The federal system is a world apart from the state system. The rules and procedures are different. The prosecutors have more resources at their disposal. The sentencing is less flexible. The stakes are much higher.
At Lindsey & Ferry, P.A., our attorneys have extensive experience working within the federal criminal justice system. We are led by Warren Lindsey, a board-certified defense lawyer with 37 years of experience defending clients against drug charges, white collar crimes, and other federal and state offenses.
Navigating The Federal Criminal Justice System
A lawyer could have a successful defense practice for decades without ever having to set foot in a federal court. When your freedom and future are on the line, however, you need a federal criminal defense attorney who understands the nuances of the system.
One of the key differences between state and federal criminal law is the sentencing guidelines of the federal system. Sentences for federal crimes are determined by a firm set of guidelines, and federal judges have far less discretion in imposing sentences. Your attorney must have knowledge of these guidelines to provide the most effective defense representation.
Another factor at play is the virtually limitless resources of the FBI, DEA and other federal agencies. In many cases, a federal criminal arrest is made after a lengthy investigation. In the state system, an arrest more often marks the beginning of the investigation.
While the federal system is formidable, you still have constitutional rights. You are still innocent until proven guilty. Our attorneys have extensive experience defending clients against federal criminal charges and are here to serve as your advisers and advocates for this critical legal matter.
