Aggressive Defense in the Face of Serious Criminal Charges

The stakes can be very high in a federal criminal case. Federal prosecutors usually only take on serious cases in which the evidence is stacked against the defendant, presenting a very substantial challenge for the accused. If you find out that you are under investigation for a federal crime, you should contact a skilled defense attorney as soon as possible.

At The Law Offices of Wilson Antonio LaFaurie, our Brooklyn federal criminal defense attorney offers aggressive legal representation for clients facing serious charges. From our law office in Brooklyn, we defend clients in both state and federal courts throughout the New York City area.

Consequences of a Federal Crime Conviction

A conviction for a federal crime can have serious short-term and long-term consequences. A conviction prevents you from obtaining a professional license or working in certain professions. It can also be a job killer, as employers routinely conduct background checks of prospective employees.

One of the most serious consequences of a federal conviction is the potential for a significant jail sentence, even as a first-time offender. Federal law calls for a number of heavy mandatory minimum sentences, particularly for those convicted of drug crimes. These minimum sentences can lead to very long prison terms. Since there is no parole in the federal court system, you could face several years in a federal penitentiary for a crime that would otherwise be eligible for a provisional release in our state justice system.

Representation in Civil Court

Beyond criminal cases, we also represent those who have been wronged in a federal civil rights abuse. These cases—which include instances of police misconduct, use of excessive force, and false arrest—can be very difficult to pursue without skilled legal representation. We have extensive experience with civil rights cases; if you have been wronged by police or state authorities, we can help you seek justice.
