Federal Criminal Charges Require Experienced Legal Defense

If you face federal criminal charges, it is important to understand the serious situation you are in. Prosecution guidelines in federal cases are established by the U.S. Attorney in each federal judicial district and by laws established by Congress. Federal prosecutors are typically more zealous and penalties are certainly more severe than most crimes prosecuted in state courts.

This is not the time to place your faith and your future in the hands of an inexperienced criminal defense lawyer. At Bussa Law in Fergus Falls, we have a wealth of experience defending cases in state and federal criminal courts.

Attorney Anthony Bussa understands the assertive prosecution strategies one encounters in federal courts. He is highly skilled at building strong legal defense arguments and presenting them in court if necessary.

Your Long-Term Future Is At Stake

Federal charges cover a wide range of criminal acts, including:

  • Drug trafficking
  • Conspiracy to commit a drug crime
  • Weapons crimes
  • Child pornography
  • Kidnapping
  • Armed robbery
  • Embezzlement and other white collar crimes
  • Credit card fraud
  • Tax evasion

In addition to a lengthy federal prison sentence, conviction of a federal crime will almost certainly negatively impact your career. If you are in the U.S. on an immigration visa, a conviction could result in your deportation. You may also be prevented from owning firearms.

Prompt Action Is Important

It is a good idea to speak with our office as soon as you become aware that you are being investigated for a crime — even if you have not been arrested and charged. Do not speak with law enforcement authorities until you enlist a knowledgeable defense attorney's services. We offer a free consultation in which we can review the facts of your case and recommend an effective course of action. Call 218-303-5497 or use our online contact form to schedule a meeting.
