Los Angeles Federal Criminal Defense Lawyer
The Severity of a Federal Charge
Federal crimes are some of the most dangerous of all types of criminal accusations to the individual involved. The penalties in a conviction are higher and there is no possibility of parole in the federal court system, creating a real threat to your future if you have been accused of any federal crime. Most federal crimes are investigated by special agencies, such as the FBI, CIA, DEA, ATF and others. With the vast resources these entities have at their disposal, it is crucial to anyone charged with a federal crime to seek experienced and knowledgeable legal counsel immediately. A Los Angeles federal criminal defense attorney from Kaye, McLane & Bednarski, LLP provides the commitment and skill needed to fight federal crimes charges.
Our firm stands ready to defend you with unparalleled legal support against a variety of federal charges, no matter how many or how severe. If you have been charged with arson, we understand that you may be charged on a state and federal level and that the consequences you face will vary depending on the location and the damage caused.
White collar crime is being given increasingly greater attention in the media as of late. Whether you have been charged with an
securities fraud, and
tax evasion, they are all forms of white collar crime and they are all taken very seriously by our legal team. We also defend clients who have been charged with

RICO Act violation. In addition to the white collar crime of securities fraud, our legal team is experienced at defending clients charged with various other forms of
fraud. If you have been charged with

human trafficking and
kidnapping charges also face tough opposition. We can help you get through any and all of these charges as quickly and smoothly as possible. If you have been charged with
bank robbery, you may not have realized it is a federal crime, but banks are federally insured. If you are being charged with a
drug crime on a federal level, there is a chance you are being made an example of by the government's "war on drugs" and you absolutely should not have to suffer for the sake of public approval. We also represent clients who are charged with
conspiracy, such as drug conspiracy, conspiracy to commit bank robbery, and various other related crimes. We have an in depth knowledge of the legal process surrounding
