Florida Federal Criminal Defense Lawyer

If you are under investigation for a federal offense or have been arrested on federal charges in Florida, your best protection is an aggressive criminal defense attorney who is experienced in handling federal cases.

There is a world of difference between the State and the Federal criminal justice systems. Just because an attorney practices in the State court system does NOT qualify them to practice in Federal court. The attorney must have a separate license to practice in the Federal courts. When interviewing potential attorneys, please ask about their Federal court experience before you make your decision. Prior experience in Federal courts is key! For over two decades, attorney Richard G. Canina has been licensed to practice in the Federal Court of the Middle District of Florida and has handled numerous Federal criminal cases.

If you have recently received ANY letter from ANY agency that indicates that the government "would like to speak with you" for ANY reason, you may call us at (321)-728-0989 immediately before you respond. Such letters are commonly sent in federal investigations. Any response to these letters can and will be used against you in a court of law. Even if you have done nothing wrong and wish to cooperate, please involve a Brevard County Federal criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible after receiving such a letter. You have a right to retain counsel at this critical stage!

Federal vs. State Criminal Charges

Federal criminal charges can be more serious than state criminal charges. There are two reasons for this. First, federal cases are often more complicated, time consuming, and labor-intensive. Second, Federal cases often involve harsher punishments for similar crimes charged in state court. The federal court system uses a different set of sentencing guidelines than the state court does. Federal sentencing guidelines are advisory, not mandatory. You need an attorney familiar with federal sentencing practices and procedures. Contact us today.

A Federal offense is often an offense that crosses state lines. There are a host of complex issues that may arise when a federal crime is charged. Also, there is usually a substantial amount of discovery (evidence) to evaluate and dissect. Our attorneys review every piece of discovery in your case and discuss it with our clients. Our client receive full copies of their discovery promptly.
