Federal Criminal Defense Lawyer in Pennsylvania

Harrisburg Defense Lawyers Represent Clients throughout the State

If you're under investigation or indictment on federal criminal charges, you'll benefit from the advice of defense attorneys who have extensive experience with and knowledge about the many important differences between federal law and practice and Pennsylvania law and practice. The investigations, charging practices, court procedures and sentencing scheme are all different. Some of the biggest differences concern the severity of the sentences, the penalties for late plea negotiations, the complexity of the sentencing guidelines and the application and use of mandatories — that exist in the federal system.

Most importantly, the penalties in federal criminal cases are severe and, in many cases, much more severe than the penalties in state criminal cases. Also, the law and procedure involved in federal criminal cases are much more complex than many state criminal cases. If you are charged with or being investigated for a federal criminal offense, you are strongly encouraged to retain a criminal defense attorney with extensive experience in federal criminal defense. There are only a few criminal defense attorneys in Central Pennsylvania who have extensive experience practicing in federal criminal cases. Because the consequences in federal criminal case are so severe, make sure your attorney has solid experience practicing in federal criminal defense. When confronted with federal criminal charges, you cannot afford to make a mistake in your choice of attorney.


Call (717) 775-7195 for Advice About Federal Criminal Defense

Contact Scaringi Law, for a consultation about your defense options if you're the target of a federal criminal investigation. With offices in Harrisburg, Carlisle, Newport, York and Lancaster we're convenient to clients whose cases are handled out of the U.S. Attorney's Office in Harrisburg, or whose cases are pending in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania. We also represent clients in federal courts throughout the state.

In some cases, at least, especially those involving such white collar crimes as fraud or campaign finance violations, you'll probably become aware of a federal investigation before actual indictment. We urge you to engage counsel as soon as possible before the grand jury defines the charges you'll be facing. Your opportunities for resolving a federal case on favorable terms tend to be much better before the prosecution locks into a specific set of charges against you.

We advise clients facing actual or potential exposure to punishment on a wide variety of federal charges:

  • Fraud of many kinds: bank fraud, health care fraud, mortgage fraud, securities fraud
  • Tax offenses, including tax evasion or tax fraud
  • Drug crimes, including importation, trafficking, conspiracy or drug kingpin charges
  • RICO offenses
  • Money laundering
  • Public corruption, including mail fraud or wire fraud
  • Campaign finance or election violations
  • Internet sex offenses, especially those involving child pornography
  • Federal weapons offenses

In some situations, we'll concentrate on keeping a borderline charge in state court by convincing the local authorities not to refer the case to the U.S. Attorney's Office. In other cases, we'll use our experience with federal criminal defense to achieve the best possible result available under the facts and the law.
