Federal Crimes Criminal Attorney, Pittsburgh, PA
In most criminal cases, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania will dictate the law. However, some crimes are also tried under the jurisdiction of the U.S. Federal government. The U.S. Federal government has the ability to make arrests and claim jurisdiction in some cases.
Convictions for federal crimes often carry harsh penalties with prison sentences that far exceed those of state or local charges. It’s therefore imperative to carefully select a criminal attorney who routinely handles cases in federal courts.
Some of the most common types of crimes that are tried by the U.S. Federal government include:
- Drug Crimes
- White Collar Crimes
- RICO Violations
- Insurance Fraud
- Tax Fraud
- Tax Evasion
- Forgery / Falsifying Documents
- Certain types of Cyber Crimes
- Certain types of Internet Sex Crimes
- Internet Child Pornography
- Gun Violations
- Human Trafficking / Sex Trafficking
- Crimes Committed on Federal Property
- Bank Robbery
- Money Laundering
Offenses that go from a state to a federal charge include:

- Any offense in violation of a federal statute or a regulation of the executive branch.
- Offenses against federal agencies, like bomb threats and bank robberies.
- Any fraud offense that uses the U.S. Post Office, such as mail fraud.
