State Crimes vs Federal Crimes
Get effective representation for state or federal charges from Alejo Lugo
Depending on what type of criminal code violation you are accused of, you could find yourself facing charges in state or federal court. Sometimes, matters start out in the state system and then end up in the federal system. But this doesn’t mean you need to have two different legal teams on call. At The Law Offices of Alejo Lugo, we can provide the aggressive and effective defense you need in state or federal court.
Types of Federal Crimes
The US criminal code covers many of the same crimes as the California criminal code. Crimes against government entities or property will typically end up in federal court, as will certain serious crimes committed on reservation lands. After more than 15 years of experience in criminal law, Attorney Lugo is well equipped to defend against many different kinds of common federal offenses such as:
- Tax crimes
- Drug crimes
- Bank fraud
- Social Security fraud
- Mail fraud
- Credit card fraud
You Need an Experienced Attorney
The assistance of a skilled attorney who has handled cases in both state and federal court is essential for securing the best possible outcome in your specific case. If you are facing state charges, you need an attorney who is a fixture at the local courts and knows the DAs and prosecutors, as this will position them to predict how a given case will be handled and negotiate most effectively for dismissals, reductions of charges, and plea deals. If you are facing federal charges, you need an attorney who not only understands the nuances of federal criminal statutes, but is also familiar with the specific steps and procedures involved in a federal case.
At The Law Offices of Alejo Lugo & Associates, we can provide the aggressive and knowledgeable representation you need no matter where your case takes us. After 15+ years defending clients, Attorney Lugo knows our local county court system in detail. He is licensed to appear in federal court and he understands the unique priorities of state and federal prosecutors.
