Bergen County Federal Charges Lawyer

Providing Defense to Federal Charges in Illinois

If you have been charged with a federal crime, it is important to understand that many criminal defense lawyers do not have significant experience in federal cases. Federal courts have their own sentencing guidelines, rules of evidence, and procedures. If you have been charged with a federal crime in the state of New Jersey, our Bergen County federal charges lawyer at Law Offices of Joseph R. Donahue, LLC can help.

Our firm represents clients throughout central and northern New Jersey in a wide range of state and federal charges. We have extensive experience in federal cases and have achieved many significant results in favor of our clients.

Some of the federal charges we handle include:

  • Fraud
  • Drug charges
  • Bribery
  • Child pornography
  • Embezzlement
  • Weapons offenses
  • Mortgage fraud
  • Official misconduct

If you have been charged with a federal crime or are under investigation for a federal crime, we encourage you to contact us.

Our Trial-Tested Approach

We always strive to put our clients in the best position possible, so our immediate goal is to obtain a case dismissal or acquittal. If this cannot be done, we seek to minimize the consequences by all legal means possible, perhaps by pursuing a plea agreement, which could include alternate sentencing that improves the impact on our client’s record. Our Bergen County criminal defense attorney is a resolute advocate who never hesitates to take a case to trial if it is in the best interests of our client. No matter how complex your charges may be, we have the proven expertise and passion to help you achieve a positive outcome. Discover how we can help you today.
