Federal Crimes

When you have been charged with a crime by the U.S. attorney’s office, the case will be prosecuted in the federal courts. You want a lawyer who has practiced in the federal criminal justice system, someone who knows and understands the unique procedural rules that apply, as well as the federal sentencing guidelines.

At the offices of Erik B. Jensen P.C., a Professional Corporation, our attorneys have protected the rights of criminal defendants in Pennsylvania and New Jersey since 1984, including people facing prosecution in federal court. We believe that everyone is entitled to a strong defense, based on who you are and what you need, not just what you can pay. When you hire us to defend you on a federal charge, we will be there at your side at every step of the process, making certain your constitutional rights are protected.

Experienced Defense of Federal Charges

We aggressively defend people facing prosecution in the federal courts in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, including people charged with:

  • Fraud. We handle the defense of a broad range federal fraud crimes, including mail fraud, wire fraud, bank fraud and insurance fraud. If you have been charged with obtaining money or property through false representations, we can help.
  • Kidnapping. We defend people charged with holding someone else against their will, or with illegally restricting their freedom.
  • Tax crimes, including tax evasion. We protect the rights of individuals charged with violating the Internal Revenue Code, from tax fraud to tax evasion. See our tax crimes page to learn more.
  • Drug offenses. We represent people charged with federal drug offenses, from possession to trafficking to importation, cultivation or manufacturing. We also handle drug conspiracy cases.
  • Immigration crimes. If you have been arrested for or charged with violating America’s immigration laws, we will fight for your rights.

When you hire us to defend you on a federal crimes charge, we will conduct a thorough investigation of the facts and circumstances involved in your case. We will confirm that there was probable cause for any search, seizure or arrest, and that you were properly advised of your rights before any interrogation or questioning. We will also examine how any evidence against you was gathered, to verify that your rights were not violated in the process. If there is evidence that police or prosecutors violated your constitutional rights, we will seek the exclusion of evidence and the dismissal of charges, if appropriate.
