Federal Crimes

Not All Attorneys Can Appear in Federal Court

As you seek a Fairfax federal case lawyer, you will find that the field is quickly reduced among Fairfax County attorneys; not all of them are properly licensed to appear in federal court. You can save even more time in your search by simply contacting Michael A. Robinson, Esq., for a free consultation about your case. He has handled a wide variety of cases in his years as both a prosecutor and defense lawyer in the Commonwealth of Virginia. He understands that the federal courts are different than state ones, that federal prosecutors are different than others, and that federal judges see the law in a unique way.

Michael Robinson is an Experienced Federal Attorney

Attorney Michael Robinson has participated in cases involving federal agencies, such as the FBI, DEA and DHS, so whatever federal charges you are facing, he will know how to guide you and build your case. He will also know how to negotiate to possibly keep your case out of court and reach a settlement, or when it is most beneficial for you to proceed to court.

Reasons Your Criminal Case in Northern Virginia Could Be a Federal Case

You could be facing federal charges because you committed a crime on federal property, which can easily happen in Fairfax County because of the numerous federal agencies and buildings in the area. Also, crimes committed in national parks or on military property can result in different charges than you would normally face in Fairfax County. Whether you got a DUI on the grounds of Fort Belvoir or trespassed in Great Falls Park, a competent Virginia criminal defense lawyer who is licensed to practice in federal court can come to your assistance. Whether you have been accused of a property crime on Manassas National Battlefield Park or Defense Health Headquarters, a solid Fairfax criminal defense attorney can help. Other crimes that bring federal case charges include vandalism, property crimes, traffic offenses, and breaking and entering on federal property. More serious federal charges can result from crimes such as money laundering and wire and mail fraud, gang crimes and forgery.

Have a Federal Charge?

You will need to contact a Virginia criminal defense attorney who is skilled in interpreting the findings of computer forensic experts or accounting authorities. In other words, you should engage an experienced Fairfax lawyer for federal cases such as Attorney Michael Robinson. He has helped many clients over the years to face and defeat federal charges against them. In many cases, the charges were reduced or dismissed, while others led to a more favorable plea bargain, verdict or sentence.

Attorney Michael A. Robinson will patiently discuss your case with you and then give you an honest assessment of your legal status and the probability of victory in your case.

Whether or not you think it shouldn’t matter where you are charged with speeding, the fact is it is a different case if you do so on federal property. You’re going to need a skilled Virginia criminal defense lawyer to take on Uncle Sam, and you know full well that your federal security clearances can be severely affected if you are convicted of your alleged crime. Hire a lawyer that understands the importance of clearances and has represented many government employees and members of the military against federal charges.
