What Qualifies as a Federal Crime?
A federal crime is a violation of a criminal law or statute developed by the federal government. Some offenses can violate both federal and state laws/statutes. The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) decides whether a case is prosecuted as a federal crime.
Some examples of federal crimes in the U.S. are:
- Federal white-collar crimes: Many white-collar crimes are federal offenses. Examples include tax evasion, insider trading, security fraud, computer fraud, and credit card fraud.
- Federal weapons crimes: In the U.S., there are many violent crimes each year. Many of these crimes involve guns, so the government strongly enforces firearm and weapon statutes. Some common federal weapons crimes are commercial robbery, possession of a prohibited firearm, and possession by a prohibited individual.
- Federal drug crimes: Drug crimes involve illegal drugs and can be prosecuted as federal crimes. Common examples include exporting illegal drugs, importing illegal drugs, and trafficking illegal drugs.
There are other federal crimes, such as kidnapping or possession of child pornography. If you’re being accused of or charged with any federal crime, you should consider speaking with a federal crimes lawyer immediately.

What Does a Federal Criminal Defense Lawyer From McKenzie Law Firm, P.C. Do?
We have one goal: to get the best possible outcome for your case. That means different things for different people. For instance, we may complete a trial and secure a “not guilty” verdict from the judge and jury. If a “not guilty” verdict isn’t possible, we may aim for a reduced charge or accept a plea deal.
Yet, in each case we manage, our team will:
- Gather evidence. We need supporting information to convince the judge and jury that you’re not guilty. Supporting evidence in your case could include the police report, any testimony you gave, witness statements, and camera footage.
- Identify inconsistencies. The prosecution might know that it has shaky evidence but may present it anyway. For instance, it might call on a witness who provides inconsistent testimony with the facts of the case. We could use this to assert your innocence.
- Determine whether your arrest was properly conducted. The police can’t just search your home or arrest you for no reason. They must have a warrant or probable cause. If they didn’t have either of these things, we could move to have some evidence dismissed or assert that your rights were violated.
- Communicate with the involved parties for you. When you partner with our criminal defense team, the other parties are not allowed to contact you without us being present. This means the police cannot question you alone if you’ve already partnered with a lawyer.
- Assert that you had an alibi. In high-stakes cases, some prosecutors will do anything possible to secure a conviction––even alleging that you had the opportunity to commit a crime. One way we might prove otherwise is by confirming your alibi, asserting that you were not at the crime scene or could not possibly have broken the law.
We strive to give each defendant the best and fairest trial possible. As such, you can expect us to render client-specific services throughout your case. We may consult with field experts, review state and federal law, and use forensics to assert your innocence.
