Baton Rouge Federal Criminal Defense Lawyers

There are state laws, which are established by each individual state, and there are federal laws, which are established by the U.S. government. When a federal law is broken, it is considered a case for federal court. Federal criminal charges can have a lasting impact on your life.

If You Are Convicted

If you are convicted of a federal crime, you may be facing serious consequences, such as incarceration in a federal prison.

A federal crime conviction also goes on your permanent criminal record and is most likely unable to be expunged in the future.
