Queens Federal Criminal Defense Attorneys

If you have been charged with a federal crime, it is important to understand exactly what consequences you may be facing. Federal charges are often more serious than state charges, and federal sentencing guidelines apply when an individual is convicted.

The most important decision you may face if you have been charged with a federal crime is choosing an attorney. Not all criminal defense attorneys have experience handling cases in federal court. When your rights and freedom are on the line, you should seek representation from a lawyer who understands exactly the situation you are in.

Federal charges may be filed when an individual has violated a federal law contained in the U.S. Criminal Code. Queens federal criminal defense lawyers Todd D. Greenberg and Dominic L. Addabbo have decades of collective experience handling complex criminal defense cases including:

  • Federal drug crimes
  • Federal white collar crimes
  • Mail fraud
  • Wire fraud
  • Tax crimes
  • Internet crimes
  • Child pornography
  • Gun law violations
  • Terrorism

On both the federal and state level, attorney Todd Greenberg has been involved in narcotics defense for more than 30 years. In the defense of a defendant in a major crack conspiracy case prosecuted in Federal District Court, Southern District of New York, Federal Court Judge Peter K. Leisure called Mr. Greenberg’s closing argument in USA v. Valdez, 90-cr-890-4, “… a high-caliber summation by an extremely capable lawyer.” Recently, Mr. Greenberg was able to obtain a significant sentence reduction in a federal drug case using the most current legal argument regarding the sentencing disparity between a person selling crack cocaine and a person selling powder cocaine. By being up to date on events in the United States Senate regarding hearings on crime and drugs, we were able to bring the most current legal argument to the sentencing judge, which resulted in a substantially reduced jail sentence.

Representation During Investigation

Our firm also represents individuals who believe they may be a target of a federal investigation. Indeed, the best time to start defending against federal charges is before charges have actually been filed — while the case is being investigated. There are steps we can take at this critical time to protect your rights and start building a defense if you end up being charged with a federal crime.
