Federal Criminal Charges

If you have been charged with a federal crime, you are facing a serious charge with serious penalties. Federal prosecutors have the full force of the federal government at their backs; you need someone equally experienced working on your defense.

At Bird & Van Dyke, we will fight for your freedom and your future. From our offices in Stockton and Tracy, we provide aggressive federal criminal defense to clients throughout the Central Valley and Northern California.

Understanding Federal Charges

California and the federal government criminalize much of the same activity. However, when the federal government steps in and charges you with a crime, the consequences of a conviction are much more serious.

The federal criminal justice system is strict. Penalties are much harsher. If convicted of a federal crime, you face long mandatory minimum sentences and large fines. Unlike state court, federal prisons do not offer the same options regarding early release. Those convicted of a federal crime are more likely to serve every day of their sentence.
