Federal Counterfeiting Lawyer in Los Angeles
Counterfeiting money is a federal offense which may be punished by up to
15 years in prison, along with heavy fines. If you are currently under
investigation for counterfeiting or are facing criminal charges involving this federal
crime, consult a
Los Angeles federal criminal defense attorney at our firm as soon as possible.
Okabe & Haushalter is a Los Angeles criminal defense law firm whose
attorneys have experience in defending clients facing charges in state
and federal courts. Federal court presents a unique challenge to a defense
lawyer in that federal agencies are involved (such as the FBI) and federal
prosecutors are often highly-trained and experienced. Federal prosecutors
may pick and choose the cases they work on in order to choose those which
involve the most amount of evidence against a defendant, or which they
have the most experience in.
Additionally, federal court proceedings are different than state proceedings
and a defendant may face harsher penalties. All in all, a defense lawyer
will need to be experienced specifically with defending federal criminal
charges in order to be the most effective in defending counterfeiting charges.

attorney as soon as possible.
