The Miami Federal Criminal Lawyers Office represents defendants accused of crimes before federal courts in Miami, Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach, Fort Myers and Key West, Florida as well as New York and Colorado. Our Miami, FL Federal Crime Lawyers will advise you that Federal prosecution cases are much more complicated than state criminal cases for many reasons. In federal investigations and prosecutions the federal government has vast resources and prepare the cases much more thoroughly than in state court.

Federal prosecutors normally have fewer cases and have many more legal assistants than state court prosecutors. In federal cases numerous charges are frequently added on to the predicate criminal violation to assure a successful conclusion for federal prosecutors. The penalties in federal cases can be very complex where an accused could be facing numerous charges with a potential sentence of many years in prison.

Michael Youngs, our senior partner, has actually worked federal cases investigating and prosecuting them for 25 years. He was named as one of the top 10 criminal defense attorneys in the State of Florida by the National Academy of Criminal Defense Attorneys. We understand the planning by federal prosecutors when pursuing defendants because in many investigations during our prior federal government experience our attorneys handled the cases in the same way they are preparing the case against our client who is now being accused. Our attorneys and investigators can often more easily understand what the federal investigators have done on the case and where it could be heading since we have the experience as former investigators and prosecutors in the federal system. Please note that we now also have new offices in West Palm Beach, Ft. Myers and Key West, Florida.


During the last 23 years in private practice, Michael Youngs and our firm has built a reputation for defending federal cases due to our experience relating to both federal government tactics combined with our aggressive defense plan where we seek the very best outcome for our clients.
