Scottsdale Federal Crimes Defense Attorney

Defending Your Rights on the Federal Level

In general, if you are charged with a crime on the state level, you will be prosecuted in state court, and if convicted, you will face time in county jail or state prison. There are some crimes, however, which are illegal on both the state and federal level, and it is possible for you to be charged with a federal crime in addition to a state criminal charge. 

Being charged with a federal offense is a very different process, and you will need a criminal defense lawyer who is not only permitted to practice in federal courts, as Attorney Craig is, but also one who can match the prosecution conducting the investigation, which will likely have extensive resources, such as the FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation), CIA (Central Intelligence Agency), or DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration). Another difference between federal crimes and state crimes is the penalties. A federal conviction means that if you are sentenced to prison, it will be in a federal prison, and the fines are likely much more steep. 

Some of the most common types of federal crimes which the Law Offices of Randall J. Craig have defended are:

  • Bank fraud
  • Crimes committed on federal property
  • Certain crimes committed across state or country boundaries
  • Child pornography
  • Sex crimes committed against children
  • Hacking
  • Money laundering
  • Firearms trafficking

Attorney Craig is well-known among Arizona State and federal courts for his extensive knowledge of criminal law and aggressive defense of his clients' rights. He has been recognized and awarded by multiple organizations, and is completely dedicated to providing you with the best legal representation and legal counsel possible.

    I paid him $5,000 to do quick trial after firing my old lawyer. It only took him 3 days to get ready.

    “Randy can get anything done that he puts his heart to! He has a nice smile, honest and is very supportive, a rare find in a lawyer! I wish the best to you Randy & hope to see you have a huge law firm in the future, you deserve it!”
    This man has a "Heart of Gold" he was very honest and kind. He did everything he told me he would, the only BAD thing I can say is his investigator Judd Slivka is the worst, did not do his job right and did not call me as promised by Randy. If Randy was to get a "real" investigator he would really do much better. Randy is the best I have ever seen yet! As for phone calls he was there for me 8 out of 10 times, he was at all of our appointments, he is very professional and I would recommend him to anyone! Randy can get anything done that he puts his heart to! He has a nice smile, honest and is very supportive, a rare find in a lawyer! I wish the best to you Randy & hope to see you have a huge law firm in the future, you deserve it!

    “I truly believe you are the best lawyer around!”

    Dear Randall:

    I am sure you do not remember me, but you represented me in my case. I was a heroin addict and have not been clean for over 4 years. I don’t think I have ever properly thanked you. You really fought hard for me and thanks to you believing in me, I really have turned my life around. There is not a day that goes by I do not live with regret. However I really am working hard on that thing we call “forgiveness”. Thank you for everything. I truly believe you are the best lawyer around!

All of the waiting, wondering and worry has taken a toll over the last 16 months, but to finally get some relief this morning, well I/we can't express enough gratitude for your time and help. Know how grateful & thankful we are that Jim found you and that you were willing to take this on. Jake will make the most of this gracious second chance! Please take good care.
