Florida Federal Criminal Defense Lawyers

If you are facing federal prosecution, you are about to do battle against the most powerful government on the planet. In federal court, the rules and the stakes are different. The nearly unlimited resources of the U.S. government, the harsh minimum penalties and the confusing federal sentencing guidelines provide a forum in which an unwary, inexperienced or ill-prepared attorney has little chance of success.

At Aiken, O'Halloran and Banyai in southwest Florida, we recognize the severity of conviction on a federal offense or white collar crime. Even while federal prosecutors are building their case against you, we can begin building your federal criminal defense. Our in-house criminal investigation team, which is composed of former law enforcement officers, aids our legal team in exploring every detail and defense option applicable in your case.

If you need experienced Florida federal criminal defense, contact us 24 hours a day, seven days a week by calling any of our three locations — Fort Myers, Punta Gorda or Sarasota. Se habla español.

Federal Criminal Defense Attorneys Are Not All 'Created Equal'

Not all criminal lawyers are qualified — or admitted — to practice in U.S. district courts or the federal courts of appeal. Attorneys Peter Aiken and Sean O'Halloran defend the rights of the accused in federal courts in detention or bond hearings.

If you have been charged with tax evasion, money laundering, mortgage fraud, embezzlement or another white collar crime, contact us. Mr. Aiken has both the experience and technical expertise to understand even the most complicated paper case. In addition to serving as a federal prosecutor, he worked as a forensic accountant and as a special agent with the IRS.

Mr. Aiken and Mr. O'Halloran are prepared to lead our legal team in federal criminal defense cases involving:

  • Mortgage fraud, mail fraud, wire fraud, bank fraud, securities fraud and health care fraud
  • Racketeering and labor violations
  • Conspiracy
  • Extortion and bribery
  • Tax crimes
  • Computer crimes
  • Drug crimes: trafficking, importation, distribution, sale, grow houses
  • Customs violations/smuggling
  • Gambling
  • Bank robbery
  • Firearms violations
