Federal Criminal Defense


Knowledgeable Arizona lawyer represents defendants in felony cases

If you are accused of a crime that violates a statute passed by Congress, you will be tried in federal court. If you have been charged with a federal crime, you need an experienced criminal defense attorney on your side. David Eisenberg, PLC fights to defend the rights of clients. I have built my reputation on getting results. I am intimately familiar with all facets of the federal criminal justice system, including the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure and the Federal Rules of Evidence. I have the knowledge and skill to make sure you understand your legal options and to guide you through the legal process.

Federal prosecution requires an attorney with federal defense experience

There are many ways to end up in federal court. If you are accused of breaking a federal law, you will be tried at the federal level. Crimes involving specific federal agency oversight, such as the Internal Revenue Service (e. g., tax evasion, money laundering), Securities and Exchange Commission (e.g., securities fraud), U.S. Treasury (e.g., counterfeiting), Environmental Protection Agency (e.g., toxic waste dumping), Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (e.g., gun-running), Drug Enforcement Agency (e.g., drug smuggling), Secret Service (e. g., counterfeiting) and Customs and Border Protection (e. g., import/export smuggling) are federal crimes. I help clients defend against even the most serious charges. Other crimes, such as fraud, identity theft, public corruption, racketeering (i.e., RICO) and embezzlement and theft are typically handled by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. I have many years of experience in both presenting cases investigated by these law enforcement agencies as a prosecutor and in defending them, as I do now, in private practice.

Additional federal crimes

Defendants are also charged federally when they are accused of crimes that cross state lines, such as moving a kidnapping victim from one state to another. I understand federal criminal law and all aspects of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure and Federal Rules of Evidence, including:

  • Federal Bail Reform Act
  • Motions to compel discovery
  • Motions to sever cases and defendants
  • Motions to suppress evidence
  • Federal Sentencing Guidelines

Don’t give the federal prosecutor an added advantage. No matter what obstacle has been placed in your way, rest assured that I and my staff will strive diligently to help you overcome it and work tenaciously to attain the best possible result for you.

Going the extra mile to defend your freedom

Nothing is more important to me than your freedom. I make use of all available evidence and procedural tools to ensure that you get the justice you deserve. Through meticulous preparation and firm attention to detail, my efforts are always focused on achieving that goal. I personally speak with witnesses, comb through police reports, examine business records and examine the alleged crime scene, if necessary. I also bring in experts who challenge the prosecution and help us prepare trial strategy.
