Federal Cases


Our attorneys here at Alcock and Associates have handled several hundreds of federal cases throughout the years and we completely comprehend how the system works. One must keep in mind that every Federal Case is different and it depends on the facts of the situation and the case. Furthermore, it is important to know that federal cases move substantially faster compared to other criminal cases. If you or a loved one are facing federal charges, please do not hesitate to contact us so that we can look into your case completely free.

Below is a brief list of federal charges we have successfully handled in Phoenix and Tucson, Arizona:

  • Drug Conspiracy Offenses
  • Weapons Offenses
  • Alien Smuggling
  • White Collar Crimes
  • Drug Possession


Federal crimes are usually illegal under both federal and state law, but the government defers to the states in most cases. The federal government usually becomes involved in cases when there is an interstate element to the offenses because it involves more than one state, or when the offense happens on federal property.


An interstate element refers to any part of the alleged crime that connects two or more states. There are several examples, including mail and wire fraud, drug trafficking across state lines, and kidnapping if the victim is moved from one state to another.

Furthermore, a crime can also fall under federal jurisdiction if it is committed on federal property. Federal property can be a location such as a national park, military installation, or the border of the United States.

All illegal entries and immigration crimes are considered federal offenses.


As a general rule, the penalties for federal crimes are harsher than those at the state level. For instance, drug offenses that are prosecuted at the federal level have mandatory minimum prison sentences. An individual that is convicted of a federal crime will be sentenced to a federal prison, rather than a state prison.

Here at Alcock and Associates our talented team of dedicated attorneys have had the opportunity to handle all types of federal criminal cases.

I never have been in any trouble but sometimes unfortunate things in life happen and I needed a lawyer ASAP. They worked as a team and explained everything to me step by step and in a way that I was able to understand. They even offered affordable payment options which helped out a lot.

My husband sat in jail for 3 months before we got him out with no bond. Weeks later the case was dismissed. His lawyer Joe was beyond helpful and I can honestly say it was the best money I ever spend.
