When you are charged with a federal crime, you can be sure that the prosecution has devoted significant resources to building a case against you. Whether it is exhaustive financial research, thorough electronic investigation or countless hours spent by law enforcement, you need to have an aggressive defender on your side.
I am Jason L. Russo, a defense attorney with 15-plus years of legal experience. Before I was a defense lawyer, I spent a significant amount of time as a prosecutor. My knowledge of both sides of the criminal justice system is a direct benefit to my clients.
Protecting You From A Federal Investigation
From my office in Bay Shore, New York, I am prepared to defend clients charged with numerous different federal crimes, including:
- Internet charges can center on sex crimes or pornography crimes. These are serious charges that could possibly result in sex offender status.
- Drug charges can involve possession, distribution, trafficking, manufacture, growth or cultivation.
- Robbery and other violent crimes can carry significant penalties based on the severity of the charge and your criminal history.
It is not uncommon for defense lawyers to only handle state cases rather than tackling federal cases. One key component is the complexity of the sentencing guidelines. With more than a decade of experience, I have a thorough understanding of how sentencing guidelines work and what mandatory minimums my clients are facing.
