Ft. Lauderdale Federal Crimes Lawyer - About the Firm

Our Miami Federal Criminal Defense Attorneys and Broward County Federal Criminal Law Firm of Youngs and Associates only accepts a limited number of federal criminal defense matters in the United States as well as international criminal defense cases in Latin America and the Caribbean because our goal is to dedicate all the time necessary to each and every client we represent. Our clients are very important to us and we recognize that each and every one of the defendants accused of state or federal law violations, or international criminal defense case deserves our undivided attention. Our firm has over 75 years of combined legal experience in state and federal criminal law as well as international criminal defense law.

We represent both individuals and business defendants accused of federal crimes anywhere in the United States including Puerto Rico although most of our clients are charged with federal crimes in Florida and New York. Numerous cases have surfaced of accusations and federal charges filed in the last few years relating to assorted foreign sex tourism and child pornography cases where accused individuals were simply surfing the internet and were entrapped by law enforcement in chat rooms.  Many medical doctors are being arrested and charged with medicare fraud when others are using their names at clinics or are unaware of abuses of their billing personnel.  In addition, wire fraud cases are being filed that in many instances appear to have no merit.  Most of the defendants charged with these crimes have no criminal records.  Accusations destroy their careers and lives.  Many corporate officials are being accused of HAZMAT dumping and improper handling of toxic materials when they simply relied on corporate counsel for guidance. Licensed professionals are being charged with crimes based on an acuser's statements and minimal physical evidence.  Our firm can help individuals who believe they are going to be charged criminally or accused by their respective licensing boards of wrongdoing.  Early contact with our firm is extremely important to prevent accused individuals from making crucial mistakes and providing statements that can be used later by law enforcement or licensing boards.

We represent individuals accused of federal crimes throughout the State of Florida and not just in Miami and Ft. Lauderdale. We travel to represent clients accused of federal offenses in Key West, West Palm Beach, Ft. Myers and Ft. Pierce as well. In a limited number of serious state criminal cases we represent accused individuals in Florida, New York and Colorado.  Also, in cases of federal crime extradition cases we will meet clients in third countries such as Panama, the Dominican Republic or Colombia as well as countries throughout Latin America or the Caribbean.
