Atlanta Federal Crime Defense Attorneys

Georgia Attorneys Taking on Complex Federal Crimes

Federal cases are complex, requiring a wide range of legal knowledge and skills. If you have been accused of a federal crime, it is extremely important that you work with an Atlanta federal criminal attorney who has experience with the federal criminal justice system. Attorneys Nicholas Lotito and Seth Kirschenbaum are both former federal prosecutors, each with 30+ years of legal experience. We have a deep understanding of the tactics used by prosecutors both in and out of the courtroom; as federal criminal defense attorneys, and we use this knowledge to protect the rights of people throughout the Atlanta metro area.

What are the 8 Types of Cases Heard in Federal Courts?

Federal courts usually hear the following cases:

  • the Constitution,
  • violations of federal laws,
  • controversies between states,
  • disputes between parties from different states,
  • suits by or against the federal government,
  • foreign governments and treaties,
  • admiralty and maritime laws, and
  • U.S. diplomats.
  • Ready to Handle Complex Federal Cases

Our law firm is prepared to defend our clients against a wide variety of federal charges, including:

Tax Fraud

We defend people and businesses accused of federal tax fraud. Both of our Atlanta criminal defense lawyers have more than 30 years of experience in the criminal justice system. We are well-qualified and experienced with tax fraud matters.

Securities Fraud

Charges of insider trading, investment fraud, and manipulation of stocks can end careers and have devastating consequences. At the law offices of Nicholas Lotito and Seth Kirschenbaum, our Federal crime attorneys offer aggressive defense to stockbrokers, investors, and other business professionals facing these charges. If you’ve been accused, you are facing very serious consequences. We will work closely with you to help protect your rights and freedom.

Working Against the Sentencing Guidelines

A conviction for a federal crime often involves a prison sentence. When you work with our firm, our attorneys will work hard to achieve the best results possible under the United States Sentencing Guidelines. These Guidelines were once mandatory but are now advisory. Our experienced Atlanta federal criminal defense lawyers know how to squeeze every benefit possible out of the highly complex federal sentencing system as it exists today.

If you are facing federal charges, get help from a former federal prosecutor.

    “Nick defended me with dedication, caring, and skillfulness - I will be eternally grateful”
    Thank You Nick, For Justice! The state of Georgia indicted me on two counts of Racketeering that I did not commit. Nick defended me with dedication, caring, and skillfulness in interacting with all parties involved. Against almost insurmountable odds, he was able to get my case dismissed. I will be eternally grateful for all he has done for me. I consider him a superb criminal defense attorney and also call him my friend!

    “very impressed”
    Good and Knowledgeable I was in a bad situation at one point in my life, the Federal Government brought criminal action against me and I knew i had to be accountable for my action. I was looking for a good lawyer who specialized in criminal lawyer, one who has professional experience in a court room and could give me a good advice on what I needed to do. I interviewed three lawyers and someone told me about Nicholas Lotito, so I meet with him and we talked for hours, I was very impressed with his honesty, I was convinced and had no doubts or uncertainty that he was the person I needed to represent me. At the end of the trial everything worked out good. So thank you Mr. Lotito for the good work you did.
