About Joffe Law, P.A.
Federal crimes are prosecuted in a different court system and typically carry stricter sentences. People who are convicted of a federal drug charge may be subjected to mandatory minimum sentencing. White collar crime sentences often include heavy fines and restitution. Time in federal prison is also possible. Federal sex crimes are among the most heinous offenses. Therefore, a person who is accused of a federal sex offense may suffer lasting consequences even if the charges are dismissed. When your freedom, financial and professional future, and reputation are on the line, you need an experienced Miami federal defense lawyer who wins consistently. David Joffe has handled more than 1,200 federal criminal cases to date. Joffe Law treats each client with dignity and provides legal counsel and representation to achieve the best outcome possible.

Fraud defense lawyer
There are several types of fraud cases that are charged as federal crimes. These offenses involve financial schemes that utilize deception or misrepresentation for the fraudster’s benefit. Some examples of federal fraud crimes are:
- health care fraud
- mail and wire fraud
- Securities fraud
- tax fraud
White collar crimes defense in Miami
Beyond defending accused parties in federal fraud cases, we provide legal defense in all white collar crimes cases. These crimes are generally non-violent in nature; however, a conviction may result in a federal prison sentence and the defendant being ordered to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines and restitution. Corporate white crime offenders may be ordered to pay millions. We represent individuals and businesses in federal white collar crimes cases.
Miami Federal Drug Trafficking Lawyer
Federal drug charges can have much more dire consequences than state charges. Federal judges are ordered by law to follow mandatory minimum sentencing guidelines in drug cases. However, there are exceptions that permit a judge to deviate from mandatory minimum sentencing. Some exceptions are:
- if the defendant has no prior criminal history
- if the defendant has cooperated with law enforcement and federal prosecution
- if the defendant did not supervise, organize, manage, or act as the leader of the criminal activity
- if the defendant did not possess a firearm or other dangerous weapon
- if the defendant is not part of a criminal organization or enterprise
We will evaluate your case and determine all the ways we can help you potentially avoid conviction or mandatory minimum sentencing, depending on your individual circumstances. Joffe Law is highly experienced in representing individuals in Miami federal drug cases.
Federal Sex Crimes Lawyer
A sex crimes accusation can be especially devastating. If you are under investigation for a federal child pornography charge, human trafficking, or aggravated sexual assault, now is the time to act. We can help falsely accused individuals protect their privacy and reputation during the investigative process.
