What makes federal crimes different than state crimes?

To put it simply, state crimes break state laws. That means if you commit a crime that violates Florida law, you will be accused of a state crime. On the other hand, federal crimes break federal legal code, carrying much heavier consequences. While these offenses can overlap in some cases, federal prosecution will usually take over. Ranging from mail fraud to drug trafficking, any offense prosecuted at the federal level will bring more serious penalties under the federal guidelines. The guidelines include specific rules and a point system that are intended to give federal judges a level playing field for sentencing offenders.

The guidelines for federal sentencing take the following into consideration:

  • What type of offense was committed
  • How the offense was committed
  • The offender’s previous criminal history or background

The point system “awards” points to each of these categories, allowing a judge to determine how each area impacted the crime. If a defendant is given the maximum 43 points, they will receive a life sentence. Understanding how your offense will be prosecuted is crucial, as you need to be prepared to defend your case against even the toughest accusations and harshest penalties.

Words cannot describe the outstanding jobMr. Gorman did on my husband’s case. The case was not simple or easy, it was just filled with terrible circumstances. An event that could have ruined the lives of our family for years to come. He somehow was able to get some extremely serious charges reduced significantly.....the outcome was far better than we were ever expecting or hoping for. If he at times cannot get back to you right away, it is because he is working his magic. We will never forget him and will forever be thankful to him.read more

Mr. Gorman is nothing short of exceptional. I went to Jeff as a second opinion as I didn't feel my lawyer had my best interest at heart. Upon consultation, I immediately hired Jeff. He was professional, precise, and extremely knowledgeable of all aspects of law. He is nothing short a miracle. Needless to say, I received no jail (facing up to 30 years). Mr. Gorman and staff always kept me informed and fought for me. I would highly recommend him. It doesn't get any better than him.read more

Mr. Gorman is not only a great attorney by in my book, he’s a magician. He defended me on a “VERY SERIOUS” case with multiple charges (I will not mentioned here). From a 25 year sentence in which 17 would had been minimum mandatory, he managed to have serious charges dropped/abandone and was able to get me a deal that I was able to do at home. I hired him on a VOP (Violation Of Probation) for the same case and he was able to have the court reinstate my probation as we had proof that I in fact did not violate probation. Lastly, I hired him once again on an accident case in which I got injured and his attorney, Erika was able to get top dollar for such. I could go on with positive feedback. Overall, I’m 100% satisfied from day one. I won’t call any other attorney as he has proven to work for you every step of the way.read more

I retained Mr. Jeff Gorman's for a criminal matter in St Lucie County. When we first met he listened to what I said, never took notes and was very casual. I was very confident in his ability from the first few moments we met.I have a long criminal history, the best offer the States Attorney would give was 3 years prison after Jeff Gorman got them down from the maximum sentence of 5 years.Jeff suggested we try to fight the case rather than accepting such a lengthy prison sentence. His team of paralegals spent over a year deferring my court appearance and worked on a motion to suppress the evidence.I took a plea at the hearing of the motion almost 2 years after my arrest. I was given two years probation, no classes, no tests and an immediate driver's license reinstatement. After only 5 months on probation my probation was changed to administrative probation as I have no restrictions ordered by the court except supervision. Now I call in once a month, pay the court and probation fees and I'm going for early termination in just 7 more months. This was my 6th time being charged with the same felony, with 3 trips to prison on my record.Jeff and his staff are the best I've ever worked with, he is honest, straight forward, no punches pulled and the best attorney I know. I would recommend him to anyone facing criminal chargesRP Vero Beach FLread more

Mr. Gorman was a strong advocate on my behalf. He was professional and thorough and best of all, he got me results beyond my expectations. Also, during the whole process, he kept me appraised of the details of the case and all the options I had at each step of the process and suggested legal recommendations according to the development of the case. I would highly recommend his services in any legal matterread more
