Harrisburg Federal Criminal Defense Attorney

Taking Your Federal Criminal Defense Seriously

The penalties for a federal conviction are usually harsher than for a state level offense. At the same time, just about any case can be charged federally — just as long as any element of the offense has moved through interstate commerce.

At Foreman & Caraciolo, we understand that matters of federal criminal defense are especially serious. We have the resources and dedication to take them seriously.

Federal Criminal Defense Attorney in Pennsylvania

We are admitted to practice in federal courts throughout Pennsylvania, including the Eastern District and the Middle District of Pennsylvania, the Third Circuit Court of Appeals and the United States Supreme Court. From our office in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, we serve clients in communities throughout Pennsylvania, including York, Carlisle, Lebanon and Lancaster.


Our attorneys handle a wide range of federal criminal defense:

  • Assault
  • Federal DUI on an army base
  • Prostitution
  • Weapons charges
  • Robbery

Many people who choose to work with public defenders or large law firms get a lawyer who is handling many, many cases at the same time. That lawyer may not have the time to work closely with you on your case. In fact, some people do not even meet their attorneys until they go to court.

This is not how we do things at Foreman & Caraciolo. Our Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, law firm offers personalized service where clients work directly with the lawyers who represent them.

Appeals and Post-Conviction Remedies

In the event that someone is convicted by a jury or makes a guilty plea, the government will conduct a pre-sentencing investigation to determine what type of punishment is appropriate. In these situations, it is vitally important to have an attorney advocate for you and make sure that the report does not have incorrect or misleading information that could cause the judge to give you a harsher sentence.

In addition, if there were issues at your trial dealing with evidence or procedure that may provide grounds for appeal, we can take your case to an appeals court and attempt to have your conviction reversed or we can pursue other remedies under Federal Code.
