Greenwich/Stamford Federal Criminal Defense Lawyer
If you are facing any kind of federal charges, you may find yourself with aggressive prosecution and the chance of a harsh sentence if you are convicted. Anyone convicted in a federal court can expect that they will serve at least 85 percent of their sentence or more. These are very serious charges, and they can carry penalties that are life-changing.
Plenty of Connecticut lawyers who handle criminal defense will say they have defended clients like you. But very few of them can say they have actually been in your shoes.
I am criminal defense attorney Mickey Sherman, and I have been where you are at. In 2010, I pleaded guilty to two tax misdemeanors not involving any fraud, dishonesty, or unreported income. I served six months in a federal prison camp. I know the fear that results from the uncertainty and the unknown.
With my knowledge and insights, garnered not only from more than 45 years of practicing law, but also from serving time in a federal prison camp, I am able to play a unique role for clients who face federal charges. I understand the enhanced importance of federal cases, and know how to work with prosecutors from the U.S. attorney’s office to obtain the best possible outcome.

Federal crimes are very serious acts, and are illegal based on U.S. federal legislation. They often cross state lines, or they impact commerce in an interstate manner. These federal crimes commonly include:
- Internet pornography
- Counterfeiting, forgery, and currency violations
- Bribery, conspiracy, extortion, and blackmail
- Credit card fraud
- White collar crimes
- Bank robbery
- Child pornography
- Drug trafficking and other drug charges
- Tax fraud and tax evasion
Severe legal punishment can result, but effects can also reach firearm possession rights, employment, and immigration status.
It may seem odd for a highly regarded and proven Greenwich federal criminal defense attorney to hang his hat on the fact that he served time in prison, but I truly believe this separates me from other attorneys in a meaningful way that serves my clients well.
If you are under investigation for a federal crime, or you have been arrested and charged with a federal crime, put my experience from both sides of this situation to work for you.
