Experienced Federal
Criminal Law Attorney

If you are accused of a crime that violates a statute passed by Congress, you will be tried in federal court. If you have been charged with a federal crime, you need an experienced criminal defense attorney on your side. Law Offices of Randy Sue Pollock fights to defend the rights of clients. I have built my reputation on getting results. I am intimately familiar with all facets of the federal criminal justice system. I have the knowledge and skill to make sure you understand your legal options and to guide you through the legal process.

There are many ways to end up in federal court. If you are accused of breaking a federal law, you will be tried at the federal level. Crimes against federal agencies such as the Securities and Exchange Commission (e.g., securities fraud), U.S. Treasury (e.g., counterfeiting), Environmental Protection Agency (e.g., toxic waste dumping), Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (e.g., gun offenses) and Drug Enforcement Agency (e.g., all types of drug offenses) are federal crimes.

Ms. Pollock defends against such federal criminal offenses as:

  • Drug Crimes
  • Fraud—Wire and Mail
  • Internet Crimes
  • Immigration Fraud
  • Securities/Anti-Trust Fraud
  • Money Laundering
  • Child Pornography
  • Racketeering and RICO
  • Corporate Espionage

Federal prosecution requires an attorney with federal defense experience

I understand federal criminal law and all aspects of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure, including:

  • Federal Bail Reform Act
  • Motions to compel discovery
  • Federal Sentencing Guidelines

Don’t give the federal prosecutor an added advantage. I handle all types of criminal cases, from complex white collar crimes to espionage. No matter what obstacle has been placed in your way, rest assured that Law Offices of Randy Sue Pollock will strive diligently to help you overcome it and work tenaciously to attain the best possible result for you.


Congratulations to Randy Sue Pollock for winning an acquittal for her client, one of the seven defendants in the MS-13 case recently tried in federal court in San Francisco. Research on severance demonstrates that it is often difficult for jurors to make distinctions between individual defendants who may have varying degrees of culpability, but Randy Sue met the challenge.

White Collar

Federal Court Attorney

“White collar crime” is the term used for intricate crimes committed solely for financial gain. What sets white collar crimes apart is that they are federal — not state — crimes. The federal court system can be complicated and confusing, and finding an attorney who can help you effectively navigate through its complexities can make the difference between victory and defeat.

Not only do I have extensive trial experience but I have also successfully negotiated hundreds of complex criminal cases. I am diligent and resourceful in representing individuals, businesses and employees who are caught up in the criminal process.

I represent clients involved in all types of white collar cases, including:

  • All forms of fraud
  • Embezzlement
  • Money Laundering
  • Bribery and extortion
  • Antitrust violations
  • Tax evasion
  • Corporate espionage
  • Computer hacking
  • Insider trading
  • Racketeering and RICO cases
  • Counterfeiting

Whether you have been charged or are currently being investigated, I take immediate steps to build your defense.

White collar crimes are often highly technical cases that require examination of years of financial and personal information and communications. If you have any suspicion that a case is being assembled against you, contact Law Offices of Randy Sue Pollock to obtain advice on how to limit your liability.

Going the extra mile to defend your freedom

Nothing is more important to me than your freedom. I make use of all available evidence and procedural tools to ensure that you get the justice you deserve. Through meticulous preparation and firm attention to detail, my efforts are always focused on achieving that goal. I personally speak with witnesses, comb through police records and thoroughly examine the alleged crime scene, if necessary. I also bring in experts who challenge the prosecution and help us prepare trial strategy.

Differences Between Federal and State Crimes

The vast majority of crimes committed today are state crimes governed by the state legislature. On the other hand, Congress establishes and enforces laws that constitute crimes at the federal level. State crimes encompass a broad range of offenses that occur far too frequently, such as:

  • Theft
  • Murder
  • Rape, And
  • Burglaries.
  • Drug offenses

Federal crimes include offenses such as:

  • Money Laundering.
  • Embezzlement and frauds,
  • Tax Evasion,
  • Immigration-Related Offenses
  • Drug Crimes
  • Child Pornography

Apart from the differences in offenses, the setting of the court proceedings and the person presiding over them are the main differences between state and federal crimes. The state court and federal court are two entirely separate systems with distinct courtrooms and jurors. Court sessions for state crimes are held in the town or district where the offense was committed. On the other hand, there are three levels of court for federal crimes- district court, appeals court, and supreme court.
