Recent Victories in Federal Court
For instance, Mr. Bajaj was able to secure a sentence of 18 months in a complicated highly-publicized case wherein the government was requesting a sentence of almost twenty years.
In another case, Mr. Bajaj’s client was accused of being a large scale supplier of methamphetamine for the Hell’s Angels, which has been labeled as a criminal motorcycle gang. After seizing 7 guns and a large quantity of methamphetamine during the execution of the search warrant, in a addition to the seizures made after agents listened to the hundreds of hours of wiretaps, his client was facing 40 years or more in federal custody.
In the end, the United States Attorney’s Office was forced to announce that Mr. Bajaj’s client received the most beneficial deal of almost 3 dozen named defendants. His client will serve approximately 3 years rather than 40 years in custody.
Mr. Bajaj is routinely called upon as an expert in federal law. He has appeared on many local and national TV and Radio outlets.

Federal Drug Charges Defense
Our criminal defense firm defends people facing federal drug charges:
- Drug trafficking

Federal drug charges often target large-scale drug operations involving large amounts of drugs. These are often felony drug charges, subject to harsh penalties including significant prison time.
Federal Sentencing Guidelines – Mandatory Minimum Sentences
Federal Sentencing Guidelines set the penalties for federal drug offenses. The government has imposed mandatory minimum sentences for a drug crime conviction. These sentences are now ADVISORY. This means that federal judges still use the Guideline still use the Guidelines as a reference, but not as a mandatory reference.
It is important to understand that federal cases must be handled in different way than state cases. In federal cases, one must assume the federal government has done their “homework” and knows a lot about the target of the investigation. The way a federal case is negotiated and litigated is also very different. Having a strong working relationship with federal prosecutors is crucial to gaining a favorable result for one charged with a federal offense. This relationship is gained through experience dealing with the United States Attorney’s Office frequently and successfully.
The Federal Sentencing Guidelines are a set of rules that dictate how one will be sentenced in federal court. Attorney Vikas Bajaj understands the Guidelines, and has used them to gain lesser sentences for many of his clients. In comparison to a state sentence calculation, federal sentence calculations are extremely complex. Having the right federal defense attorney can make a substantial difference in the outcome of your federal case.
Attorney Vikas Bajaj has tremendous experience handling federal criminal cases in different jurisdictions, including the Southern District of California, Central District of California, Eastern District of Michigan, and the Western District of Washington.
