FEDERAL CYBERCRIMES is the computer crimes division of the Cashman Law Firm
™. We provide protection for internet users who are accused of committing computer crimes, including hacking, theft, espionage, downloading of copyrighted materials, improper distribution of copyrighted contents, and other computer crimes.
A fourth area of practice which we do not actively advertise is federal criminal law, specifically with regard to internet and computer crimes. At the Cashman Law Firm, PLLC
we take part in protecting your privacy rights through political discussions with regard to net neutrality, and we protect the internet user against internet service providers (ISP's) and companies who assert that the user was involved in illegal movie-sharing, seeding, or illegal downloading of songs, programs, or movies.
The reason we do this is two-fold. Firstly, we are staunch believers in privacy, and thus we will take steps to protect the rights of users. Secondly, we believe that there is a technology gap between the laws and how they relate to today's internet user. It troubles us that the application of the laws as they are effected today often leads to multiple individuals being charged with one or more federal and state computer crimes they often did not commit. These companies approach individuals threatening prosecution, civil fines and penalties in a law suit, and even threaten jail time with the hopes of eliciting thousands of dollars in settlement fees from each individual regardless of whether they are guilty of the crimes they are accused of committing. Without attorney assistance, these accused individuals often pay thousands in settlement fees in fear that they would have to spend just as much money if a law suit were filed. This is simply unacceptable. People should not have to pay someone a ransom for protection, or else. Technology has advanced to the point where the correct application of justice is possible; we would like to push the law in the direction of properly charging users with crimes they are sure to have committed rather than accusing whole scores of users in a pool without knowing who is guilty and who is not.
