ARE YOU FACING FEDERAL CHARGES?
Federal crime charges require the representation of a lawyer who is qualified and experienced in defending cases in Federal Court. Federal charges and Federal Court are distinct from the State Court system and thus your attorney will need to be familiar with federal rules and procedures in order to be successful in defending your case. Additionally, penalties for federal offenses are typically more severe than those for crimes tried in State Court.
TYPES OF FEDERAL OFFENSES
Child pornography, drug trafficking, kidnapping, organized crime, tax evasion, counterfeiting and many fraud crimes are all Federal offenses. The FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation), DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration) and the IRS (Internal Revenue Service) are only a few of the federal agencies which may become involved if you are suspected of a federal crime. These agencies tend to have more resources to conduct a lengthy investigation in order to gather evidence against you, sometimes working for months before you are even aware that you are under suspicion for anything. Your lawyer will therefore play a major role in the outcome of your case. If your lawyer is familiar with going up against federal agencies and prosecutors, he will be unfazed and will be able to take a firm stance against these organizations and persons.
