Federal Crimes


There is a reason the term “federal charges” causes fear in even a seasoned criminal defendant. The federal criminal system employs procedural rules and sentencing guidelines that are complex and differ considerably from state court rules. Federal judges are highly qualified and take a more academic approach to the law. Smaller caseloads and court dockets can cause a case to move faster from arrest to trial. And federal sentences are generally much harsher, especially for drug and gun cases or defendants with criminal records.

Preparation, knowledge and experience are critical to fighting federal charges. If you have been charged with a federal crime, it is important to consult with a defense attorney who is familiar with all aspects of federal court, both at the trial and appellate levels. When so much is at stake, you deserve a strong advocate. Choosing the right attorney may be one of the most important decisions you make.
