The difference between state and federal crimes is not as simple as severity. After all, most homicides are state crimes that carry serious penalties.  The difference between the laws and the procedures is quite substantial. You need an attorney who understands those differences and has experience providing state and federal defense.

Given the severity and complexity of federal criminal investigations and prosecutions, anyone charged with a federal crime should retain a lawyer who has extensive experience in federal criminal defense. If you need a federal criminal defense attorney with decades of successful results, contact our firm and discuss your case in complete confidence. You will not find a law firm with more recent successful results, better credentials, or a deeper commitment to pursuing justice for people who need help in federal court.

The United States government has enacted a substantial body of federal criminal statutes, including many laws governing drug crimes. In addition, crimes under state law can become federal crimes if any part of the offense was committed across state borders. If you have been charged with violating a federal statute, you may be tried and, if convicted, sentenced under complex advisory federal sentencing guidelines. If you have been charged with violating a federal criminal statute, contact an attorney who is experienced at handling cases in the federal courts as soon as possible.
