Charged with a Federal Crime?

If you have been charged with a federal crime, you may be asking yourself, “Do I need a lawyer?” For a number of reasons, the answer is “YES.” Federal cases are handled very differently than state cases. First, and foremost, federal charges are more severe, and carry much stiffer penalties than most state charges. Second, federal criminal investigations are led by federal law enforcement agencies who are better funded, and much more experienced than state investigators. Next, federal prosecutors are very experienced trial lawyers, and have virtually unlimited resources to prosecute your case. Finally, federal judges have lifetime appointments, and much less crowded dockets, allowing them to give more attention to your case.
