Representation from Attorneys Experienced in Federal Court
Not all criminal defense attorneys are well-versed in the differences between the practice of law in state and federal courts and many are surprised at these differences. Therefore, it is important to have an attorney who is knowledgeable of the substantive law, procedures of the federal court, and federal sentencing guidelines.
There are many reasons a crime might be tried in a federal court, such as:
- The location of the crime, such as crimes committed on federal property.
- Crimes committed in more than one state, such as drug trafficking or kidnapping.
- Issues affecting interstate or foreign commerce.
- A crime against a federal official or agent.
- Defrauding a federal program.
