The sooner we get on the case, the faster we can begin to work for you and justice.

A federal crime is a crime that is 1) against the United States and 2) is tried by the United States of America. Federal cases have over a 95% conviction rate so you need an experienced team of lawyers on your side to fight the evidence against you and the tenacity of a federal prosecutor. Federal investigative agencies have the most advanced teams, technology, and tactics, and they will expend as much energy and resources to secure a conviction against you. These agencies sometimes build their cases for years using wires, phone taps, tailing/following, and informants so that when you are charged their case against you is seemingly all but solid. These agencies include the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Internal Revenue Service (IRS), among others. 

As a generality, a person knows if they dealing with the federal government if they commit an offense involving multiple states, if an offense crosses state lines, offenses against customs and immigration, and offenses on federal land. The United States Code spells out more specific instances of violations of the federal laws. Federal Courts differ from state courts in that they have their own set of rules, procedures, and punishments. 

One of the biggest differences between violations of the Laws of the State and violation of Federal Laws is the severity of punishments. The punishment range for Federal Crimes is based on the Federal Sentencing Guidelines which has its own mathematical and analytical methodology of assigning punishment. Furthermore, at the state level, an individual can cut down their time significantly, however, at the federal level, reductions are few and limited. Furthermore, you can be forced to pay fines in excess of Millions of dollars.
