Can any criminal defense lawyer defend me in a federal criminal case?
No, you need an experienced federal criminal defense attorney, to represent you in a federal case. The federal court system and the state court system are completely different to each other. They couldn’t be more unlike. In federal court, you’re dealing with extremely serious cases, with very high prison sentences. You’re dealing with Assistant United States Attorneys and Federal District Court Justices, which is completely different to state court.
When you’re in the federal system, it’s essential that you have an experienced federal criminal defense attorney to represent you in your case, so that we can get you acquitted, or that we can assure that you get the lowest possible sentence.
