Facing Federal Charges?
Federal criminal cases and state criminal cases are dramatically different. While both certainly can come with serious penalties, the stakes tend to be much higher in federal cases. Perhaps more importantly, federal cases involve federal law enforcement agencies and prosecutors, who are highly trained and adept at careful investigation and case preparation. Often, they do not even bring charges unless they know they can win. In other words, if you have been charged with a federal crime, you are in for an uphill battle.

When Should You Call A Federal Criminal Defense Lawyer?
Federal investigators may begin investigating well in advance of filing criminal charges. You do not have to wait until charges are filed to begin preparing a defense strategy. In fact, early intervention from a knowledgeable federal criminal defense lawyer can make a dramatic difference in how the case proceeds. During the investigation stage, your attorney may be able to work to prevent charges from being filed, to have reduced charges filed or to have charges filed in state instead of federal court. Ultimately, if you get an advocate on your side early who will work at an even pace with federal agents, you will prevent your opponents from getting a head start, which may pay off substantially in the long term.
So, whether you have been questioned, you are aware you are under investigation or you have had charges filed against you, the right time to call a lawyer is as soon as possible.
