When individuals find themselves arrested for breaking state laws, their criminal charges are typically tried in state court. However, when the illegal activities involve federal laws established by Congress, the case may be prosecuted in federal court. These federal cases carry immense gravity, as the government possesses substantial resources to take action against alleged federal offenders.
To navigate the distinction between state and federal crimes and effectively defend against the federal charges you are facing, it is crucial to have a lawyer by your side who will equip you with the necessary information and fight tirelessly for your rights throughout the entire process.
