The American legal system is overseen by both state and federal government. When a crime directly violates federal legislation, is committed on federal property, or is committed against a federal institution, cases will be handled by a federal court rather than a state court. In addition, federal offenses are often more serious crimes, much more aggressively prosecuted by a number of large agencies and harshly penalized.
Federal charges involve some of the most difficult and highly combative criminal cases. Whether your case can be resolved before or during a trial will depend on many factors, but you can rest assured that the federal criminal defense lawyers at our firm have the negotiation skills needed to work with prosecutors and the trial experience needed to fight effectively in court. Let our team fight your federal criminal charges.
Any individual who is facing charges for a criminal offense must retain legal counsel at once. Criminal charges, whether at a state or federal level, carry very serious penalties. The primary difference between state and federal charges is jurisdiction. State courts generally hear cases involving charges for crimes that violate state law, including theft, rape, DUI, traffic violations, as well as drug crimes and others. Federal charges involve more serious crimes, including those that violate federal law, or on federal property, or by a federal employee.
Drug trafficking, white collar crimes, tax evasion, credit card fraud, bank fraud, mortgage fraud, and computer crimes, as well as offenses listed under the RICO Act, are all crimes that will be filed at in federal court. If you are facing criminal charges, it is important that you retain counsel from an Olathe criminal attorney who has the knowledge and experience serving as defense counsel in federal court. Not all criminal lawyers are admitted to practice in this court system.
Part of what makes Garretson & Toth, LLC a true criminal defense firm is that we have a vast amount of resources in-house and exceptionally talented lawyers who specialize in certain areas of criminal law. This means that whatever your federal charge may entail, you can be confident knowing that your attorney has years of experience and a highly technical knowledge of the laws and defense strategies relating to your case.
