If you've been arrested for a federal criminal offense, you might be in big trouble. Although state and federal criminal offenses typically involve similar types of charges, defense of a federal criminal case entails distinctive issues.
First, a federal criminal trial will occur in the federal court system, a complex and intimidating venue for any person unfamiliar with it. More importantly, the U.S. government has limitless resources and it is also far less likely to be willing to work with an individual accused of a federal crime.
