Criminal cases that are being investigated or prosecuted at the federal level are extremely consequential.

What Crimes Are Federal Crimes?
The types of crimes that may be prosecuted in federal court are similar to those that are prosecuted in state courts, but they usually involve very strict consequences and at least one of the following four criteria:
- Alleged crime committed on federal property
- Alleged crime in more than one state such as a kidnapping, drug trafficking or illegal merchandise transport across state lines
- Alleged criminal activity that affects interstate commerce such as using USPS or an express mail service to transport fraudulent checks, counterfeit money, illegal merchandise or drugs
- Federal official or agent is the victim of an alleged criminal act
If you or a loved one is under investigation for or being charged with a federal crime, it is critical to retain the services of a highly influential criminal defense attorney immediately. Federal investigators and prosecutors will take advantage of your unfamiliarity with federal procedures and scare you into thinking you have no options besides absolute submission.
