Michigan Federal Criminal Attorney
Criminal activity will typically be tried at the state level, however, in certain circumstances a crime will fall under the jurisdiction of the federal government. Any federal offense is a serious one. There are different branches of the government that can take on the case and a person facing federal charges may be investigated by the FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation), DEA (Drug Enforcement Agency), ICE (Immigration & Customs Enforcement) or another federal agency. He or she will also face prosecution by federal prosecutors and a trial in federal court and this will often come with higher penalties.
Agents and prosecutors at the federal level are often more experienced than those at a state level. Federal agencies also may have more funding and resources at hand as well as more freedom to investigate and prosecute cases. Federal courts operate differently than those at a state level, and as a defendant you most likely have much more at stake. You need a criminal defense attorney experienced in dealing with federal crimes. You need a Michigan criminal defense lawyer who can actually address your situation and give you the aggressive representation that will be necessary in the face of your federal charges.
