Federal Criminal Lawyer :
A Federal Criminal Lawyer is an attorney that specializes in representing people that have been charged with a criminal offense on a federal level. This is considerably different than a state offense and, therefore, special care should be shown to hire someone that is familiar with criminal law on a federal level. There are various reasons a crime may be considered on the federal level instead of the state level. This is called jurisdiction and is often based on the location of the crime or the type of crime committed. However, the punishment may be very different also, as a perpetrator faces time in federal prison instead of a state facility. The trial process is also a lot different on a federal level, which requires a different number of jurors than state court, a different location, and other technical differences. For this reason, someone that specializes is important when dealing with federal crimes.
