Every state has its own laws for every crime, and while many of these laws are similar, there are slight differences not only in the law but in the public perception and precedents regarding the laws. For this reason, it is extremely important to enlist the aid of an attorney who is familiar with cases in your area that are similar to yours. That's because it increases the chances that your legal advisor will be able to tailor your specific circumstances to your state laws.
However, there are some criminal acts that go beyond state laws, crimes that are prosecuted at the federal level in federal courts. These crimes generally involve allegations of illegal activity that took place in multiple states or even internationally. Starting a health care company in order to trick people all across the country out of their money, for instance, could be federal health care fraud. Transporting illegal materials such as weapons or drugs across state lines in order to sell them is another example.
When it comes to federal charges, the stakes are raised significantly higher. Likewise, the possible penalties can be even more severe, so it is extremely important to defend yourself. But just like with state laws, it is in your best interests to enlist the aid of an attorney who knows how to handle federal laws. That's where we come in.
