Strong Criminal Defense Representation for Federal Offenses
Do I need to hire a special attorney for a federal crime?
Not every criminal defense attorney is admitted to practice in federal court. Admission to federal court alone does not necessarily mean that a lawyer has experience challenging charges under federal procedures and rules. Federal crime lawyers, investigators and prosecutors have substantial resources. If an indictment is handed down, the federal criminal case is invariably complex. If you are under federal investigation or accused of a federal crime, it is vital to engage a skilled and experienced defense attorney who understands all aspects of the federal rules, criminal statutes and federal sentencing guidelines.

What are the differences between federal and state crimes?
If you are ever charged with a crime, there can be major differences based on its designation of a state or federal offense. As a resident of Wisconsin, you not only have to abide by the laws of the state but also the legalities that are set forth by the United States government. The federal congress cannot pass a law unless they have a compelling federal interest over the activity. There are many nuances involved in what is incriminating for both types of government; let one of our federal trial lawyers assist you with questions.
