Know the points to focus on in a federal case

People who have to face criminal charges need to make sure that they consider what court they are going before. You might think that all courts are the same, but that isn't the case. There are some differences that can have an impact on how you prepare your case.

We realize that you might not have the experience to know what types of changes you need to make in these cases. We are here to help you determine how to answer the charges you face. You must ensure that you leave yourself enough time to consider the possibilities, because the decisions about the direction of your defense are yours to make.

One primary difference that you need to be aware of is that the preparation needed for federal cases is much greater than that required for state charges. Federal prosecutors have more resources than many other departments. This enables them to prepare more for the case when compared with the limited resources and time of a local prosecutor.

When we are looking at the defense options for your case, we want to find ways that we might be able to make people question the claims of the prosecutor. These questions may lead to reasonable doubt. As you probably remember, jurors have to be able to convict you "beyond a reasonable doubt," so this is an important point in your case.

You also have to think about how serious the penalties are for federal cases. These are sometimes much different from cases that are tried in the local courts, so you have to make sure you are basing your defense decisions on the correct information.
