We Know How To Navigate The Federal Court System
A crime is classified as federal when it violates United States federal law. Various crimes may fall under federal jurisdiction, including those on federal property or that cross state lines, such as weapons or drug trafficking.

Prosecutors and law enforcement at the federal level are vastly different than at the state level. With fewer cases and more resources, federal prosecutors are often more prepared and less likely to accept a plea deal. The court procedures themselves also differ in federal courts. Federal judges have different standards and use different procedures that require a separate area of knowledge and experience to navigate.
