The federal criminal justice system is complex. Any individual or business under federal investigation can make the mistake of under estimating the government’s agents or prosecutors. Another mistake you can make in defending yourself against federal charges is to hire an attorney with state criminal law experience only, even if such attorney is very successful. In short, a good state criminal law attorney may fail to have years of experience negotiating with federal attorneys or agents and resolving federal charges.
