The scope of the federal court is broad. The majority of federal cases are classed as felonies, and as such, carry severe penalties. These cases tend to be complicated, and the rules and guidelines that govern federal proceedings are different from those at the state level. Because of this, it is essential that you work with a criminal defense attorney who has experience working within the federal court system.
The jurisdiction of the federal courts includes:
Federal cases are quite involved, and it is not uncommon for them to take years before they are resolved. Additionally, the investigation phase of federal cases can be particularly time-consuming, and you may know you are under investigation long before you are charged and prosecuted. If you suspect you are under investigation for a federal crime, it is a good idea to hire legal representation before speaking to any federal investigators. An experienced attorney can guide you and ensure your rights are protected.
Many federal cases are focused on issues of fraud or cases which fall under what is colloquially known as “white-collar crimes.” Violent crimes are typically left to the state court’s jurisdiction, but some are handled by the federal courts, such as human trafficking and federal sex crimes. Many fraud-related and white-collar crimes violate federal laws, and even if they occur in just a single state, they will be handled by the federal government.
Examples of federal cases include:
The federal courts also hear cases related to civil rights. The federal courts don’t process as many cases as the state courts do, but their cases are generally considered to be of importance to the entire country. For this reason, many federal cases make it into the press and are widely reported.
