Federal and State Charges and Courts
Dublin Federal and State Defense Attorney Serving Castro Valley, Livermore, Pleasanton, San Ramon & Tracy
Federal and state courts are completely different legal venues, with separate personnel and charges, as well as penalties. When you are charged with a federal crime, it is necessary that you enlist the assistance of a skilled criminal defense lawyer that is familiar with the federal court system and its personnel and can effectively defend cases filed in that court system. The penalties for federal crimes are usually much more severe than those filed in the state court system, and the judges, prosecutors and investigatory units are some of the toughest in the country. If you have been charged with a federal crime, it is crucial that you contact Ivan O.B. Morse, Attorney at Law at once to begin the actions for your defense.
Criminal Defense Lawyer Providing Defense for State or Federal Charges
The federal government gets involved in criminal cases in which state lines have been crossed, such as weapons offense, kidnapping offenses, drug importation and others. When any communication system is used such as the U.S. Mail, the internet, courier services or others, it is likely that your charges will be filed in federal court and will include an added charge of Mail Fraud or Wire Fraud. These are very serious charges in themselves, and when the criminal offense is included, if convicted you could spend years in federal prison. If you are under investigation for a federal offense and have not yet been arrested, act quickly and contact us, as it is certain that your arrest is imminent. Do not answer any questions when under investigation for any crime until you have legal representation.
