Federal Court Is A Different System
Federal crime charges are handled in federal courts. Most people know that. But many people don’t realize that the federal criminal justice system is very different from the state, county and local criminal court systems.

The Challenges Of Federal Crime Defense
Defending against charges in federal court is not the same as it is in state or local court systems. The rules of procedure and evidence are different and more complicated in the federal system. You need to make sure your attorney knows the federal system and has been through that process before, because, if your lawyer lacks that experience, it could result in a conviction for you that could otherwise have been avoided. Our head lawyer at The Law Office of Anthony Cecutti has knowledge and experience handling federal cases.
