Federal Criminal Defense Attorneys in Knightdale
While an overwhelming majority of crimes are prosecuted by the state, when an act violates the United States Code, the case can be taken over by the Department of Justice, making it a federal case. Often, these cases involve crimes that were allegedly committed on or involving federal property or that crossed state lines. Investigations are headed by a federal agency, including:
- Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI)
- Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA)
- Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF)
- Customs and Border Protection (CBP)
- Secret Service
- United States Marshals Service
Federal crimes are prosecuted by a United States Attorney representing the Department of Justice, and they often carry more severe punishments, such as higher fines and longer prison sentences. Also, the Department of Justice has more resources to investigate and prosecute crimes, making them a formidable opponent.
As federal criminal defense lawyers in Knightdale, Coolidge Law Firm can represent you in cases against the state as well as in the Eastern District of North Carolina. Our experience and passion for justice gives us the ability to stand up to the Department of Justice and fight for our clients with the same temerity as we do against state and local prosecutors.
