Basic Information About Federal Offenses
Allegations of federal crimes are very serious and should be treated as such. The FBI, DEA or CIA may be involved with investigating the incident and the U.S. Attorneys Office will be in charge of prosecuting the case.
Litigation in the Virginia Federal Courts, whether related to federal crimes or civil cases, requires specialized knowledge and experience. The Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure, the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and the Local Rules of the Federal Court of the Eastern District of Virginia are different from the rules applied in the Virginia State courts.
Conviction of a federal offense often carries steep consequences. Furthermore, conviction rates are high for defendants charged in federal court because the prosecution is backed by thorough investigations by specialized government agencies. For these reasons, it is important that you contact our skilled attorneys as soon as possible, so that we may begin working together with you to create a strong defense catered to your specific case.
