Federal Cases

Federal Criminal Defense Attorney in Chattanooga, TN

Criminal charges at the federal level are serious and often subject to more extreme penalties over state level offenses. In addition to focused prosecution, investigators and prosecuting attorneys possess more resources and often have greater experience compared with state prosecutors. Seeking guidance and retaining legal counsel is important when regarding any and all federal matters.

Most of the cases that take place in federal courts are not criminal cases but civil cases – although criminal cases typically receive the most attention from the media. Usually, people involved in federal civil cases are members of different government agencies, but private individuals and businesses can also pursue federal civil cases.
