Federal Charges

What is the difference between federal and state charges? Federal prosecutors take fewer chances and have tremendous resources. Going up against them requires a higher level of legal knowledge. And a lot more is on the line — many federal defendants are never seen in public again because they are incarcerated.

One other thing distinguishing federal cases is that the people have great respect for one another. They have been around and proved themselves. State courts, being less well-funded, hire a lot of prosecutors out of school. They are doing their best, but its on-the-job training.

White Collar Crime

We also take white collar crime cases at the state level: embezzlement, computer crimes, counterfeiting, extortion, forgery, fraud, grand theft, identity theft, insurance fraud, Ponzi schemes and workers' compensation fraud.
