Federal criminal charges can be much more serious than state charges, largely because of the impact of federal sentencing guidelines upon conviction and the fact that most cases are investigated for months or years before an arrest is made. It is essential to work with a New York federal criminal defense lawyer who knows federal criminal law and has experience in federal court.
