How Does Federal Court Differ from Criminal Court?

Federal criminal laws differ from state laws as they aim to prosecute activities that are considered serious crimes against the nation rather than just individual states. The United States Department of Justice and the United States Attorney's Office handle federal crimes, whereas state laws are prosecuted by the Los Angeles District Attorney's Office or the Torrance City Attorney’s Office. 

In addition, there are various federal agencies that may investigate you. These can include:

  • The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA)
  • The Internal Revenue Service (IRS)
  • The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI)
  • The United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)
  • The Secret Service
  • The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF)

Since the rules and procedures followed by Federal Courts are different than state courts, it is important to seek the guidance of a seasoned criminal defense lawyer when faced with federal charges. The stakes are high in federal cases, and having our skilled legal team can make a world of difference in protecting your rights and seeking a favorable outcome.
