F
EDERAL & STATE CRIMINAL LAW
At the Law Offices of John D. Kirby, we understand both federal and state criminal law. One of the most significant difference between federal crime and state crimes is the investigation process. Whereas state charges may be filed after little or no investigation at all, federal charges tend to follow substantial investigations that may have taken place over the course of months or even years. Federal investigations may involve searches and wiretaps that yield large amounts of evidence that prosecutors will use against the accused, whom they may not file charges against until they are absolutely certain they have a concrete case.

YOU DO NOT HAVE TO WAIT FOR THE CONCLUSION OF THE FEDERAL GRAND JURY INVESTIGATION TO TAKE ACTION.

In fact, proactively retaining a lawyer as early in the process as possible allows for the opportunities to work with investigators and prosecutor, setting the stage for a successful defense case, if not mitigating charges before they are even filed.
