When a person files for bankruptcy, they are expected to provide a full and detailed list of all of their finances, debts and other assets that they may have. However, when an asset or a hidden fund is left off of their bankruptcy petition, they face serious criminal charges. In some cases, a person was unaware that they had a fund set up in their name, such as a fund from a deceased parent. When dealing with matters such as this, it is vital to have a federal criminal defense attorney at your side; the prosecution will attack and pry at your case until they find evidence to convict you.

Federal Court vs. State Court - Why You Need a Federal Defense Attorney
Why do you need an attorney who is experienced with federal criminal system in particular? Because, the Federal Court system operates completely differently than the State Courts, with different crimes, rules of procedure and sentencing laws. In Federal cases the possible sentences are covered by the individual criminal statutes and the United States Sentencing Guidelines. Federal Judges have less discretion in determining an appropriate sentence because of these guidelines. In Federal court, there is much less ability to plea bargain. Your attorney must have the experience and knowledge to know how to present your case so that it may fall outside the Sentencing guidelines which will allow for a more favorable sentence. When you have been charged with a
federal crime, it is very, very important that you choose an attorney who is intimately familiar with the federal system in order to help you to have the best chance at success in your particular case.
Federal crimes are prosecuted by attorneys who often have more experience and resources than the prosecuting attorneys at the State level. The United States Attorney’s Office is the federal agency responsible for representing the federal government in criminal cases throughout the U.S. Often the attorneys employed by the U.S. Attorney’s Office have extensive experience and well-established track records of success. In Los Angeles and surrounding counties, the United States Attorney’s Office for the Central District of California oversees all criminal prosecutions of violations of federal law, as well as civil and tax cases concerning the federal government.
