If you have been charged with a federal crime, the simple truth is that you are in big trouble. While state and federal crimes usually involve the same types of charges, defense of a federal criminal case involves unique challenges. First, a federal criminal trial will occur in the federal court system, and, more importantly, the federal government has unlimited resources and is much less likely to be willing to work with someone. The Las Vegas based Christiansen Law Offices has extensive legal experience working with clients who have been charged with federal crimes.
