A Federal Case Requires an Attorney with Federal Experience
Federal criminal defense is a very specific practice that requires experienced legal counsel. Whether you are under indictment, have been subpoenaed to testify before a federal grand jury, or have received a target letter from federal prosecutors indicating you are a person of interest, it is crucial that you seek competent and experienced legal counsel as soon as possible. Federal criminal law is nuanced and complicated. Perils abound. There are plenty of good criminal defense lawyers with experience dealing with federal cases, and there are plenty of lawyers who do not have the experience but are more than happy to take your money. Make sure that the lawyer you talk to has the tools they need to properly counsel you through what could be the most momentous events of your life.
It is also important to be aware of the possibility that North Carolina criminal charges might be dismissed in favor of a federal indictment. This happens with some frequency. If you hire an attorney for a state charge that "goes federal" and your attorney does not handle federal cases, you could find yourself paying two attorneys for the same case. If there's a possibility your state charges might be taken on by federal prosecutors, it is a good idea to hire one lawyer who can handle both situations.
