What Are Federal Crimes?
Federal crimes involve the violation of the United States criminal code, interstate criminal activity or crimes that occur on federal property or victimize government agencies or employees. While it is possible to be charged at both state and federal levels, it is very important to remember that preparing and presenting a criminal defense in federal court is a skill practiced by only a few, very accomplished Philadelphia attorneys.
