-Facing Federal Criminal Prosecution by the United States Government?

San Diego Federal Attorney Anton Vialtsin possesses the knowledge and experience to handle the full spectrum of federal criminal charges, from misdemeanors to capital murder cases.

San Diego Federal Attorneys at LAWSTACHE LAW FIRM routinely represent clients facing federal criminal charges. The basic difference between federal and state criminal offenses is that a federal offense violates federal law, and a state offense violates state law. In some cases, however, federal and state laws cover the same area of criminal law. If state law contradicts federal law, federal law generally trumps state law in the interest of the national welfare. In other areas of criminal law, the federal government has exclusive power to regulate, enforce, and prosecute alleged crimes. The federal government has exclusive power to prosecute crimes involving interstate commerce, national security, and federal programs. For example, most white-collar crimes, such as credit card fraud, tax evasion, and welfare fraud, are prosecuted in federal courts.

The federal government vested much power in Federal judges compared to the California State Courts. In the federal system, the sentencing guidelines estimate the amount of prison time an individual will likely do for a crime. These guidelines are only advisory, not mandatory. This means that a judge does not have to follow the sentencing guidelines. Aside from trial and/or plea negotiations, the sentencing hearing often becomes crucial in the defendant’s life.
