Defense of federal charges requires specialized qualifications that unseasoned state attorneys with no federal experience often don’t posses. Federal rules and regulations are different than other courts and the punishments are often much more severe. State and federal cases also differ in terms of how they are investigated and charged. On the state level, the accused is typically arrested and a more extensive investigation is conducted to follow-up. With the federal system, an exhaustive investigation is completed before charges are ever filed.
