Defense against federal crimes requires a different level of skill and expertise than required for defense against state crimes. If you're facing federal charges, you need a criminal defense attorney who has a command of federal court procedure and requirements. Attorney Pat Stangl has been successfully defending clients facing federal charges in Wisconsin since 1991.
In determining whether a crime will be a state or federal offense, jurisdiction must be established. If a crime is found to occur within a state's boundaries, it will typically be considered a state offense. If the crime took place in a federal location, such as a national museum or park, the federal government would have jurisdiction.
Sometimes it's possible for a crime to occur in both state and federal jurisdictions. In such cases, charges may be limited to the state, but can also be brought by both the state and the federal government.
Just as you would hire a criminal defense lawyer with experience defending cases in your state to defend your case in state court, you should hire a proven federal criminal defense lawyer to defend your federal case.

"I made a terrible mistake which resulted in me getting indicted in federal court. Luckily Attorney Stangl accepted the case and represented me in the matter. He fought very hard for me and is extremely knowledgeable and thorough. He was able to demonstrate that they miscalculated my advisory guideline range and the court agreed with everything Attorney Stangl argued. In this very serious case, thanks to him, I did not do any jail even though I was looking at a potential significant term of imprisonment which needless to say would have further complicated an already bad situation. The quality of his representation is unsurpassed and exceeded any and all of my expectations."
