Federal criminal cases in general last a lot longer than state criminal cases. These types of cases are also more involved and the stakes are much higher for the client. Choosing an attorney that has experience dealing with the FBI or DEA can make a big difference in the outcome of your case. The investigation process by the government can be much different. Having an understanding of this process is a distinct advantage. If you need an experienced federal criminal defense attorney in New York, contact Brooklyn criminal defense attorney Paul D.
