Concord Federal Crimes Lawyers
Fighting for Those with Serious Charges in Cabarrus County
Unlike crimes where charges are brought by a state or municipal court, federal crimes are those prosecuted by large government agencies against people who are suspected of a more serious offense. These charges are investigated long before they are officially announced, so defending yourself against them requires more time and preparation if you are to avoid longer, more severe fines and prison sentences. At Brannen & Walker, our Concord federal crime attorneys have the knowledge and skills you need in a trial attorney, and we can help you make your case.
Federal vs. State Crimes
Legal matters to be tried in federal court are enumerated in the US Constitution. They include anything regulated by federal law, including immigration, bankruptcy, patents, taxes, and currency. Other crimes may be tried in federal court if they took place on federal land or involved crossing state boundaries, such as drug trafficking.
Some crimes otherwise prosecuted under state laws can be prosecuted under federal law, such as:
If you have been charged with a federal crime, the investigating agency will go beyond any city or state police department. Instead, you will be going up against the FBI, ATF, DHS, or some other federal agency. These investigating bodies know how to secure convictions, and they may bring charges against you under laws you didn’t know existed.

Schedule Your Same-Day Consultation Right Away
By the time you are officially charged with a federal offense, the prosecution will have been working on your case for months. Successfully defending yourself will require more than just claiming that you are innocent or arguing that your investigators don’t have the facts straight.
Instead, your strategies should include:
- Demonstrating that law enforcement or prosecutors unlawfully obtained evidence against you
- Showing that you were coerced into acting in a criminal manner
- Denying the severity of the offenses in question
- Fighting for a sentence that better suits the severity of the offenses in question
- Casting doubt on the narrative put forward by your prosecutors
