When Is A Charge Brought In Federal Court?

One of the main things that differentiates state and federal charges is the level of complexity. A federal criminal charge may allege the crime crossed state lines, and it may include boxes of evidence from search warrants and investigations. This means that the defense strategy must also account for complicated elements and more technical case law and statutes.

The law firm of Hayes Ruemmele LLC is uniquely placed to provide federal defense representation to clients in Indianapolis and throughout Indiana.

What Makes Us Different?

Our firm’s attorneys combine for more than 50 years of defense experience and continue to collaborate on all cases to build the strongest possible defense for clients facing federal criminal charges. We understand the ins and outs of the federal system and have the skills necessary to limit your exposure to harsh penalties such as prison time and a felony criminal record.

Federal Penalties Are More Severe

The federal government chooses the cases it handles and has very serious federal sentencing guidelines at its disposal. The rules of procedure in federal court are also uncompromising and must be followed carefully. Many cases involve mandatory minimum sentences. Our firm knows when those mandatory minimum sentences can be lifted.

We have the resources and experience to defend you or your business against a federal government prosecution. We have represented clients charged with child exploitation, health care and securities fraud, and drug trafficking in addition to other federal offenses.
