Federal criminal lawyers play an important role in many cities, including major metropolitan hubs like Detroit. Federal criminal lawyers usually go after very serious crimes, such as drug trafficking, racketeering, murder, robbery, white collar crimes, and more.
It’s important to understand the different between local, state and federal law systems. If you ever receive a ticket for incorrect parking in a city, the rules that govern that city are part of its municipal code. Cities and counties can establish their own set of ordinances.
Local ordinances can be overrode by state laws. While a city can enforce its own ordinances, it can’t nullify state law. Whenever an individual is in a city, they are subject to both set of laws. State law handles more serious crimes, such as DUI, reckless driving, felony theft, and more.
Federal laws are a step above state laws. Everyone in the United States is subject to federal law. States don’t have the ability to cancel or nullify federal law. Federal law covers all jurisdictions in the United States and in U.S. territories.
A federal criminal lawyer in Detroit may work on behalf of the government. They may also be tasked with defending an individual charged with a federal crime. Most federal crimes carry a minimum prison sentence of at least one year. If an individual is facing federal charges, they’ll be entitled to receive free legal defense in most cases. However, due to the seriousness of federal charges, many people choose to hire their own federal criminal defense attorneys too.
