Understanding Federal Cases

Federal Courts are established by the U.S. Constitution. While a majority of cases are heard in State Courts, our Federal Courts have restricted jurisdiction. This means they only hear a limited number of cases. Congress, as well as the Constitution, specifically define the types of cases Federal Courts can hear. Based on these standards, only certain cases may proceed to Federal Courts. These cases are often high profile and more complex than most cases heard in State Courts.

Types of cases heard in Federal Courts include:

  • Cases in which the U.S. government is a party
  • Bankruptcy cases
  • Maritime cases
  • Copyright and Patent cases
  • Cases involving violations of the Constitution

Federal Courts also hear cases involving the diversity of citizenship. This refers to disputes between citizens of different states or countries, and/or when the amount in question is above $75,000. In addition, Federal Courts hear cases involving questions of U.S. Federal laws, the Constitution, or the U.S. government.

Knowledgeable Representation for Federal Crime Cases

Federal cases are often complex, and require a thorough knowledge of the U.S. Constitution and legal system. Whether the case is a civil, criminal, bankruptcy, or another type of matter, Federal Court rulings are often final. This means they cannot be appealed. Because of this, having diligent legal representation on your side is important.

Criminal cases heard in Federal Courts often involve violations of Federal laws or crimes committed on Federal property (such as military bases or national parks). However, other crimes may be prosecuted as Federal cases. These include drug trafficking across state lines, tampering with U.S. mail, or robbing a Federally-insured institution. Criminal cases heard in Federal Courts are often more complicated than cases handled in State Courts. Thus, they require experienced Criminal Defense services to pursue a beneficial outcome.
