Having a case against you in Federal Court can be daunting, especially if the outcome is likely to impact your business and/or future. Numerous types of cases can be brought in both state and federal court, but the path each such case takes will differ depending upon which court the case proceeds in. Federal Courts handle both civil and criminal cases.
The procedural rules for civil cases in Federal Court are different in numerous respects from those applicable in State Court and the Judges in Federal Court are more demanding with regard to compliance with those rules that their counterparts in State Court. Similarly, the criminal cases brought in federal court are subject to different rules than criminal cases initiated in State Court. One significant difference is the complex guideline structure for sentencing, which is detailed in nature and provides an entirely different array of potential sentences than those available in State Court.
