A trial at the Federal level may seem much the same as a state trial, but it is fundamentally different. At the Federal level, everyone from the prosecutors you will be confronting, to the investigators testifying against you, to the judge deciding your fate, will be experienced, effective, and highly educated people. Unlike state or local agents, most F.B.I., D.E.A., A.T.F. and other federal agents have years of experience and college degrees. Many federal prosecutors are graduates of Ivy League universities.
When you are prosecuted in Federal court, it is these disciplined, driven individuals who are tasked with putting you in prison. And, because Federal crimes are so often more serious than those pursued at the state level, sentences tend to be much more severe.
Because of the higher stakes and more challenging playing field in Federal courts, those under prosecution or investigation at the Federal level are well advised to pursue the highest-quality representation they can find. Tim Bower Rodriguez has more than a decade in the demanding environment of Federal Court, and a long record of successful defenses.
