Because federal investigators with agencies such as ATF, IRS, DEA or Secret Service are generally better trained, far more experienced, and have far greater resources than their state and local counterparts a federal investigation may go on for years before a U.S. Attorney is ready to file charges.
For this reason selecting a truly knowledgeable and experienced Tampa defense lawyer with a proven track record to represent you in federal court is vital. It takes a legal team which is prepared to swing into action to investigate the circumstances of your case.
Facing federal charges is likely the most daunting situation an individual can experience. With the vast resources available to federal investigators, the U.S. Attorney's office can afford to take its time gathering evidence and constructing its case. Often a U.S. Attorney is ready to go to court before an arrest is made.

From the time of arrest to the start of the trial is a much shorter period of time than with most state prosecutions.
