When criminal charges come from the federal government, they tend to be more serious, with stiffer fines and other penalties. The entire criminal justice system is more complicated at the federal level, too, with different motion requirements and other complications.
If you are facing federal charges, certainly do not try to handle your criminal defense on your own, and only work with an experienced lawyer with a strategic approach to helping you. A federal crime means big trouble, so you need a solid lawyer to defend you.
