The federal court system has its own set of laws and procedures different from Arkansas law. Justify Law is here to help whether you are charged with a federal criminal offense or involved in a multi-state lawsuit.
Federal cases can be scary, especially for someone not familiar with the court system to begin with. A lawsuit in federal court typically involves a party from a different state or a substantial amount of money.
A criminal case in federal court can oftentimes be a high profile white collar crime, but most of the time involves a petty offense. These are comparable to a misdemeanor offense in state court, but occurred on federal lands. An example of this might be someone who is charged with possession of a controlled substance on the Buffalo River.
Though similar to state court charges, these petty offenses are handled entirely different than how they would be at a local district court.
