Though most criminal defense cases are tried in a state court, any crime that violates a federal law, or was committed on federal property, must be tried in a federal courtroom. Certain crimes are a violation of both state and federal ordinances and can be tried at either the state or federal level. In rare cases, the same crime is prosecuted at both the state and federal level.
Though the outcomes of a criminal trial can never be guaranteed, the experience of a skilled Portland federal defense attorney makes a huge difference. In every case, there are seemingly insignificant moments, details, and opportunities that will ultimately determine the outcome. Being able to identify those opportunities and maximize their potential is what sets the Law Office of Graham C. Fisher apart.
