Face your white collar or federal arrest head-on by learning about what you have been charged with, the federal court process, and how to properly defend yourself.

Being charged with a federal crime or receiving a target letter from the government can be a frightening experience. In many cases, federal crimes are serious accusations that can lead to severe penalties if you cannot competently defend yourself.

If you’ve been charged with drug manufacturing, gambling, fraud, or any other federal crime, you should start building your defense as soon as possible. To do this, please use the free resources in this section of our website to learn more about the crime that you are accused of and how you can defend yourself against this charge.

The majority of criminal charges are prosecuted on the state and local levels, but any crimes charged by the federal government are tried in federal court in Connecticut. If you have been arrested for a federal crime, your court process will differ from that of a person accused of a state crime.

One major difference is the type of court that you will be tried in. Federal crimes are tried in federal courthouses in the state of Connecticut. The Connecticut federal courthouses are located in Hartford, New Haven and Bridgeport. These federal crimes, sometimes referred to as “white collar” offenses, are prosecuted with the full backing of very powerful government agencies, such as the FBI, the IRS, the DEA, and many more. When you need a Connecticut white collar lawyer, you need Ruane Attorneys.
