There are substantial differences between state and federal court when you are charged with a crime. The rules of evidence and procedure are different. Federal law enforcement has greater resources, and federal prosecutors, judges and federal sentencing structures can be tougher. Many federal offenses carry mandatory minimum sentences. Certain offenses such as bank fraud mandate a term of incarceration if convicted.

Jacksonville attorney Mitch Stone practices regularly in federal court. And not merely to plead clients guilty — he has tried numerous complex federal criminal cases to verdict. He has had success in all types of federal criminal cases from the granting of motions to dismiss, to securing the exclusion of evidence, and importantly to obtaining jury acquittals at trial.

Stone, P.A., has the resources, experience and knowledge to achieve favorable results for clients charged in federal court, as well as advancing post conviction appeals of federal convictions or sentences when necessary.
