Wisconsin Federal Court Litigation Attorney

Court counsel for criminal defendants

Since most criminal trials are prosecuted in state courts, the majority of practicing attorneys never even enter federal court. If you are charged with a federal crime or face a lawsuit where federal jurisdiction applies, you need an attorney who is more than simply acquainted with U.S. law and federal rules of procedure. The Hunt Law Group, S.C. has more than 31 years of experience litigating cases in the federal court system. Edward J. Hunt understands the many nuances, advantages and disadvantages of federal court, and is prepared to represent you in matters related to:

  • Federal criminal defense
  • Civil lawsuits filed in federal court
  • State court lawsuits where removal to federal court is permissible

Federal prosecution requires an attorney with federal defense experience

If you are accused of a crime that violates a statute passed by Congress, you will be tried in federal court. Crimes against federal agencies such as the Securities and Exchange Commission (e.g., securities fraud), the U.S. Treasury (e.g., counterfeiting), the Environmental Protection Agency (e.g., toxic waste dumping), the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (e.g., gun-running) and the Drug Enforcement Agency (e.g., drug smuggling) are federal crimes, as are crimes that cross state lines, such as moving a kidnap victim from one state to another. Crimes that use a federal agency, such as the U.S. Postal Service, to perpetrate an illegal act are likewise federal. Mr. Hunt understands federal criminal law and all aspects of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure, including:

  • Federal Bail Reform Act
  • Motions to compel discovery
  • Federal sentencing guidelines
