wisconsin federal courthouse milwaukeeFEDERAL COURT

The federal courts have jurisdiction when an offense is committed on federal property, or if the offense involves a matter of "national significance" such as mail fraud, wire fraud, drug distribution, or terrorism.

In Wisconsin, federal property includes the reservations, military installations, and places like the US Post Office and Federal Courthouses.

It is important to look for an attorney who has experience in handling federal matters, as the rules and procedures differ greatly from those of the state courts. 

Be sure to ask if the attorney you are considering has had enough experience in the federal court system to see your case through- you won't want to lose your case because of a missed deadline or rejected motion.

I have had years of experience in the federal court system- please see my biography for more details on my US Air Force JAG career.

 

Federal cases I have handled successfully: 

-Jury found defendant not guilty in federal marijuana case. 

-Jury found defendant not guilty in federal cocaine case.

-Federal court dismissed child abuse charges. 

-Convinced federal judge to grant eight-level downward departure in wire fraud case: sentence reduced to time served.

-Convinced US Attorney to dismiss drug conspiracy charges against gang member after establishing problems with government's case.

-Represented numerous criminal defendants in filings with US Supreme Court.

* The above examples are real client cases handled by me, Attorney Kirk Obear. They are intended only as examples of past successful casework and are not intended to be an indication of the likelihood of success in any other particular case. Just because you have been charged with a similar offense, you should not assume that the result in your case would be the same as any of those listed above. However, these examples are given to demonstrate the level of commitment and dedication to your case that you should expect from my firm.
