Charged in Federal Court?
The vast majority of criminal defense attorneys rarely defend clients in Federal Court. If you are facing potential Federal criminal charges, you need to be aware that federal punishments are frequently more severe than those in Oregon State Courts and you should have an attorney experienced with the Federal Court prosecution.
Many aspects of federal court are quite different, including the statutes, court procedures and even the culture of the court system. Unlike state prosecutors who frequently may be burdened by heavy caseloads, in federal court the prosecution has plenty of time to devote to proving your guilt.
Federal Court Experience Matters

The very first federal case Mark Cogan handled went all the way to the United States Supreme Court. Mark has an AV Peer Review Rating* from Martindale-Hubbell and has been listed as an Oregon Super Lawyer from 2007 through the present date. Mark also attended the National Criminal Defense College.
