No matter if your case is severe or petty, the Feds have a habit of blowing things up into Hollywood productions. They are famous for their covert operations and pushing the boundaries of what is ethical and legal law enforcement if the “ends appear to justify the means”. This means that they will break every rule in the book to convict you if you don’t hire competent counsel.
How Can an Experienced Attorney Help My Case?
Although some law firms simply go through the motions and offer the bare minimum of support, our law firm specializes in being thorough and effective. We know what is trending in the law and have enough experience to engineer effective defense strategies. Engineering defenses is a lot like engineering other products such as cars. Today’s automobiles are far safer and more fuel-efficient than those produced in decades past. Our defense techniques keep building up our methods and improving them to make the most persuasive arguments for your case.
We stand beside you when you are being interrogated and questioned by police to stop them from fabricating evidence. The difference between cases where the defendant made a statement and those without are often night and day in the federal courts. By agreeing with any part of the prosecution’s theory, you have made their job that much easier.
Release on Bail
Being in prison during the pendency of your case is a dangerous thing. Federal prisons heavily monitor all communications and will use every word and clue against you. The prisons are also infamously filled with jailhouse informants (aka rats) who will provide information to the guards for something as insignificant as a pair of used sneakers confiscated from another inmate. They may agree to wear a wire and will help to develop evidence against suspects. We will work to free you on bond with the least amount of money and restrictions possible.
You have the right to full disclosure before your trial of all evidence against you and in your favor. The prosecutors know how valuable evidence is and may try to suppress evidence that removes that black and white polarity of guilt from their case. We do not stand by and leave you defenseless. We will fully secure your evidence rights to prevent violations of Brady v. Maryland, 373 U.S. 83 (1963). Violations of this U.S. Supreme Court case and its progeny are one of the leading causes of wrongful conviction.
It is possible to avoid a trial altogether with quality depositions of the prosecution’s witnesses. Depositions allow us to nail down the testimony of an agent or other eye-witnesses and to then use that evidence to impeach them if they testify differently at trial. We will make a full record of the issues that may come up and ask the right questions to form the basis for a motion to dismiss.
We will also seek to suppress any evidence that unfairly prejudices you at trial. These motions are important and can have cases thrown out on technicalities and preserve key errors for appeal.
Plea Bargaining or Trial
It is our duty to advise you when to take a plea if a trial is risky and when to go full force to trial. It is ultimately your decision to make, however. In any regard, when we put in the preparation to weaken the case up front. This gives pause to prosecutors who are concerned about the unpredictable nature of a jury. Therefore, you are more likely to get a lenient sentence or avoid conviction altogether with our help.
