Experienced Federal Criminal Defense Attorneys at Spodek Law Group

Federal criminal cases can be incredibly complex and present significant differences from state court proceedings. At Spodek Law Group, our federal criminal defense attorneys have extensive experience in federal defense and remain up-to-date on legal issues affecting our clients. From U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) initiatives to precedential case decisions, we stay informed of developments to address them in our representation.

Former Prosecutors and Trial Lawyers with Insights

Many of our defense attorneys are former prosecutors and trial lawyers with the DOJ and the U.S. Attorney’s Office, and they prosecuted criminal cases for decades before entering private practice. Relying on the insights gained from this federal criminal defense attorney experience, we can anticipate a prosecutor’s strategies during investigations and prosecutions, proactively assert defenses, and mitigate the risk of conviction and sentencing at trial.

Our federal criminal attorneys have handled thousands of federal investigations and trials over their careers. When you hire a federal criminal attorney from Spodek Law Group, you will be represented exclusively by senior attorneys. Our attorneys will work collaboratively to build your defense, and we will aggressively fight to protect you against unnecessary consequences.

Custom-Tailored Defense Strategies

When you choose Spodek Law Group to defend you in your federal criminal case, we will promptly intervene in the government’s case, using our past DOJ experience to your advantage. We will quickly assess your potential exposure, building and executing a custom-tailored defense strategy focused on overcoming the government’s allegations. We will utilize statutory defenses, constitutional protections, safe harbors, and all other available means to prevent the possibility of a conviction at trial. Regardless of the current status of your case, our federal criminal attorneys will be thoroughly prepared to defend you at all stages of prosecution.

Our Federal Criminal Defense Practice

Our experienced federal criminal defense practice represents individual and corporate clients accused of fraud, financial crimes, drug crimes, and other serious white-collar offenses. We represent clients ranging from small businesses to multinational corporations, including business owners and executives, board members, healthcare providers, licensed professionals, politicians, and public figures. Our clients include cases involving all federal agencies and task forces.

Common Charges We Handle

While federal criminal cases can involve a broad array of allegations under a multitude of different statutes, some of the most common charges our federal criminal lawyers handle include bank fraud, healthcare fraud, insurance fraud, mail and wire fraud, mortgage fraud, securities fraud, intellectual property theft, money laundering, tax evasion, public corruption, bribery, theft of government property, drug crimes, attempt, and conspiracy.

Potential Issues in Federal Criminal Cases

Various issues have the potential to arise during the course of a federal criminal defense case, and you need the best Dallas federal criminal lawyers to handle them. When taking timely and effective action can mean the difference between avoiding allegations altogether and facing a conviction at trial, you need to make sure that you are doing everything possible to resolve your federal case as quickly and strategically as possible. Here are some of the potential issues that can arise during a criminal case at the federal level.

Illegally-Obtained Evidence

Federal agents and prosecutors conducting an investigation do not have free reign, and their actions are limited by the protections afforded in the U.S. Constitution. Any evidence obtained as a result of a constitutional violation may be deemed illegally-obtained and inadmissible in federal court, subject to certain limitations. Our experienced defense attorneys will work to keep illegally-obtained evidence out of your case.

Conspiracy and Attempt Allegations

Federal conspiracy statute, 18 U.S.C. § 371, can be a potent tool in investigations and prosecutions. It is possible to face substantial fines and long-term imprisonment without committing a substantive offense. Due to the breadth of these statutes, a prosecutor can argue that you were party to a formal or informal agreement to commit a crime, and any of your alleged co-conspirators executed an “overt act” toward the commission of a federal crime.

Under federal law, the targets of federal investigations can also face charges for attempt in the absence of evidence of a completed criminal offense. Often, charges for attempt carry the same penalties as charges for the allegedly-attempted offense. Individuals and organizations being targeted for federal prosecution must be extremely careful to avoid relying on defense strategies that could expose them to prosecution for an “unsuccessful” crime.

In federal cases, it is not unusual for defendants to face multiple charges for both related and unrelated crimes. While certain federal statutes target specific substantive offenses, such as healthcare fraud or drug trafficking, other statutes impose severe penalties for acts taken in furtherance of, or in conjunction with, specific criminal conduct. Some of the most-common accusations in federal cases are mail fraud, wire fraud, and money laundering. Various other alleged “criminal enterprises” can trigger multiple federal accusations as well.

Confidential Informant or “Co-Conspirator” Testimony

If a federal prosecutor obtains testimony from a confidential informant or an alleged co-conspirator, this can pose a risk in federal criminal cases. If someone else who has a vested interest in the outcome of your case testifies against you, you will need to overcome this testimony as part of your defense.

Sentencing Guidelines

In most federal criminal cases, the potential sentences are outlined in the Federal Sentencing Guidelines. While the Guidelines are not binding, prosecutors and judges often rely on them in determining what penalties to seek and impose in the event of a conviction at trial. However, it is often possible to obtain a below-guideline plea deal or sentence, assuming penalties cannot be avoided entirely. A federal criminal defense lawyer at Spodek Law Group has significant experience protecting clients against the penalties prescribed by the Federal Sentencing Guidelines.
