If you have been charged with a federal crime in Detroit, there is no time to spare. The quicker that you obtain an experienced defense attorney, the better. It becomes harder and harder to dismiss cases as time ticks on. Evidence can spoil. Witnesses can become unavailable. And phases of the pre-trial proceedings can pass by without proper legal work done. The federal courts are not very forgiving and have limited appellate opportunities.
At our Detroit law firm, we pride ourselves in being thorough and engineering the highest quality of defense work available. Our decades of experience helps us to know what works and what is a waste of time. We will find the strongest defense strategy possible and pursue it vigorously on your behalf. Whether this requires us to hire the leading forensic experts or private investigators, we make sure that no stone is left unturned. And because we have developed a working foundation, you are getting more value for your money. We have already overcome the learning curve and don’t fritter away your money on endless research and figuring out the basics.
Cases that we handle:
The first opportunity that we have to assist you is when police want to interrogate you. Federal agents can ask you questions informally without reading you your rights if they don’t arrest you. They can secretly record these conversations and may choose to pursue this method if they are sketchy about probable cause.
If you are formally arrested, they must read you the Miranda rights warning regarding your right to remain silent. In almost every case, it is best to remain silent. However, if you don’t have an attorney present to defend you, they may try to use coercive methods to manipulate you into talking. They can use incentives like guaranteed lower sentence for your cooperation, the ability to leave if you cooperate, and other tricks that wear you down.
It is a fine line of when a confession or statement becomes involuntary. The danger in speaking with police, even if you are completely innocent, is that they will twist your words around and may try to submit hearsay statements regarding what you told them at trial. In some cases, clients may have some associations with criminal activity or inadvertently were involved without intent but can be easily convicted if the officials twist and manipulate the evidence enough.
You will be able to bail out within 72 hours of your arrest in most cases. Unless there is a murder charge or serious risk of flight, bail should be granted in nearly every case. Bailing out will give you an opportunity to organize your affairs and to assist in compiling any useful evidence in your favor. We can help lower the bail amount to get you out fast.
If you don’t have an attorney already, you will need one for the next hearing. Within 10 days of your arrest, the prosecutor will be required to demonstrate probable cause. Probable cause exists when the affidavit of the arresting officer establishes that there is a reasonable certainty that you committed the offense.
A skilled defense attorney can deflate any presumptions and persuade the court to dismiss weak cases at this point. A weak case is one where an element is speculative, and there is no firm manner of proving it at trial possible. If the chief witness says that you may have been the getaway driver of a bank robbery but she did not see your face. This, without more, is not probable cause.
The next phase involves discovery requests and other pre-trial motions to suppress evidence or have the case thrown out for constitutional violations. We can work hard to preserve your claims for appeal and to ensure fair proceedings. Finally, you will be faced with the option of a trial or plea bargain.
In 97 percent of federal cases, the defendants plead guilty in exchange for leniency. The determining factor of the plea bargain is how strong the defense may be if the case goes to trial. Ultimately, you will be sentenced according to mandatory minimums or whatever is agreed upon in the plea bargain. Let our law firm help you obtain the best results in any situation by building a strong and thorough defense.
