Not all lawyers have the skills and experience to take on the federal government and win. When selecting legal counsel, keep the following tips in mind:
Performing due diligence when choosing a federal criminal defense lawyer is time well spent. Be thorough in your research – your future depends on it.
To understand how a skilled lawyer defends their client in a federal criminal case, it helps to understand the basic stages of the federal criminal justice process:
Long before any charges are filed, federal agents begin building a case. This may involve undercover operations, informants, surveillance, subpoenas, and raids. If you know you are under investigation, contacting a lawyer immediately is critical. They can engage with investigators and prosecutors right away to protect your interests.
If investigators believe they have sufficient evidence, they will obtain an arrest warrant or grand jury indictment. This brings official federal charges. After arrest, your case will be assigned a federal prosecutor. Your lawyer will analyze the charges against you and explain the potential penalties.
This crucial stage involves your defense team reviewing the prosecution’s evidence and investigating the case against you. Your lawyer will file motions to obtain evidence and probe for weak spots. Thorough discovery lays the foundation for your defense strategy.
Prior to trial, your lawyer may file motions asking the court to throw out illegally obtained evidence, reveal more prosecution evidence, or dismiss improper charges. Strong pretrial motions can completely change the trajectory of your case.
Many federal cases end with a plea bargain rather than trial. Your lawyer may negotiate with prosecutors to get charges dropped or reduced in exchange for a guilty plea. The better the defense case looks, the more leverage your lawyer has to secure a favorable bargain.
If no plea agreement is reached, your case will go to trial before a judge and jury. Your lawyer will vigorously argue for acquittal in court. In some cases, losing at trial leads to harsher penalties, so going to trial is always a calculated risk. An experienced attorney can advise if it’s the right move.
If convicted, your lawyer’s job becomes arguing for the absolute minimum sentence allowed by federal guidelines. This involves presenting mitigating factors about your character, background, and offense to the judge. Skilled federal criminal lawyers know how to creatively argue for leniency.
Having a top-notch federal criminal defense lawyer in your corner from the very start increases the chances of a positive outcome. For most defendants, the right legal strategy and advocacy makes all the difference.
