San Francisco Federal Criminal Lawyers

Federal criminal charges are the most serious legal issues any defendants face in the U.S. court system. Not only are the prosecutors generally more zealous than state court prosecutors, but the potential outcome of a case can be devastating on the defendant and their families. Many times federal charges are the result of an association with another suspect or filed using borderline or circumstantial evidence that only indicates possible criminal activity when very little intent. Intent is a component of the law that federal prosecutors may not consider when they are pursuing a conviction in earnest. Even in minor cases where a case settlement can be negotiated, punishment for federal criminal charges always poses the potential for a significant prison sentence in a federal facility, not to mention extensive fines that tend to dwarf fines imposed in a state court.

Federal charges are very common in the northern California federal district, and the courts prosecute all defendants aggressively at the national level. The volume of federal statutes are massive and the government has all of the advantages in a federal charge case. Because all federal criminal charges have the potential for a jail sentence, every federal defendant is required to retain effective legal counsel or have a public defender or pro bono attorney appointed to them. This rarely bodes well for the defendant, even at the federal level, and having an experienced personal private San Francisco federal criminal lawyer who can contest the material evidence is always the best path to solid representation and potential case settlement with minimal personal damage.
