How to Prepare for a Proffer Meeting: Insights from Attorney Todd Spodek
As a nationwide law firm with extensive experience in criminal defense cases, Spodek Law Group and Attorney Todd Spodek have helped countless individuals navigate the complex and frightening process of being the subject of a criminal investigation. One crucial aspect of this process is the proffer meeting, where you meet with the prosecutor and provide information about the case in question. In this article, we will provide you with tips on how to prepare for this meeting and get the best possible outcome for your case.
Trust Your Attorney
First and foremost, it is essential to trust your attorney. They are there to protect you, and their expertise is invaluable. While it may be embarrassing to reveal certain details about your involvement in the case being investigated and the other people who are subjects of the investigation and their relationship to you, remember that your attorney has likely heard similar stories before. If you are not sure whether a particular detail is relevant or important, tell your attorney and let them decide. Being completely truthful with your attorney is crucial for achieving the optimal result for your case. Also, lying to the prosecutor during the proffer is a federal crime, so it’s critical to be completely honest.
Be Humble and Sincere
Humility is a crucial component of effectively communicating and assisting your attorney in preparing for the proffer meeting. Even if you don’t think that you committed a crime or that the prosecutor is treating you unfairly, accepting responsibility for any mistakes of judgment will demonstrate that you are taking the situation seriously. This approach will also help you make an effective proffer as the prosecutor needs to see that you are acknowledging your role in any criminal activity.
Get Emotional Support
During this stressful time, it’s essential to have emotional support from someone you can trust and rely on. Your attorney is your professional representative, not a friend or loved one. If you are married, your spouse is a good candidate for this role because everything you tell them is privileged. If you confide in a person who is not your spouse, these conversations will not be privileged, so it’s important not to share any details of your case. Having a close friend or family member to support you can help your stress levels during this time.
Stay Off Social Media
It’s imperative not to post anything about your case on any social media platform. Keep your trusted circle small, and do not discuss any details of the case with anyone outside of your attorney and emotional support system.
Find Activities to Take Your Mind Off Your Case
Criminal cases can move slowly, and it’s essential to find activities to take your mind off the case. Participating in social activities, watching movies, reading books, or finding other hobbies you enjoy will help alleviate stress. It’s also crucial to take care of your physical health during this period.
Make Your Opinions Known
Remember, you are part of the team whose goal is to achieve the optimal outcome for you. While your attorney is the expert, you lived the facts and are the primary source of information about the events as they unfolded. Make your opinions known and respect your attorney’s expertise.
Consider the Question Before Answering
When you arrive at the proffer meeting, agents and prosecutors present will tell you their specific concerns and questions about your case. Your attorney will prepare you for answering the questions honestly while not offering additional facts beyond those requested. Take your time to consider the question asked before answering. Seek clarification if necessary, and correct factual inaccuracies in the government’s questions or statements calmly and respectfully.
Leave Enough Time for the Proffer Meeting
It’s essential to leave enough time for the proffer session. Clear the entire day if possible, as the meeting may take longer than expected. If you are anxious about child care or getting to another appointment, it may come across as nervousness or untruthfulness in your testimony. Prosecutors are not required to offer you the chance to proffer, and they are likely to be unimpressed if you end the session early.
Properly Prepare for the Proffer Meeting
Preparing for the proffer meeting with the prosecutor is crucial for achieving the best possible outcome for your case. To help you properly prepare for the meeting, we have created a table outlining the necessary steps to take:
Step 1 Trust your attorney, who is there to protect you.
Step 2 Be humble and sincere, acknowledging your role in any criminal activity.
Step 3 Get emotional support from someone you trust and rely on.
Step 4 Stay off social media and keep your trusted circle small.
Step 5 Find activities to take your mind off your case.
Step 6 Make your opinions known while respecting your attorney’s expertise.
