Best Wisconsin Federal Criminal Lawyers

The Devastating Impact of Facing Federal Charges in the United States

Facing federal charges in the United States is a daunting experience that can wreak havoc on a person’s life. When you are charged with a federal crime, it is almost always a felony. The government has unlimited resources, which means they can devote the time and manpower to fully investigate your case. Additionally, the penalties in federal court are typically much higher than state court penalties. Federal charges can carry mandatory minimum prison sentences, such as a 5 or 10-year sentence for a cocaine transaction. If you have a prior felony drug conviction, those penalties can be raised to a mandatory minimum of 20 years.

But don’t lose hope just yet, because at Spodek Law, P.C., our attorneys have been practicing in federal court for years, and we have the experience and expertise to fight for you. We have a track record of success in drug cases and have even convinced the court to dismiss federal gun charges against one of our clients. We are committed to defending your rights and achieving the best possible outcome for your case.

Types of Federal Cases We Handle

Our attorneys represent clients facing all types of serious federal charges in the Eastern and Western Districts of Wisconsin. We have experience in cases involving allegations of bank fraud, drug crimes, healthcare fraud, intellectual property theft, insurance fraud, mail fraud and wire fraud, money laundering, mortgage fraud, public corruption and bribery, securities fraud, tax evasion, theft of government property, and more.

Federal prosecutors will often pursue charges for several related and unrelated offenses. For example, in a healthcare fraud or public corruption case, prosecutors may seek an indictment for mail fraud, wire fraud, and money laundering as well. Even if prosecutors cannot prove that you committed a substantive offense, the federal attempt and conspiracy statutes are written in such a way that you could still be at risk for substantial fines and long-term imprisonment.

The Three Stages of Federal Criminal Prosecution

The federal prosecutorial process involves three primary stages. At Spodek Law, P.C., we deploy defense strategies at each stage of the process that are tailored to the specific procedural aspects, as well as the most recent factual and legal developments in the case.

The first stage is the government’s investigation. Our primary goal is to terminate the investigation without charges being filed. We intervene in the investigation as soon as we are engaged, and we work to quickly assess the facts of the case in order to determine where we are likely to have the greatest opportunity to convince prosecutors not to seek an indictment.

If prosecutors decide to move forward with seeking an indictment, they must first obtain a grand jury subpoena. Once you are subpoenaed to testify before a grand jury, you must begin preparing immediately. There are still several ways to defend against federal indictments, and our attorneys have successfully resolved many of our clients’ cases at this stage of the process.

Following an indictment, formal charges will be filed, and at this point, you will transition from a “target” or “suspect” to a “defendant.” While it is possible that your case will eventually go to verdict, it is also very possible that there will be opportunities to secure a favorable result between the time of your indictment and the date your case is set for trial. At Spodek Law, P.C., we have had indictments dismissed, negotiated pleas that reduced felonies to misdemeanors, and secured “not guilty” verdicts at trial.

Asserting a successful defense requires a comprehensive understanding of the facts and law underlying the allegations against you. At Spodek Law, P.C., we are committed to protecting you and your rights throughout the entire process.
