San Diego Federal Criminal Defense Lawyer
Federal Crimes Attorney
The federal criminal justice system is a different world. From the deadlines for presenting motions to the expectations for discovery of evidence and sentencing guidelines, if you have been charged with a federal crime, or are under investigation by a federal grand jury, you are entering a high-powered world.
Going Up Against the Federal Resources
It is not unusual for federal investigators to gather evidence for several months or a year prior to indicting a person on federal charges. That means they have had ample time to put their case together. Your defense attorney will need to act quickly and intelligently to gather information, file motions to suppress prejudicial evidence or change venue and prepare the strongest case possible for an appropriate plea agreement or court trial. The law firm you hire to represent you will need the professional skill, experience and access to resources such as independent expert witnesses.
Federal Grand Jury Investigation
Prior to an arrest, the suspect is typically notified that he or she is under investigation for a federal charge and faces a possible grand jury indictment. If you are under investigation, don’t wait to find out what the feds will do next. You need experienced legal defense to prepare your case and present evidence in your favor. Even if you are not the target of a grand jury investigation, but have been identified as a witness and subject to testimony, you will want to protect yourself from incriminating yourself.
Federal Sentencing Guidelines
Perhaps the single biggest difference between the state and federal criminal court system is the sentencing guidelines. Put simply, federal sentences are tough and require a separate court process after a conviction. In the time between the final jury verdict or guilty plea until the hearing, your attorney will have to do everything possible to prove that the harshest penalty is unwarranted.
