Beverly Hills Federal Criminal Lawyer

inne-rpage-seperator

Federal law enforcement agencies make over 150,000 arrests each year. And California is one of five states where most federal arrests happen.

There are far more than 150,000 federal criminal cases each year. That is because other agencies may refer cases to the federal government.  Many state crimes may also be prosecuted as federal crimes. Drug, weapons and immigration violations make up the vast majority of these cases.

Our Beverly Hills team of attorneys is adept at defending federal crimes.

Not all lawyers are. The Department of Justice reports a 91% conviction rate. 78% of those convictions result in prison time. Federal court is a tougher place to defend a case.

In federal court, the prosecutor will be a top-notch professional with a strong track record. Law enforcement will have had nearly unlimited resources to investigate your case. Sentences are harsher.

You need a strong defense attorney whose track record is on par with the prosecutors’. You also need someone who can do a lot with fewer resources than the federal government. A defense lawyer who can investigate a federal case while spending a fraction of what the prosecution spends is vital. You need to retain someone who knows what will need to be done to unravel the prosecution’s story.

When is it time to hire a federal criminal lawyer?

It is wise to retain a federal criminal lawyer as soon as you have reason to believe you’re under investigation for a crime.

This is one reason why most people who are facing federal charges hire private defense lawyers. A private lawyer can get involved at any time, and advise you at any time. A federal public defender can only get involved after you’ve already been charged.

Did you know it’s a federal crime to skydive while drunk? While there are some truly bizarre federal laws on the books, most federal cases involve laws you are most likely familiar with. We have successfully defended clients charged with:

  • Drug trafficking.
  • Tax fraud.
  • Wire fraud.
  • Mail fraud.
  • Human trafficking.
  • Child pornography charges.
  • Immigration crimes.

Some of these crimes have even higher federal conviction rates than DoJ’s average.

  • 92% of drug and property crimes are convicted.
  • 94% of weapons crimes are convicted.
  • 98% of immigration defendants are convicted.

Of course, not all these cases are going to trial. Only about 2% of federal criminal cases ever make it to court. But the statistics are still indicative of the uphill battle many federal criminal defendants face.

Our federal criminal defense attornies speak Spanish.

This is important because Hispanic defendants account for more than half of federal cases. Some of those defendants will not speak English.

Nuestro abogados de defensa criminal hablamos español.

Estás muy importante, porque los acusados hispano cuentas más de la mitad de casos criminales federales.

If you are trying to find representation for a loved one who does not speak English you can rest easy knowing there will be no language barrier. And if you speak English, but are more comfortable with Spanish, know that we are happy to discuss your case in your native language.

An Introduction to Federal Court

Beverly Hills is located in the Western Division of the Central District of the federal court system. The local courthouse is located at:

312 N Spring St., Los Angeles, CA 90012

Most of the time, your defense team will be facing off against an assistant U.S. attorney rather than the U.S. attorney herself. Don’t let the assistant title fool you. Most AUSAs don’t come to the position without four to eight years of experience, usually working as ADAs. Some have worked at a state Attorney General’s or City Attorney’s office. Candidates usually displayed outstanding achievement at highly regarded law schools. They also didn’t reach the position without receiving recommendations from other professionals.

You will want to make sure the federal criminal defense attorney you retain is ready to go up against these talented prosecutors. It’s important to ask how many federal cases your prospective attorney has handled in the past. You can also ask about what case outcomes they’ve achieved.

Why do you need a federal defense attorney as early as possible?

Retaining a defense attorney while you are under investigation can protect you from being charged at all. We can be present any time a federal investigator says he or she wants to talk to you. They may tell you-you’re not the one being arrested. They may make it seem like they think you’re a witness. And if you don’t have an attorney with you, this false sense of security can help you condemn yourself.

If federal investigators show up with a search warrant you must let them in. But nothing is stopping you from calling a defense attorney while they search.

Remember, you don’t have to be arrested or charged to exercise your right to silence and your right to an attorney. These are fundamental rights, guaranteed by the very same Constitution all federal authorities are sworn to protect.

How will you know? Many of the signs are blatant. Sometimes the federal government even sends you a letter stating that you are under investigation. Sometimes they do this because they are hoping you’ll give them information on a much bigger target to stay out of prison. This is not a bad way to avoid charges, but you will want to have an attorney present any time you are offered any kind of deal. Otherwise, you could lose all your leverage only to find you didn’t have adequate protection and find yourself facing charges anyway.

No matter what tips you off the response is the same. Retain a federal criminal defense attorney at the earliest opportunity.

We’ll be happy to answer any and all questions you might have. We’ll give you our honest assessment of your case so you can decide how to proceed.
