At LEWIS & DICKSTEIN, P.L.L.C., we have decades of experience practicing criminal defense, including defending and protecting clients against federal criminal charges across the United States. Federal criminal defense lawyers must thoroughly understand federal laws, court rules, and court procedures. Any time a crime is committed on federal property or because of a violation of federal law, it may be charged as a federal crime. The lawyers at our top Michigan Federal Criminal Defense Law Firm provide representation to individuals who have been charged with or are under investigation for the following types of federal crimes:

The laws that govern federal crimes tend to be very complex, so it is vital that your lawyer has a thorough understanding of these laws and can interpret them effectively. At LEWIS & DICKSTEIN, P.L.L.C., we have a great deal of experience handling federal cases throughout the United States. We appear almost daily in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan, and we’ve handled federal criminal matters multiple times in the Western District. The essential advantage of hiring a criminal defense law firm, as opposed to a single lawyer, is that we have multiple lawyers. They collaborate regarding every case we handle and work together to achieve results that a solo practitioner would be unlikely to accomplish.

Experience with Assistant United States Lawyers

With decades of experience handling many cases in the United States District Courts in Detroit, Bay City, Flint, Port Huron, and elsewhere in Michigan, we have worked with most Assistant United States Attorneys in the Eastern District. We have made amicable, respectful connections with the prosecutors through our lawyers’ collective experience with plea bargaining, obtaining dismissals, and taking cases to trial. Their respect for our firm helps us achieve extraordinary results.

You Will Need Seasoned Federal Criminal Defense Lawyers to Represent You

After being charged with a federal offense, you will need a seasoned lawyer to represent you, preferably before the government files a complaint or obtains a Grand Jury indictment. Due to the nature of federal crimes and the virtually unlimited budgets of the various investigative agencies, law enforcement thoroughly investigates these offenses before they make it to court. Federal investigations can take years, and long delays do not mean prosecution or indictment is not forthcoming. Because a federal investigation can take some time, your lawyer must start preserving and protecting evidence that may be favorable to you before it becomes lost or unavailable.

Federal Precharge Investigation, Consultation, and Representation

Having a Michigan Federal Crimes Defense Lawyer to represent you during the investigation phase can be extremely beneficial. In some cases, stopping charges and preventing an indictment might be possible. With a thorough investigation of the potential defenses in your case, we can find and present facts or evidence to convince the United States Attorney’s Office to drop a case or reduce pending charges before the matter goes to court. Multiple clients have avoided federal prosecution through thorough and proactive pre-indictment representation.

Many precharge strategies are available when charges are unavoidable, and our client wishes to accept responsibility and seek the lowest possible charges and sentence. For example, our precharge representation attorneys can negotiate for a plea to an “information” instead of forcing the government to seek an indictment. By agreeing to a resolution pursuant to an “information,” the government will agree to reduced or fewer charges and a sentence considering our client’s acceptance of responsibility. By accepting responsibility early, a defendant ensures lower sentencing guidelines and increased odds of avoiding incarceration when possible. Precharge representation in healthcare fraud cases can particularly benefit healthcare professionals facing federal charges.

We Provide the Best Possible Defense and Protection for Our Clients in Federal Court

A great federal defense lawyer will protect your rights and help ensure the government cannot use illegally obtained evidence against you. As seasoned federal criminal defense lawyers, we have the skills to negotiate with federal prosecutors to minimize potential charges and will always work tirelessly to get sentences reduced or dismissed. Over several decades, we have achieved sentences with limited or no incarceration, even in cases where imprisonment seemed unavoidable. Obtaining extraordinary and lenient sentences does not just happen; it takes years of dedication and experience to become among the most effective and respected federal criminal defense law firms in Southeastern Michigan.

In addition to prison and employment problems, a criminal conviction can have collateral consequences, such as loss of firearm rights, losing your driver’s license, changes in child custody, civil lawsuits, damage to your reputation, deportation, and more. We know that you want someone who will represent you like they would their own family member. If you work with our lawyers, this is the care and dedication you will get from LEWIS & DICKSTEIN, P.L.L.C.
