You Will Need Seasoned Federal Defense Attorneys to Represent You
After being charged with a federal offense, you will need a seasoned attorney to represent you, preferably before a complaint is filed or an indictment is issued by a Grand Jury. Due to the nature of federal crimes, these offenses are thoroughly investigated before they ever actually make it to court. Federal investigations can take years, and long delays do not mean that a prosecution or indictment is not forthcoming. Because a federal investigation can take some time, it is critical that your lawyer start to preserve and protect evidence that may be favorable to you before it becomes lost or unavailable.
Having a Michigan Federal Crimes Defense Attorney to represent you during the investigation phase can be very beneficial to the future status of your case. In some cases, it may be possible to stop charges and prevent an indictment. With a thorough investigation of the potential defenses in your case, we may be able to find facts or evidence that convinces the government to drop a case before it goes to court. We have had multiple clients avoid federal prosecution through thorough and proactive pre-indictment representation.
