When to Select a Federal Criminal Attorney

As mentioned above, federal court cases have more convictions. Cases brought before them also are much more complicated and, should a defendant be convicted, have stiffer penalties/sentences. That’s why you should engage a federal court attorney to defend you when you discover that you are being investigated by an agency such as the FBI, the DEA or the Secret Services. Do not wait until you have been charged; you need to hire an attorney when you learn of the investigation.

  • Engaging a law firm that focuses on federal crimes such as Broden & Mickelsen, LLP before charges are brought allows the attorneys to start their own investigation. Witnesses often are much more willing to speak before charges are brought and not as willing afterwards.
  • Hiring your law firm before your indictment means the attorneys can meet with the government’s representatives/agents to assess their case against you.
  • Engaging attorneys prior to being charged with a federal crime also allows your lawyers to possibly make a presentation before the U.S. Attorney’s Office and perhaps persuade prosecutors to drop the charges against you.
  • In addition, if you have hired a lawyer to represent you prior to being indicted, the attorney can arrange for you to surrender yourself should you be charged. This keeps you from being arrested in front of family or co-workers, saving you from considerable embarrassment and your family from having to see you taken away in handcuffs.
