On behalf of Michael A. Gottlieb, P.A. posted in felonies on Friday, September 1, 2017.
Federal criminal charges have to be handled in a much different way than state level criminal charges. When you are dealing with the federal government, you are up against a prosecutor who has vast resources to investigate a crime. In almost every case, charges won’t be levied until there is ample evidence.
We understand that you might be frightened at the prospect of facing these serious charges. No matter what type of federal charge you face, from drug charges to white collar crime charges, you have to be prepared to fight a very difficult and complex battle.
One of the first things that you should do when you are facing these charges is to find a lawyer who is going to fight for you and who is familiar with the federal court system. From there, you need to think about each option that is presented to you. There is a good chance that you will be able to resolve your case through a plea deal.
If you are considering a plea deal, remember that you must admit to the crimes of which you are accused. You do this under oath, so if you are innocent, you shouldn’t entertain the idea of a plea deal.
We realize that you might need some information about the charges you are facing and the ways you can handle them. We are here to explain everything to you and walk beside you as you venture through the federal criminal justice system. We will fight for your rights and work hard to resolve your case in a timely manner.
