When the Federal Government investigates a case, they can bring immense resources to the investigation. Federal law also brings the possibility of Mandatory Minimum sentences and an incredibly complex and comprehensive Federal Sentencing Guidelines. The Guidelines cover almost every aspect of a person’s offense to make the sentence as tailored as possible.
Often the discovery in a federal prosecution produced includes thousands of recordings of phone calls, text messages, video recordings, and financial records.
It can be overwhelming to face the power of the Government bearing down on you. I take these cases apart, look them over, and help my clients analyze whether a trial or a guilty plea is the most beneficial.
