Standing Strong Against Prosecutors With Experienced Federal Criminal Defense Representation

It is important to note that federal law enforcement agents and federal prosecutors have substantial resources. Often, a federal investigation takes many months, and sometimes years. Individuals may not be aware of the investigation until later in the process. If a federal agent knocks on your door, or otherwise contacts you, it is prudent to seek the guidance and representation of an experienced defense lawyer. If you have been indicted, time is of the essence in seeking representation.

Not all lawyers have experience in federal court, nor experience with federal law, the federal rules, and the federal sentencing guidelines. While criminal defense and constitutional principles in state and federal court have many similarities, the stakes in federal court are much higher. Federal criminal defense attorney Sergio Sanchez has substantial experience in federal court, and understands the nuances that specifically apply. From day one, it is critical that your lawyer has a strong command of the procedures and federal statutes, including the big picture issues that can arise from the federal sentencing guidelines. What may seem to be a favorable path the follow, may include unforeseen collateral consequences, if the big picture is not taken into account from the beginning.
