Defending a federal criminal case is significantly different from defending a New York State criminal case.  Federal law and procedure is unique and complicated.  Most state court attorneys have no or limited experience in federal court.  It is imperative for a criminal defendant to hire an experienced lawyer who routinely practices in the federal district where the federal case is  being prosecuted.

Federal prosecutions are often characterized by long investigations, which may go on for several years before an indictment is filed.  Meanwhile, unwitting targets of the federal authorities are vulnerable to make unguarded statements or answering questions that often paint them in an unclear or unfavorable light.

Ideally, persons and businesses targeted for federal investigation should seek legal representation at the first sign of an investigation.  An experienced federal criminal defense attorney can often help clients avoid indictment.  Effective case strategies are necessary throughout each stage of a federal investigation and during the government’s pursuit of criminal charges.
