The Federal Lawyer- Understanding the Complexity of Federal Crimes and When to Bow Out

Recently, another law firm referred a complicated federal drug case to my office for review.  This firm did not handle the case initially, but rather elected to do the appropriate thing and forward a referral as this case did not fall within its practice area.  Upon inquiry, it became apparent that I was not the first attorney to handle this particular matter as the client terminated his relationship with prior counsel.  Now at first glance, any federal criminal lawyer worth his or her salt would immediately question the recent termination of counsel as many defendants go lawyer hopping when unhappy.  To my amazement, this was not the case.  The client was simply perplexed by the lack of attention to his/her case and the apparent confusion with building his defense to charges which could result in a 20 year sentence.  All of this brings me to my point- Federal Drug Charges, including Distribution, Conspiracy, RICO, Possession and Manufacturing all require the requisite legal acumen and experience to successfully navigate a daunting Federal system largely skewed in favor of conviction.  Clients deserve a professional, diligent response to federal charges.  Accordingly, it is all the more important that lawyers who do not handle Federal cases refer them out or take the time to study the many differences in Federal law versus State matters.

Federal Criminal Charges should not be taken lightly.  Drug crimes in Federal court are inherently more complex in nature,  involve serious criminal acts and then the possibility of serious  penalties- and all require a keen understanding of the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, applicable statute, as well as access to a host of legal resources all designed to protect your interests.  The federal criminal justice system is already daunting enough not to have a thorough understanding of the defined and rigid set of penalties for Federal Drug Crimes and related offenses.  With all of the Government resources, a defendant automatically walks into this arena at a disadvantage.   With federal crimes, it’s important to have a legal team with the resources, experience and level of skill necessary to represent your interests.  Not doing so could mean your life.
