Even though the general principles of criminal defense and trial skills are the same in a Federal criminal court as in a State court, the procedures in rules and practice are very different. It is very important to get representation before the Prosecutor files an Indictment. There are different things an attorney can do:

  • Negotiate a pre-charging disposition. Often, it is more difficult to drop a count that may carry a minimum mandatory sentence once it is filed in court. Therefore, having an attorney speak to the Prosecutor before the charges are officially filed can be a very good tactic.
  • Arrange the details for bail prior to arrest which allows the defendant not to spend time in custody before the first court appearance. Having a client self-surrender very often lowers the amount of bond and the money that needs to be posted for bail.
  • Complete all the paperwork necessary for Federal Bond while the client is out of custody.
  • In certain cases where a defendant chooses to do so, pre-indictment time is the best time to cooperate for a reduced sentence. There have been some positive changes in the Federal Sentencing Guidelines recently. Our attorneys can review your case and explain how the new changes may impact the guidelines in your case. For example, the Federal Sentencing has recently passed a bill that will reduce the drug quantity guidelines.

If you get arrested in criminal court, you will have an initial appearance or bond hearing within 24 hours of your arrest. Unless you re charged with a non-bondable or domestic violence related charge, you can bond out prior to seeing a judge. Your next court date will be an arraignment where you will plead not guilty to charges against you. It is imperative that you hire a layer prior to the State making a filing decision so that your attorney could attempt to get charges dismissed against you. 

If you are being called by the police to come in and give them a statement, please call an attorney immediately. Any statement you give to the police will most likely be used against you.

Property owners are liable if you get hurt on their property. 

If you were the victim of a crime at a commercial establishment, you might need a negligent security attorney. Examples of negligent security include inadequate lighting, locks not working, a lack of surveillance cameras, a lack of security personnel. 

The elements of a negligent security case are:

  • The defendant has a duty to provide basic security measures for their property;
  • The defendant failed to provide adequate negligent security for their property ; and,
  • The plaintiff suffered an injury due to the defendant’s failure to adequately provide basic security measures. 

The defendant in a negligent security case may be the owner or manager of a commercial property such as a store, parking lot, hotel, or any place the public visits.
