New Jersey Criminal Attorney - Federal Criminal Defense in NJ & PA
If you have been charged with a crime in the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey or the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, it is critical to retain a criminal defense attorney familiar with the federal criminal justice system. Federal charges and procedures are significantly different from state court charges- and frequently much more complex to defend for a number of reasons.
The federal system has separate rules of procedure that dictate limitations on available discovery and strict time-frames upon which the case must proceed before the District Court Judge. The federal system also operates under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines which are a complex labyrinth of rules regarding the appropriate recommended sentence.
I am highly knowledgeable about the Federal Rules of Procedure and the Federal Sentencing Guidelines. I know that federal prosecutors are tough because they rarely proceed with a case unless they believe they will win and have the tremendous resources of the federal government backing the prosecution. In short, convictions are aggressively pursued on cases that are chosen for prosecution. It takes a skilled and experienced criminal attorney to defend your interests in the federal system either before the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey or the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. I have the skills and experience as an NJ criminal lawyer to provide an aggressive defense. I invite you to contact my office to review your case.
