You should also hire a lawyer immediately for juvenile crimes or for charges of serious sex crimes, including sexual assault and rape, which could also result in prison sentences.
Federal crimes, which are crimes against the U.S. government, are handled in federal court and are generally treated much more harshly. Types of federal crimes include white collar crimes such as embezzlement and fraud, serious cases of drug crimes or weapons crimes, and even some computer crimes. Without the defense of an attorney with understanding of the federal court process, you may be wrongfully convicted, so contact a defense attorney today.
Don't be fooled into thinking there is no hope when you are charged. We have extensive practice in this area and we know the weak points that can be involved in a charge. Over the years we have seen far too many individuals backed into a corner by law enforcement that is simply looking to make a conviction, rather than discover the truth. There are many areas that need to be investigated in a case and if you do not work with a lawyer that understands what these key components are, you may reduce your chance of having the case against you reduced or dismissed.
Even after a conviction, Sawl Law Group may still be able to assist you. If you believe that your trial was unfair and that your sentence should be reversed, we could counsel and represent you throughout the appeals process. Expungement may also be a possibility if you have successfully completed parole (if applicable) and have not committed any more crimes since your conviction. You need a representative that is aggressive, devoted and adept in the legal field. Those are only three of the functions that an attorney at our office is able to perform. Contact our firm today to schedule a free case evaluation and start putting together a defense strategy with the help of a skilled defense lawyer.
