Federal Crime Defense Attorney
Our legal team provides comprehensive federal defense for individuals facing a wide range of charges, not only throughout California, but also throughout the United States. We understand the lasting consequences associated with criminal convictions.
At the Law Office of Edward M. Robinson, our federal criminal defense attorney possesses sophisticated federal court experience. He understands that state court procedures should not be used in federal court, and they can be harmful to clients' cases. Additionally, federal court employs pretrial detention, and there is not necessarily a right to bail. To avoid pretrial detention, a lawyer must get involved early on in the case.
Federal Court Advocacy
Our law firm focuses on representing individuals in federal court from pre-investigation through sentencing and their appeal if necessary. Our legal team is directed by attorney Edward M. Robinson, a certified specialist in criminal law certified by the State of California Board of Legal Specialization. His 25 years of experience with federal court procedures and rules enable us to help minimize our clients' consequences. We understand that approaching a federal case the same way as a state court case could create problems for our clients. Our extensive experience includes appropriate strategies and representation for federal court:
- Plea bargains
- Jury trial rules
- Sentencing rules
- Rules on appeal
- Pre-indictment issues
Notably, pre-indictment plea negotiations are counter intuitive in federal court. Defendants who hire state lawyers often receive longer prison terms than they would have if they had proper representation from a federal court attorney.
Federal Sentencing Laws and Guidelines
Many state court practitioners do not understand the interplay between sentencing laws and the sentencing guidelines. There is a unique interplay between the sentencing laws and guidelines that gives judges leeway and sentencing discretion to send defendants to treatment programs. These agreements are oftentimes arrived at pre-indictment.
Our negotiating skills and understanding of federal sentencing laws and guidelines enable us to obtain favorable pretrial results. We consult with pretrial experts to help support our efforts and improve our clients' outlook. We take an aggressive pre-indictment approach to all cases, which helps us provide superior results for case settlements, dismissals, and trial and appellate results.
