Federal Criminal Defense Attorney in Chicago
Chicago Federal Criminal Defense Attorney
Federal criminal cases are often sophisticated crimes that involve a long government investigation. For example, state law enforcement officers will often initiate an arrest after a single drug purchase, and state prosecutors will approve charges after a single drug purchase. While federal law enforcement agencies, such as the DEA or Health and Human Services will usually conduct a more extensive investigation. Because federal criminal, and federal civil, investigations often span many years and result in thousands of pages of documents, you need a federal criminal defense attorney who will take the time and energy to thoroughly review the criminal discovery provided and develop that most confident, aggressive, and yet realistic defense possible. Federal criminal cases will often have electronic surveillance, ranging from recorded telephone conversations to undercover video and audio records. When hiring a federal criminal defense attorney make sure that your attorney will spend the time necessary to review all of the evidence presented by the federal prosecutors.
