Experience matters when representing clients in federal court
An encounter with the federal justice system is far different than one involving the Alabama state criminal justice system, even when the charges concerned are nearly identical. One of the distinguishing characteristics of convictions for federal crimes is the relative harshness of the associated consequences; individuals found guilty of federal crimes routinely receive shockingly long prison sentences and become liable for immense fines. Additionally, court procedures in federal courts are significantly different from those involved in Alabama criminal trials and therefore require a different approach when it comes to the criminal defense of those indicted. Finally, merely being accused of a federal crime can permanently compromise a person’s reputation and make them virtually unemployable even if they are ultimately found to be innocent of their charges. If you are facing or suspect you soon will be facing charges related to a federal crime, it is of the utmost importance that you retain an Alabama federal crimes attorney as soon as possible to help you with your case. Hube Dodd is intimately familiar with the unique rules and regulations involved in federal trials and knows how to use federal law in your favor to demonstrate your innocence. He has years of experience aiding clients who have been accused of federal crimes and will put that experience to work on your behalf.
Due to the significant expense and time associated with federal trials, prosecutors seldom seek an indictment unless the evidence they have against a suspect is overwhelming. By this time it may already be much more difficult for your federal crimes attorney to have a jury return a verdict of not guilty. In fact, if you can get a seasoned federal crimes lawyer working on your case while an investigation is pending, they may even be able to persuade federal prosecutors that their efforts are unlikely to bear fruit and convince them to abandon their investigation without seeking an indictment.
