Skilled Federal Criminal Defense Attorneys
The federal government takes criminal charges extremely seriously, and if you have been arrested or indicted for a federal criminal offense, you stand to face severe penalties that can haunt you for the rest of your life. Federal prosecutors are notoriously tough and tenacious in court and the federal government has the time, money and manpower to investigate and prosecute these crimes to the fullest extent of the law, which can make federal criminal cases particularly difficult to defend. That is why it is so important to retain the services of a criminal defense lawyer with a proven record of success handling criminal cases in the federal court system, one who can stand up to the government, defend your rights and help you get the best outcome possible.

Federal Criminal Cases We Handle
Most criminal charges in California and other states are tried in state courts under state laws, but if you engage in criminal conduct that violates federal law or crosses state lines, or if the crime you are accused of committing is investigated by federal authorities or takes place on federal property, you can expect to face criminal charges in federal court. Federal criminal cases are handled differently than state cases and if you are charged with a crime at the federal level, you can’t rely on the expertise of an attorney who has only limited experience in federal court. The following are some examples of criminal charges Daniel Perlman can defend in federal court:
What Our Criminal Defense Lawyers Can Do for You
Protect Your Rights
If you are facing charges for a federal criminal offense like drug trafficking, money laundering, murder or bankruptcy fraud, there is a great deal at stake. A conviction for a federal offense can carry severe penalties that can impact the rest of your life, possibly including hefty fines and imprisonment in federal prison. We understand that your freedom and your future are on the line, and we will do everything in our power to protect your rights throughout the course of your criminal case. Whether you have received a target letter from the federal government, you have been arrested for a federal offense, or you are preparing for trial or sentencing, it is never too early or too late to protect your rights.
Deal with the Federal Authorities
If you have ever had to deal with a federal agency like the DEA or FBI, you know that federal agents can be aggressive and intimidating, and we don’t believe you should have to take on the added stress of dealing with the federal authorities when facing a criminal charge. When you retain the services of Daniel Perlman, you can rest assured that he will deal with the authorities on your behalf so you can focus your attention on preparing for your case.
Negotiate on Your Behalf
In criminal law, there are three main ways in which a case can be resolved: a case dismissal, a plea agreement or a trial. In certain cases, criminal charges may be dismissed by the prosecution prior to trial, usually due to insufficient evidence, inadmissible evidence or a lack of witness credibility. Depending on the facts of your case, we may be able to convince the prosecutor assigned to your case to drop the charges, if the government’s evidence isn’t strong enough to support the charge. On the other hand, if the evidence against you is overwhelming, we may be able to get your charges reduced or secure a less severe sentence as part of a plea bargain and avoid a long, hard trial. A plea bargain is an agreement between the defense and prosecution in which the defendant agrees to plead guilty or no contest in return for a reduced charge or a more lenient sentence. Having an experienced federal criminal defense attorney to negotiate with the prosecution on your behalf is crucial if the government has a strong case against you and you don’t want to take your chances at trial.
Fight for You at Trial
If you decide not to agree to a plea bargain, your case will go to a jury trial, during which your attorney will present your case to the court and speak on your behalf. Federal criminal law is complex and complicated, and statistics show that more than 90% of defendants who are prosecuted in federal court are convicted, which is why you should only trust your defense to a skilled federal criminal defense attorney. A good defense attorney will conduct a thorough investigation of your case, assess its strengths and weaknesses, and use that information to develop a credible defense strategy. Daniel Perlman is committed to aggressively fighting for your rights and representing your best interests throughout the course of your criminal case, and that includes defending you at trial.
Build a Credible Defense
Facing trial in federal court can be overwhelming and intimidating, and only with a knowledgeable federal criminal defense attorney on your side can you stand up against the federal government and put forth a strong defense in your case. A good defense strategy either explains your actions or proposes an alternative version of events in such a way that it raises reasonable doubt in the minds of the jurors as to your guilt. In order to get a conviction in any criminal case, the government must prove its case beyond a reasonable doubt, meaning there can be no other logical explanation for the evidence presented at trial except that the defendant is guilty, and if your attorney can prevent the government from meeting its burden of proof, you may be able to obtain an acquittal at trial. When it comes down to it, the outcome of your criminal case hinges on the credibility of your defense strategy, and a defense attorney with experience handling cases like yours in federal court will know what defense approach offers the best chance of success based on the specific circumstances of your case.
