If you’re facing criminal charges from the federal government, you’ve found yourself in a very serious situation. Whether you’re accused of a white collar crime, a drug charge, a sex crime, or a violent crime, you’re likely facing steep punishments in the form of extremely high fines, long prison sentences, or possibly both. You’re also likely to be up against an incredibly skilled and experienced prosecution team. With all of these factors taken together, the process you’re facing is going to be a very challenging one.

You need the expert Los Angeles federal criminal defense attorneys at Mishra X Trial Lawyers.

In this post, we’ll give you a better sense of your situation, what to look for in a defense attorney, and why we believe we may be the best choice for you.
The statistics of federal crime convictions
We won’t waste any time making it clear to you how severe the situation of facing a criminal charge is. According to the Pew Research Center, 90% of federal criminal defendants in 2018 were found guilty and 8% had their cases dismissed. Only 2% actually went to trial at all, and of these, less than 1% won their case. These statistics paint a picture where the odds are vastly against you in such a circumstance.
It’s also worth noting some of the potential punishments you may face when you’re convicted of a federal crime. They’re typically more severe than similar or equivalent charges in a lower court, but the exact sentence you receive takes into account a number of factors which are outlined in the United States Sentencing Guidelines.
One example of a punishment you could receive is for cybercrimes, for which first-time offenders face up to 10 years in prison and repeat offenders face 20 years for each charge. Another example is identity theft, which often goes hand-in-hand with a cybercrime like hacking and often carries a charge of up to 15 years in prison.
Choosing a defense attorney
Under such serious circumstances, your best chance at a positive outcome in your case is finding a defense attorney with the skill and experience to represent you effectively. Finding such an attorney, though, may be easier said than done. Many people find a defense attorney by referral or personal acquaintance. If you don’t know one, or at least don’t know one qualified for a federal case, you’ll need to know what to look for as you do your research.
Generally, you’ll want to look for an attorney who’s experienced and has a track record of positive results. There are a variety of ways in which a defense attorney can specialize in a particular area of practice, so you’ll also want one who has that experience and positive track record trying cases like yours. Ideally, you’ll want one whose clients are happy to recommend them to you and have faced similar charges to yours.
