New Jersey Federal Criminal Defense Lawyer
When you are charged with a crime in the Federal Courts, you are facing the government of the United States. The sentencing consequences are often more severe in the federal courts than they are in the NJ State Courts. The rules of evidence and procedure are often not favorable to the defense, and the US Attorney can bring formidable investigative assets to develop their case against you. If you are being charged with a crime in federal court, consult immediately with a knowledgeable criminal defense specialist.
If you are under investigation or have been charged with a crime in the U.S. District Court, contact N.J. Certified Criminal Trial Attorney Howard Bailey at 973-982-1200 for a free consultation to discuss what needs to be done to protect your rights and your freedom.
Why You Need a N.J. Certified Criminal Trial Attorney
Howard Bailey is one of the few lawyers in N.J. who have been designated by the N.J. Supreme Court as a criminal defense specialist. While there are approximately 85,000 attorneys in New Jersey, only about 250 of them have been awarded this certification. Becoming certified requires a lawyer to dedicate a large part of their practice to the field of criminal law, requires them to regularly attend criminal defense seminars, requires them to represent a large number of clients charged with criminal cases from arraignment through trial and sentencing, and requires them to pass a written examination which tests the scope of their knowledge and experience. Think of it this way, when you are charged with a crime that can result in you being locked up for decades, don’t you want your lawyer to be someone who has proven their commitment, knowledge and experience in the field of criminal defense to the highest State Court of New Jersey?
Defending Against the Federal Government
When you are charged with a crime in the federal courts, go back to basic defense and build from there. DO NOT TALK TO THE FEDS! Say I WANT A LAWYER! If you are asked to sign a Miranda waiver, write I WANT A LAWYER! STOP TRYING TO EXPLAIN WHAT HAPPENED as anything you say can and will be used against you. Once you have asserted your RIGHT TO REMAIN SILENT, protect yourself by consulting immediately with a knowledgeable certified criminal defense lawyer who can explain what needs to be done to protect your rights and your freedom.
