The federal criminal justice system can be daunting and scary for individuals accused of crimes. Federal criminal charges are serious matters which should never be taken lightly. Being under investigation for suspected federal criminal acts can be stressful. Do not let the law be used against you. Do not let investigative agents or the federal prosecutor’s office bully you into divulging details about situations they are investigating or into accepting any plea deal. If you are under investigation or facing federal criminal charges, our best advice is to immediately retain an experienced federal criminal lawyer at Premier Federal Criminal Defenders. For over 35 years we have been zealously representing Southern California residents.
Take control of your future by being proactive and smart about your situation. Do not argue to speak to investigators while not physically represented by an attorney. Understand that the prosecutor’s only allegiance is to the federal government and that they are not looking out for your best interest. Their goal is to close cases and to secure convictions; they are not interested in whether a plea deal is in your best interest or whether the terms and conditions of any plea are most favorable to you. Please understand that there are several different types of immunity deals a prosecutor can offer, so even if a prosecutor approaches you and offers you “immunity”, that offer may not fully protect you from current or future investigation and prosecution.
If you are facing federal criminal charges, or if you have a family member or loved one facing federal criminal charges, this is likely an incredibly stressful time for you. We recommend that you take care of yourself – seek out ways to alleviate your stress (like hiring an attorney so you know someone will be aggressively representing you against future and current prosecution), be easy on yourself and seek out help if you need it.
One of the biggest mistakes people make when dealing with federal criminal charges is letting the law be used against them simply because they do not know all the intricate rules of federal criminal procedure. That’s ok – you are not expected to be an expert in criminal law – that is where the Premier Federal Criminal Defenders comes in.

Additionally, we have extensive experience with post-conviction appeals and case research.
