Over the past 12+ years, Andrew has represented clients in a wide variety of cases in Federal Court. Representing a client accused of committing a Federal crime is VERY different than representing a client in State court. For one, the potential punishments in Federal court are usually more severe. Additionally, law enforcement (FBI, DEA, ATF, & ICE) will have invested a great deal of time and resources in their investigation.
For these reasons, it is critical to have an experienced Board Certified Criminal Trial Lawyer, like Andrew, to represent you and your interests in Federal Court. Andrew’s vast courtroom experience coupled with his knowledge and familiarity with the intricacies of Federal laws, procedures, and guidelines allow Andrew to effectively and aggressively advocate for his clients.
Often times in Federal cases, time is of the essence. Because time matters, Andrew schedules an initial meeting with his clients immediately to assess his client’s situation. Andrew will thoroughly and completely review all the evidence and the applicable laws. Andrew makes sure to explain the strengths and weaknesses of the Federal case, the various options and the possible outcomes if the case were to proceed to a trial. Andrew will give his expert advice to his client on whether to proceed with trial or whether to accept a plea agreement. This decision is not to be taken lightly and requires full and careful consideration of all the evidence, possible punishments, and how the decision could affect the client and their family’s present and future.
The Federal Criminal Justice system is extremely complicated and ever changing. It is critical to have Andrew Shein, a Board Certified Criminal Trial Lawyer on your side to aggressively represent you against the United States Government.
