Elyria Federal Criminal Lawyer
Experienced Federal Crime Attorneys for Your Case
It may come as no surprise that if you are convicted of a
federal crime, the penalties you face will almost certainly be very severe. In most
cases, the punishments are much harsher than those for similar charges
filed in state court. It is crucial that you get legal representation
at once from an experienced Elyria federal criminal defense attorney if
you hope to avoid conviction. Many attorneys have years of experience,
so what type of experience should you look for?
The attorneys at Gounaris Abboud, LPA have worked for over 3 decades protecting
the rights and freedoms of individuals who are accused of federal crimes.
Although we have won numerous victories at the local and state levels,
we have a proven record of success in federal court. With a conviction
rate standing at about 90%, the skills of your defense lawyer could not
be more important. While a town the size of Elyria may have a number of
fine attorneys, not all lawyers are admitted to practice in federal courts.
Offenses prosecuted at the federal level are subject to different rules
and procedures than those at lower echelons of the criminal justice system.
Federal sentencing guidelines allow for extremely heavy penalties, including incarceration and fines,
to be imposed on those who are convicted. We defend those accused of a
variety of federal charges including
internet sex crimes,
white collar crimes to list a few. While our experience in federal courts is an advantage,
there is another vastly important type of experience that can, in many
instances, make the difference in your case.
