FEDERAL PROSECUTIONS

Grand Jury Witnesses: I represented a witness who was called to testify before a federal grand jury. We prepared her testimony, considered her rights, what questions she could or could not answer. I accompanied her to court, but lawyers are not permitted into the grand jury hearing room. I remained in the hallway to be available if she wished to ask my advice. She was not indicted.

Bankruptcy Fraud Investigation: My client's ex-husband was being investigated for bankruptcy fraud. I assisted her in preparing her interview with the United States Attorney. I advised her as to her rights, her possible exposure, and negotiated immunity for her assistance.

Manufacturing Marijuana: My client and her husband were indicted for growing marijuana. Her husband moved to dismiss, challenging the government's warrant. Although we joined that motion, I used the evidentiary hearing to demonstrate that virtually none of the evidence implicated my client. The court denied the dismissal. We then negotiated a reduced charge and probation for my client where she would remain at home to care for her young child.

Alien Smuggling/Conspiracy/Money Laundering: My client's family retained me to appeal after he pleaded guilty and received an exceptionally long sentence. We won a new sentencing hearing.

Before the hearing, we received the government's evidence of alien smuggling. The government agents relied on an informant to translate for them -- and that informant lied in his translations. The government had relied on huge amounts of false evidence. We brought this evidence to the court and moved to withdraw the guilty pleas. The district court denied the motion and imposed exactly the same sentence as before.

We appealed again. The U.S. Court of Appeals reversed the sentence again. The district court this time imposed a sentence of credit for time served. The client was released after serving 1/2 of the original sentence.
