Program Summary

This CLE will be an introduction to practicing criminal defense in Federal Court. The materials will cover the very beginning of representation in a federal criminal investigation/prosecution, up through the point of resolution and sentencing. This CLE will be most valuable for attorneys who have zero to moderate experience practicing federal criminal defense. We will discuss introductory topics and the major differences between federal and state court, including the federal bail process, the different stages of a federal criminal case, and other topics. We will discuss how to deal with federal agents and members of the US Attorney’s Office from the early stages of a matter, and will be discussing the cooperation process. We’ll be giving strategy tips on how to deal with federal agents and federal prosecutors in the early stages of the case through the end, and how to maximize your client’s chances of receiving a favorable outcome in federal court. The attorneys presenting this CLE practice predominantly in the Southern District of Florida but have cases and experience in other Federal Districts around the country.
