Phoenix Federal Crime Defense Attorney
Our Attorney Has Experience with High Profile Cases
When you are charged with, or are even being investigated for a federal

in Arizona, or anywhere in the United States, is typically reserved for
the most experienced criminal defense attorneys. Many lawyers, no matter
how experienced they may be, shy away from cases in United States District
(Federal) Court given the complexities and unique rules that apply. This
is where you can trust Jason D. Lamm Attorney at Law.

What is a Target Letter?
There are many instances when someone receives a letter from the Justice
Department advising them they may be a "target" of a federal
investigation. This is known as a target letter. As soon as such a letter
is received, it is essential to hire a criminal defense attorney who is
experienced in federal courts. A target letter is a subtle invitation
from the prosecution to contact them about a pending federal investigation
or case. In some cases, the recipient of a target letter is someone who
has information and about whom the government has not decided if they
are going to formally indict (charge) in federal court. In other instances,
the government is certain that it will move forward with the filing of
criminal charges in federal court, but it wants to create an opportunity
to see if the target is able to cooperate with federal officials to seek
a reduction or sentence, or even possibly a dismissal of all potential charges.
A target letter is never something that should be ignored. When federal
prosecutors send a target letter and do not get a response, the likely
outcome is that the target will eventually find themselves being arrested
by federal agents and soon after standing handcuffed in front of a judge
in federal court. Ignoring a target letter is a mistake. The minute one
is received, whether it is in Arizona or elsewhere around the United States,
it is imperative to contact an experienced attorney.
