Our Attorney Has Experience with High Profile Cases

When you are charged with, or are even being investigated for a federal crime, it is essential to seek out counsel who is recognized as a trusted federal criminal defense lawyer in Phoenix.

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.
