Whether his client is in the initial phases of an investigation or there is already a full prosecution underway in court, he understands what is needed at each step of the way.
“A defendant may be facing years if not decades in prison. Federal criminal charges are some of the most complex in the justice system. Unless the individual knows the laws and knows his or her rights, he or she can make choices and statements that can weigh heavily against them in court. The sooner someone who has been accused of a federal crime gets legal counsel, the sooner we can get in front of the charges and meet them proactively instead of reactively.”
When federal criminal charges have been brought, the accused has most probably been under surveillance and investigation for a period of time. This means that the federal government has had substantial time to build a strong case against the defendant and that they have already amassed significant evidence.
“I already know that the stakes are high for any client who has been federally charged. Sometimes, these are just kids who have gotten caught up in federal drug conspiracy charges and are looking at their entire futures being altered because of it. When it comes to any federal charge, it needs to be dealt with swiftly and aggressively. Most of my clients have no idea what their rights and responsibilities are under the law. We keep positive about outcomes but also realistic. Each alternative needs to be considered with a hopeful resolution of a dismissal or a not guilty verdict. Often, we need to go for a plea deal. Whatever the case, I partner with my client to achieve the best possible outcome given the evidence against them.”
From the initial investigation to an appeal, federal criminal charges require the skill of a seasoned professional. For over two decades, Jason Bassett, Esq. has been intimately involved in the legal justice system and understands it from both the prosecutorial and criminal defense perspectives.
