Defense Against Conspiracy Charges
Conspiracy is one of the most complex federal criminal charges — and one of the most difficult to prove. Loosely defined, conspiracy is an agreement between two or more parties to carry out a criminal act. Such offenses can range from conspiring to traffic illegal narcotics to conspiring to defraud a bank or business to conspiring to commit treason against the United States. In most cases, some sort of overt act — something that is concrete and provable — must be carried out in order for a lawsuit to be filed.
When facing federal criminal conspiracy charges, you will likely deal with a U.S. attorney and at least one government agency such as the FBI, DEA or SEC. As such, you will need skilled attorneys on your side to fight against the power of the federal government. The attorneys at Conaway & Strickler, P.C. are uniquely prepared to assist. We have earned a reputation for providing effective defense representation at every level. We are adept at minimizing the punishments our clients face and, whenever possible, will seek to have a case dismissed.
Serving Atlanta Beyond
Defending against federal conspiracy charges is very different from defending a case in state or superior courts. These cases hinge on evidence and witnesses, and the prosecution puts great effort into building their arguments. Indeed, a prosecutor will rarely try a case unless he or she believes victory is inevitable.
This is why retaining legal counsel with a demonstrable record of results is so important. Our lawyers possess a thorough understanding of the federal criminal code, the legal procedures and the sentencing guidelines necessary to erecting an effective defense. We have succeeded in getting conspiracy charges reduced or thrown out on numerous occasions. In fact, this is our specialty.
