Trial Experience on Both Sides of Federal Crimes

Many criminal defense attorneys are former state prosecutors, but very few have been on the other side of federal charges. Richard Suzuki served as an Assistant U.S. Attorney, in addition to prosecuting felonies as a Deputy Maricopa County Attorney.

If you are charged with a federal crime, it is critical that your lawyer knows what he's doing. Mr. Suzuki understands rules of evidence, discovery and other federal court procedures that are significantly different from state court. He understands which crimes carry mandatory minimum sentences and enhancement factors that can add years to a prison term.

He knows federal sentencing guidelines, where there is leeway for a favorable plea bargain or mitigated prison time, and where there is no choice but to go to trial. Most importantly, Richard can think like a federal prosecutor. Just by reading the indictment, he can glean the strength of the case against you and what the government will likely do next.
