At the Torrance criminal defense law offices Robinson Kardon, we specialize in federal criminal defense. The Federal Criminal Code’s procedures and rules apply uniformly across the country. We have handled criminal matters and tried criminal cases from Hawaii to New York, and all federal districts in between. Because the Southern California area has the most active federal district and prosecutes the most federal cases, many of the cases prosecuted across the country have connection to the Central District of California.
With the Central District of California’s large and diverse population, as well as the largest seaport in the United States, many prosecutions undertaken in other districts originate in Los Angeles. We have found that representing our clients in other districts when our clients reside in California provides a distinct advantage to our clients. With the ability to meet regularly with our clients, review evidence, and strategize our defenses, unhampered by long distance, we are able to provide the personal attention and detail necessary to achieve the most favorable results.
This year, as an example, Robinson Kardon’s criminal defense attorneys represented a defendant accused of conspiring to distribute controlled substances, money laundering, and engaging in a criminal enterprise in the district of Nebraska. In that case, the government sought to forfeit hundreds of thousands of dollars in connection with the charges. Through our aggressive pretrial motion practice, we positioned the case such that at trial, despite the fact that the government attempted to prove our client was involved in an amount of controlled substances triggering a sentence of over 10 years, and sought to forfeit substantially over $500,000, the client was held responsible for both a fraction of the controlled substances, as well as a fraction of the money involved.
Given our experience in federal defense, Robinson Kardon is able to render the government’s cooperating witnesses, who are all family members, friends and co-defendants, useless, through vigorous, effective, and aggressive cross-examination. In finding for our client on the forfeiture issue and at sentencing, the district court judge affirmatively found that the government witnesses’ testimony had been so discredited by the efforts of Robinson Kardon, that he found them unreliable and refused to use their testimony against our client at sentencing or in the forfeiture proceedings.
Again, the case was tried in Nebraska. Robinson Kardon’s client lived in Los Angeles. Being able to meet with our client on a regular basis, and having consistent and repeated trial preparation sessions, Robinson Kardon was able to use the details gathered during those sessions to create a trial strategy, which ultimately eviscerated the government witnesses. This would have been very difficult to accomplish over the telephone.
It is this communication and personal attention to detail that allows our experienced criminal defense to achieve such favorable results. Unique and specialized defenses like entrapment, duress and government misconduct, can only be properly strategized and presented through direct and consistent communication with the client. Robinson Kardon prides itself on its ability to present these defenses, and our expertise in federal criminal defense allows it to achieve these results for its clients who are charged in federal district courts across the country.
