Los Angeles Federal Lawyer
Beverly Hills Conspiracy Defense Attorney
When two or more people agree to commit a criminal offense and take some action toward its completion, this is considered the crime of conspiracy. To be charged with conspiracy, an individual need not have actually committed the crime, only to have conspired to commit the crime. A simple agreement, however, does not constitute conspiracy.
A federal criminal defense lawyer can help an individual who is facing conspiracy charges. By conducting an evaluation and investigation of all aspects of the case and charges, a skilled lawyer will be able to determine how to develop a defense strategy that has the greatest chance of staying strong even in the face of harsh federal prosecutors.
Los Angeles conspiracy attorney Robert M. Bernstein offers a free consultation to those who have been charged with conspiracy. He can review your particular situation and give you an honest evaluation of what you are facing.
