How Does the Arkansas Federal Criminal System Work?

If you look around, you probably noticed that every criminal lawyer advertises for a wide variety of criminal cases: drunk driving, DUI, assault, rape, murder, shoplifting, and so on.

Not so Nick. Nick does not practice in Arkansas state courts. For years, Nick has made a name for himself by only taking federal cases. The reason? It’s simple. Just like you would not want a dentist to operate on your knee replacement, you should be selective when it comes to letting the right lawyer “operate” on your federal case.

If you are under investigation by federal law enforcement, you should look for a lawyer that—every day—handles federal law enforcement cases, a lawyer that daily (and not just occasionally) stands in front of federal judges and who negotiates non-prosecution agreements with federal prosecutors for a living. Just like tooth and knee procedures, state and federal cases are distinctively different.

Federal Agencies. Appearing before the FBI, the IRS, the DEA, the U.S. Secret Service, the Office of Inspector General, Department of Health and Human Services, the Department of Defense, the Department of Justice, the Department of Homeland Security, and other federal law enforcement agencies in charge of prosecuting federal offenses is just not the same as getting a misdemeanor in traffic court.

Federal Offense Types. Nick’s practice focus lies on federal white-collar investigations and offenses. Nick has represented hundreds of people and businesses in federal healthcare fraud cases (DEA opioid fraud, Medicare fraud, illegal kickbacks, False Claims Act investigations, Civil Investigative Demand, Stark Law cases etc.) in Arkansas and throughout the nation. Nick convinced even the toughest DOJ-prosecutors and federal judges to believe his client in money laundering, federal fraud, federal theft, wire fraud, mail fraud, mortgage fraud, bank fraud, securities fraud, bribery, public corruption and computer crime cases. In more than 90% of all federal criminal investigations, Nick and his team avoided criminal charges.

How Do You Pick a Federal Lawyer?

Long before you can’t ignore the problems anymore, it is time to think about the right lawyer for your case. In the situations, selecting an Arkansas federal criminal defense lawyer may become one of the most decisions you will ever make. Our Arkansas federal criminal defense lawyers offer unparalleled careers and distinctions within the federal litigation and federal criminal justice system. That means you are obtaining a level of legal experience that most other lawyers simply don’t have. Follow these guidelines.

First of all, you want to make sure that your lawyer is not a generalist but limits his or her practice to what matters to you, federal defense. The best murder defense lawyer in town may lack the nuanced understanding of, for example, a complex healthcare investigation or convoluted questions of Medicare billing. Second, you should ask the lawyer candidate point blank (with the figurative “gun to the head”) for a detailed summary of outcomes in the last 100 federal criminal cases that this lawyer has personally handled. Third, if your case involves, for example, a particularly specialized area of law, like illegal kickbacks, you should ask your lawyer candidate specific questions (and insist on specific answers) as to how many cases the lawyer that will handle your case has successfully resolved without charges being filed.

At the end of the day it comes down to: Performance. By talking to the lawyer you must reach a level of comfort and trust that this specific lawyer is the one you want to be fighting for you and standing next to you in court. Ask yourself: Is this the federal lawyer that federal prosecutors, judges, and juries will respect with admiration?

With hundreds of federal cases, FBI, OIG, DEA, IRS, and Justice Department investigations, federal defense attorney Dr. Nick Oberheiden is among the most demanded and best-known boutique attorneys in the country. You may have already heard that he takes remarkably good care of his clients. In fact, clients of Nick don’t deal with secretaries or paralegals; no junior lawyer will experiment on your livelihood. If you hire Nick, you get Nick.
