Federal cases are not the same as a DUI or shoplifting offense. Nothing is scarier than facing the Department of Justice and the FBI trying to prosecute you. In federal cases, you simply can’t wait to hire a lawyer; you can’t experiment and start off with the wrong lawyer. By the time you realize that you hired a clueless lawyer, you may already be charged. Nick is not a DUI defense attorney and he is the wrong lawyer to call for shoplifting. However, when the United States government, the Department of Justice, the Little Rock U.S. Attorney’s Office, the FBI, the IRS, the DEA, or the OIG-HHS agents are after you, you may consider Nick’s federal experience to avoid jail or to get the case dismissed.

- (3) Case Dismissals & Probation. Few lawyers (feel encouraged to ask!) can represent to you that they have obtained dismissals in federal cases involving the United States or obtained probation in cases, where the sentencing guidelines suggested years of incarceration. Nick is that kind of lawyer! Most recently, Nick convinced a federal judge to grant his request for probation in a severe computer crime case. Similarly, Nick’s vivid court presentation persuaded a federal judge to grant Nick’s request for probation in a federal healthcare fraud case despite the government’s articulate opposition and a suggested sentencing of years in prison.
