In federal crimes it’s particularly important to have a skilled federal criminal defense attorney like Robert Richman as your advocate. While state court crimes are investigated by the local police, federal crimes are investigated by the FBI, SEC, IRS, ATF, DEA, and others. These agencies have almost unlimited investigative resources and access to the most sophisticated crime labs in the world. Drug cases may make use of wiretaps or other electronic surveillance. Cases may rely on sophisticated DNA evidence or other forensic techniques. Robert Richman has been handling federal criminal cases for over 30 years.
Mr. Richman has represented individuals charged with drugs, murder, assault, sex crimes, firearms offenses, bank robbery, burglary, and immigration offenses, to name only a few. Drug and firearm offenses often trigger harsh mandatory minimum sentences in the event of a conviction, sometimes resulting in punishments more severe than in a homicide.
Robert Richman’s recent cases include the following:
- He won a “not guilty” verdict for a defendant charged with illegal possession of a firearm, convincing a jury that the DNA evidence was unreliable and that the police lied.
- He represented a defendant in the largest bank robbery in the history of the FBI. In pretrial litigation, he was successful in preventing the government from using mitochondrial DNA evidence.
- He convinced the Court that the search was illegal in a case involving illegal possession of a firearm found by the police during a search of the defendant’s vehicle. The court suppressed the gun and dismissed the charge.
- He represented a highly decorated Navy veteran charged with bank robbery.
