Federal Defense Lawyers
Before you would buy that new sports car, you would want to take a look under the hood, wouldn't you?
Well, before you go inside that federal courthouse, we want to offer you a look under the hood of what can make the difference in your life when you make your last exit from that federal courthouse. . . Your Lawyer! Not all lawyers are created the same: some are born smarter, some go to better law schools, some study harder, some work harder, some take more chances, some know how to suck it up and some know just how to rattle a federal prosecutor, not ever be intimidated by a federal judge and, most importantly, know how to keep fighting even after the fat lady sings!
Los Angeles Federal Criminal Defense Attorney Joseph Shemaria: A Premier Criminal Defense Lawyer Defending Individuals Accused of Serious Crimes in Federal Courts Across the United States.
Joseph Shemaria is recognized as one of the premier federal criminal defense lawyers in Los Angeles, California, the home of the largest United States District Court. He was one of a handful (amongst thousands of available criminal defense lawyers in the combined Los Angeles County, Orange County, Ventura County and Santa Barbara County areas) selected to serve on the prestigious CRIMINAL JUSTICE ACT Panel from 1974 to 1979. During that time period, Mr. Shemaria represented literally thousands of federal criminal defendants.
More importantly, the United States District Court for the Central District of California, aside from being the largest in the country, was even better known for having one of the toughest, if not the toughest, Federal Bench in the entire U. S. A., no doubt due to former President Richard M. Nixon (“Tricky Dick”) repaying "political debts" with appointments of his old cronies and even one lawyer from his own former Law Firm. So it is no exaggeration (for those of you that weren't around at that time) to say that Mr. Shemaria was literally forged in the trenches of not only the largest U. S. District Court in the country, but the one with probably the toughest federal judges sitting. Mr. Shemaria, along with very few other federal criminal defense attorneys currently practicing in Los Angeles, had the unique experience of having been hardened by some of the toughest federal judges in the country.
Practicing federal criminal defense law is an art, not a science.
Like the brain surgeon who is doing his very first “open skull” brain surgery as "Doctor in charge," so too are many lawyers advertising on the Internet. Mr. Shemaria does not need your case to get experience or exposure to some new kind of federal crime. He's "been there and done that." Very few federal criminal defense lawyers have been "at it" consistently and without interruption since 1970. Fewer still, mind you, have published criminal opinions in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals, Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals and The United States District Court for the Central District of California.
Aside from unmatchable law school credentials and 40 years of continuous combat in the trenches of the United States District Court criminal sector, not many lawyers also have the most prestigious ratings from Martindale Hubbell.
Joe has been in the Bar Registry of Preeminent Lawyers since it commenced. He has had a 5.0 out of a possible 5 (5 being the highest) Peer-Reviewed Rating by Lawyers.com.
If you can find a federal criminal defense lawyer with more experience, he is probably in a grave somewhere or enjoying his golden years. Joe is a dyed-in-the- wool criminal defense attorney who still loves what he does and does it because he loves it!
Although you have not met Joe and Joe has not met you, Joe is undoubtedly defending somebody in the very same shoes in which you now stand. Aside from being compassionate and understanding, Mr. Shemaria bends over backwards to make certain that you get the very best outcome and results possibly obtainable, whether that be a decision by the United States Attorney's Office not to file, the federal law enforcement agency's decision not to pursue their case and to close it, a dismissal by the Court, the best possible "plea agreement" obtainable in your case, a hung jury, or an acquittal-- whatever is a very best conceivable outcome and result is what Mr. Shemaria is going to attempt to get for you, no ifs, ands or buts-- what you see is what you get!
