MN Criminal Defense Attorneys Offer Help With Federal Target Letter

December 03, 2019 - /PressAdvantage/ - Birrell Law Firm, based in Minneapolis, MN, has announced that they have criminal defense lawyers who can help people in Minnesota who have received a federal target letter. The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) usually sends target letters to people who are the target of a grand jury investigation, including those who are the subject of a grand jury investigation. They are advising people who have received such a target letter from the DOJ or the US Attorney’s Office to get the services of an experienced federal criminal defense attorney as early as possible. A federal target letter attorney can guide the defendant through the whole federal criminal process.

Ian Birrell, a partner at the law firm, says, “One who is considered a target of the investigation is a person whom the U.S. attorney believes has 'substantial evidence linking him or her to the commission of a crime' and has information that would be helpful to an investigation and whose 'conduct falls within the scope of the grand jury investigation.'”

He continues, “An experienced lawyer from our firm may be able to help you avoid the actual filing of criminal charges through negotiation with federal prosecutors, through counseling on how to respond to government inquiries or through limiting the invasive scope of a grand jury investigation. At no point should you attempt without the benefit of counsel to explain your involvement in a potentially illegal scheme to federal agents or investigators. What you say will be used against you and that you will actually hurt your defense rather than help it. Before you take any steps, contact us to privately discuss your matter with the experienced members of the firm.”

A federal target letter usually notifies the recipient about a number of things. These include the recipient’s status as a target in a federal grand jury investigation; the crime or crimes that the recipient is suspected of committing; the recipient’s right to assert the Fifth Amendment; and information for obtaining court-appointed counsel. Those who would like to see more information about Birrell Law Firm can check out their website.

They would like to point out that getting the services of a good lawyer will provide the defendant with the best chance of reaching a favorable result. In some cases, the lawyer might be able to convince the prosecution to drop the investigation. And even if the case will inevitably lead to a criminal indictment, the lawyer from Birrell Law Firm might be able to obtain early discovery, assess the evidence, and possibly reach out to the prosecution to negotiate for a favorable plea agreement before the indictment. It is possible that the prosecution may not have spent a considerable amount of time and resources in investigating the case at this particular stage, and there may be a better chance of negotiating an agreement compared to when a grand jury has already returned an indictment with certain charges.

Birrell Law Firm is also capable of handling other criminal defense practices, aside from the federal target letter. These include bank fraud, healthcare fraud, identity theft, insider trading, money laundering, RICO, securities fraud, tax evasion/tax fraud, and wire fraud/mail fraud.

This law firm has lawyers who have been recognized by the American Board of Criminal Lawyers, Super Lawyers, Minnesota State Bar Association, American College of Trial Lawyers, and National Board of Trial Advocacy. Partner Ian Birrell is an honors graduate of the University of Minnesota Law School where he was the recipient of a Robina Scholarship for all three years of law school. He has experience in jury trials in both federal and state courts. Meanwhile, Partner Andrew Birrell is a board certified criminal law specialist by the Minnesota State Bar Association, “AV-Rated” by Martindale-Hubbell, a board certified criminal trial advocate by the National Board of Trial Advocacy, a fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers, and more.

Streep, Miranda and Stone are named as Met Gala co-0chairs

Dec 5, 2019

NEW YORK — Next year's Met Gala may be the closest we'll ever come to getting a Miranda Priestly moment at the starry event. Meryl Streep has been named as a co-chair of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute. The Oscar-winner played Priestly, a thinly veiled fictional version of Vogue editor Anna Wintour, in the movie "The Devil Wears Prada." Wintour clearly has no hard feelings because she selected Streep as a co-chair along with Lin-Manuel Miranda and fellow Oscar-winner Emma Stone. Designer Nicolas Ghesquiere rounds out the group. The gala's theme is "About Time: Fashion and Duration," which...

Try something new with uncommonly delicious (and ugly) fruit

Dec 5, 2019

As I savor one of my just-picked American persimmons (Diospyros virginiana), I'm reminded how this fruit — and a few other delectable fruits — would never sell. Why not? Because they're ugly! Although the persimmons hung from the branches as handsome, plump, orange orbs up to a few weeks ago, by now they have shriveled and their skins are darkening to brown and black. The texture and flavor have likewise changed. They once were like dried apricots that have been plumped up in water and then dipped in honey with a dash of spice. Now, they've become mushier, with some...

Millennial Money: Secrets of a Black Friday Shopper

Dec 5, 2019

My husband and I have a Thanksgiving routine. Before the family arrives or the turkey is carved, we gather in the living room. As Christmas music plays in the background, he turns on his laptop, and I mine. That's when the deal hunt begins. Some people cringe at the thought of shopping on Thanksgiving or Black Friday, but I revel in it. Maybe it's because I love a good bargain, or because I write about how to save money. Whatever the reason, I know a lot about Black Friday. And I'd like to share some secrets with you. SHOPPING EARLY...

3-2-1-Cookoff! Astronauts to bake cookies with new test oven

Dec 5, 2019

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — Forget reheated, freeze-dried space grub. Astronauts are about to get a new test oven for baking chocolate chip cookies from scratch. The next delivery to the International Space Station — scheduled for liftoff this weekend — includes the Zero G Oven. Chocolate chip cookie dough is already up there, waiting to pop into this small electric oven designed for zero gravity. Sample cookies baked just this week are also launching from Virginia on Northrop Grumman's Cygnus capsule, for the six station astronauts. The experiment explores the possibility of making freshly baked items for space travelers. With...
