Nationwide Federal Criminal Trial Statistics

More than 90 percent of all federal criminal cases do not proceed to trial. Instead, the vast majority of people facing criminal prosecution choose to seek a lighter sentence by entering a guilty plea in the case. Approximately two-thirds of cases that go to trial end up in conviction. Faced with such overwhelming odds, it is clear that you cannot afford to take any chances with the outcome of the situation.

Wherever possible, The Law Offices of Joel DeFabio seeks to resolve our cases as quickly as possible through a dismissal of the charges or through a favorable plea bargain. However, we do not hesitate to fight all the way to a full trial when that is necessary to defend our clients' rights. With decades of experience and a track record that includes more than 100 jury trials, you can have confidence in our ability to get results for you. We level the playing field for our clients, and we have a reputation for aggressively pursuing justice in every case we represent.
