The choice of a lawyer is particularly critical for federal criminal cases.  Val Rodriguez is board certified by the Florida Bar in criminal trial law. In particular, the issue for determination in most federal cases is whether the defendant knowingly and willfully committed the crime, or whether the Government simply can prove nothing more than a mistake.
