In addition to maintaining a successful criminal defense law practice in Florida, Dan Eckhart is now also defending clients facing federal charges in Michigan. Admitted to the United States District Courts for the Eastern and Western District of Michigan, Dan is of counsel with Abood Law, an award-winning criminal defense, personal injury, and family law firm established in 1956. With offices in East Lansing, Grand Rapids, and Birmignham, Abood law is well positioned to help clients throughout the state.
Dan brings his knowledge of the federal system and credibility with judges, federal prosecutors and agents to his work with Abood Law clients. Whether you are an individual accused of drug trafficking or a healthcare provider being investigated for fraud, it’s important to have a qualified federal defense attorney in your corner.
Most criminal cases are prosecuted in state court; however, drug, conspiracy, fraud, child pornography offenses and money laundering cases are often charged federally. This usually happens when a local law enforcement officer takes what would ordinarily be a state case and convinces a federal agency to adopt it. For defendants, this can be bad news since federal sentences are typically much longer for certain offenses.
Fortunately, Abood Law will have another strong advocate on its team. Dan is very excited about putting his experience to work to help those accused of federal crimes in his home state of Michigan.
