A Law firm focused on the representation of Computer Sex Crimes
Years ago, members of this law firm observed a rapidly growing trend toward the prosecution of computer-based criminal offenses. In particular, we witnessed an exponential increase in allegations of computer sex offenses which needed legal representation. Study of this trend and the methodology of prosecutions throughout the United States made it evident that the lawyers would need to place great focus on the defense of these cases if they were to be effective. Computer sex offenses are unlike traditional crimes that most criminal defense lawyers are accustomed to handling. These cases present very complex and unique issues that demand a lawyer skilled in the particular discipline. In line with our overall goal to afford all of our clients the best available defense strategy, a segment of the law firm was designed specifically to handle computer sex offenses.

Our approach to handling Computer Sex Crimes
Because computer and Internet sex crime cases are complex and require ample research and attention, Ian N. Friedman & Associates, L.L.C. does not handle a high volume of cases. As such, we are able to create the most comprehensive and effective defenses for our clients.
To assist us, we are able to draw from our large network of professional resources including attorneys with specialized areas of focus, private investigators, computer forensic experts, psychiatrists, mitigation specialists, and trial consultants.
Our firm will usually mount a two-step defense. First the lawyers and staff will meet to develop and implement a strategy deemed most appropriate for the case. We believe that the only way to effectively defend a case against the government is to be extraordinarily prepared, leaving no aspect of any case to chance. Great attention is afforded to investigation, motion practice and trial presentation, and all preliminary safeguards are exercised so that our clients' rights are protected throughout the pendency of their investigation or case.
The second step, when appropriate, involves helping clients understand how they may come into this type of situation. We can recommend and arrange professional evaluation, including confidential medical and/or psychiatric assistance. This serves two purposes. First, any person charged with a computer-based offense will need emotional support throughout the ordeal. Second, if a resolution were ever reached that required the client to appear in court, evidence of acknowledgment and treatment may be highly beneficial for mitigation purposes.
If you choose our firm to represent you, you will remain in constant contact with different members of the firm depending on the specific topic or issue that needs to be addressed. You will be kept apprised of the status of your case and you'll be encouraged to discuss any questions or concerns that may arise at any time.
