Austin Federal Crime Attorneys You Can Trust

Federal Criminal Defense in Texas

Austin Criminal Defense Attorney

Federal crimes either cross state lines, involve a federal agency (e.g., the post office, federally insured banks, the SEC and HUD) or involve the internet. The most common cases prosecuted at the Federal level include drug trafficking, bank robbery and internet pornography. Our attorneys are seasoned, aggressive, and professional federal criminal defense lawyers.

Over the past five years, we have represented clients facing:

  • Drug Trafficking
  • Money Laundering
  • Bank Robbery
  • Illegal Entry
  • Federal Firearms Offenses
  • Illegal Weapons (i.e., machine guns and/or explosives)
  • Weapons in Possession of Undocumented Aliens

Federal prosecutors usually focus on fewer and more serious cases and have multiple ways of building cases through more sophisticated means, including:

  • Pen Registers
  • Wiretaps
  • Video and Surveillance
  • Informants
  • Debriefers (Co-Defendants who will talk to lessen their sentences)

Reason federal charges are much tougher include:

  • Federal sentences come with severe penalties with no parole.
  • The Federal Criminal Code does not engage in plea negotiations.
  • When being charged with a federal crime, law enforcement personnel typically have better resources at their disposal as well as more aggressive and experienced prosecutors.

Facing federal charges? Call us or email us as soon as possible. Normally, the Feds are and already have been gathering evidence against you. Remember - you have an absolute right to your silence.
