Federal Crimes Defense

Defense Against Federal Criminal Charges

  • Do you suspect you’re being investigated by the feds?
  • Have you been subpoenaed to appear before a grand jury?

Prosecution of federal criminal cases is not like state cases. Federal investigations have often gone on for years before charges are brought, resulting in a mountain of so-called evidence being thrown at a jury. And the required proof for a conviction is often much less than in state courts, stacking the deck in favor of the feds.

That doesn’t mean there’s nothing a good federal criminal defense lawyer can do to fight a federal criminal charge. It means your criminal defense attorney has to be prepared to fight that much harder. That’s what we do at the Schneider Law Firm. Contact our federal criminal defense firm when you’re in a tough spot: (817) 755-1852.

Thoroughly Prepared for the Strongest Defense in Federal Criminal Cases

Federal crimes defense lawyer, Emily LaChance, is admitted to practice in the Northern District Court. When she takes your case, she immediately begins her own investigation in order to prepare for trial. She’s not working alone: She has our entire legal team behind her to assist when needed, and so do you.

  • Emily defends clients against a wide range of federal criminal charges, including:
    Federal drug crimes (drug trafficking, drug smuggling)
  • Interstate child pornography or solicitation of a minor
  • Financial crimes of embezzlement or fraud
  • Federal weapons charges
  • Organized crime

Our goal is always your freedom, but when it comes to plea negotiations, thorough preparation helps us get better deals for our clients. Although there are federal guidelines that inform a judge’s decision on sentencing, judges can order less than the guidelines. We’ll put together letters, statements, and witnesses to back up our arguments for why a lesser sentence should be given.

    I was charged with two felonies facing up to 20 years in prison. Mr. Schneider negotiated a plea deal for me that resulted in one felony charge being DISMISSED and the second one reduced to a Misdemeanor. My punishment was 2 years probation. I cannot say enough good things about the professionalism and timely manner in which he handled my cases. If you want a highly intelligent and very competent attorney representing you, this is the attorney you want on your side fighting for you!

    My attorney was Emily LaChance in dealing with a case of molestation of my step son. The allegations were brought by his biological father, whom has a history of domestic violence and has been vocally distributive in our family long before the accusations.

    Emily took a thorough journal of all the events before, during and after the accusations to show the DA’s office that this was another attack on our family by a volatile and non reputable individual. She stopped the criminal investigation before it ever began.

    She also went above and beyond by dealing with CPS, which falls under family law. She drove from her office to my home in Bedford to assist in a one on one interview with CPS to close out their case.

    This was a very trying time for me and my family and she also dealt with the emotional roller coaster that I was on. She always answered my questions via email, most of the time instantaneously, regardless if it was 10pm or the weekend.

    Even after the case was closed she made me a binder of all the events for my records in case the biological father ever decided to try to hurt our family in this way again. Thank you Emily for all your help!
