Federal Crimes Defense

Defense Against Federal Criminal Charges

  • Do you suspect you are 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. The required proof for a conviction is often much less than in state courts, stacking the deck in favor of the feds.

That does not mean there is nothing a good federal criminal defense lawyer can do to fight a federal criminal charge. It means your criminal defense attorney must be prepared to fight that much harder. That is what we do at the Schneider Law Firm. Contact our federal criminal defense firm when you are in a tough spot: 817-755-1852.

Thoroughly Prepared for the Strongest Defense in Federal Criminal Cases

Our federal crimes defense lawyer is admitted to practice in the Northern District Court. When we take your case, we immediately begin our own investigation to prepare for trial. Our entire legal team pulls together to assist when needed, and so do you.

  • Our Federal Crimes team 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 will put together letters, statements, and witnesses to back up our arguments for why a lesser sentence should be given.
