Federal Crimes

Many crimes, particularly white-collar crimes, can be charged at the state and federal levels. Federal courts have a different set of rules and require intimate knowledge of federal laws. Our federal defense attorneys know what it takes to handle these cases and win.

Why You Need an Attorney

When you are facing criminal charges, you are up against a prosecutor that has the full force of the state behind them. You have an uphill battle from the start, and without legal counsel, you are unlikely to get off easy. Criminal charges are rarely if ever, automatically reduced or dismissed. A prosecutor will seek for you to serve time if the alleged crime warrants it. Do not go it alone. The stakes are simply too high.

A Houston criminal defense attorney can review and investigate your case to determine if there was police misconduct, constitutional violations, or other problems during the arrest. They can subpoena evidence that you may not even know existed. With that evidence, they can work to build a strong defense and negotiate with the district attorney to achieve a favorable outcome. If a positive disposition cannot be reached, an attorney can set the matter for trial, presenting your case to a jury of your peers.

How to Get Your Case Dismissed

Ways to Get Your Case Dismissed
First, it is essential to remember that only a prosecutor or judge can dismiss your charges. Criminal charges are rarely dismissed for no reason. A prosecutor or judge must be presented with information as to why they should dismiss the charges.

Reasons your case may get dismissed:

Insufficient evidence
Pretrial diversion program
Illegal search and seizure
Lack of probable cause
Exculpatory evidence

To build a defensive case against the charges filed, the main material a criminal defense attorney uses is the Bill of Rights, often more specifically the Fourth, Fifth, and Sixth Amendments. These amendments set in place the legal precedents of modern rights of accused parties. For example, the Fourth Amendment ensures legal protection from unlawful search and seizure, while your Miranda Rights, those constitutional rights that protect you from self-incrimination, are covered in the Fifth and Sixth Amendments. By reviewing these rights and applying them to your case, defense attorneys are able to judge whether your charges are legally valid. If not, a criminal defense attorney can successfully lead the case to a mistrial.

If you are charged with a crime, you need to discuss your case with a criminal defense attorney. It is never too early to retain an attorney, but it can be too late. If you are only being investigated for a crime, you should still consult with an attorney. Depending on the situation, a knowledgeable lawyer might be able to negotiate a favorable disposition in your case before charges are even filed.
