Federal Criminal Defense In Dallas

Federal criminal charges differ greatly from charges at the state level. Federal crimes have their own definitions and carry different penalties than state crimes. In addition, the federal courts have their own rules and procedures, and if an attorney is not familiar with how the federal system operates, the results may be disastrous for the person who is facing criminal charges. It is essential to seek help from a lawyer with experience in the area of federal criminal defense.

A Note About Federal Sentencing Guidelines

Federal crimes carry mandatory minimum sentences that are often more severe than the potential consequences of a state criminal conviction. However, a judge does have the discretion to depart from these guidelines. If we are unable to get your case dismissed or to win an acquittal, we know how to successfully argue for a downward departure from these federal minimums.
