Defending You In Federal Court
There is no such thing as a minor criminal offense when it is charged in federal court. The saying to “make a federal case” out of something means to blow it up into a major offense.
At The Law Offices of Steven M. Williams, we are experienced in handling cases both in Texas state and federal courts. The following are examples of cases that can be tried in federal court:
- Major drug cases
- Conspiracy cases
- White collar crimes
- Significant fraud cases
- Medicare fraud
- Tax fraud or evasion
- Money laundering
- Immigration offenses
- Certain firearm offenses such as possession by a convicted felon
- Bank robbery when the institution is FDIC insured
- Any crime that takes place across state lines
- Federal fish and game charges
If you are contacted by federal investors, you should not say anything until you talk to a lawyer. Speaking to a federal law enforcement agent is hazardous to your freedom. If you make a statement that is false, you could be charged with a federal crime even if you are not found guilty of the underlying offenses.
The potential for significant prison time is great whenever you face federal charges. To protect your freedom, seek legal counsel as soon as you find out you are under investigation. We take pride in representing our clients throughout Wise County, Texas, including the surrounding counties and communities.
