Houston Federal Crimes Defense Attorney
Trusted Legal Counsel for Federal Charges
If you are under federal investigation, it is imperative that you seek legal representation immediately. Crimes that are tried in federal court are typically subject to much harsher penalties and sentences, so it is crucial to have a lawyer in your corner who knows what you are up against. At The Martinez Law Firm, our Houston criminal defense attorney has the experience and skill that is necessary to help you face such serious accusations.
What is a federal crime?
Many activities are regulated by both state and federal legislation. When an alleged action violates federal law, it can potentially surpass the state courts. These are typically investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and prosecuted according to guidelines established by each judicial district's United States Attorney.
The following are examples of federal crimes:
- Mail fraud
- Evasion of taxes
- Immigration offense
- Drug-related offenses
- Crimes committed on federal property
- And more
