The federal government has unlimited resources to investigate and prosecute criminal allegations against Houston residents.

Anyone under investigation or arrest for allegations of federal crimes should immediately contact an experienced federal criminal defense lawyer in Houston. Make no statements to law enforcement.

Criminal Defense of Federal Charges

Unlike state crimes, which are typically investigated by local law enforcement and prosecuted by district attorneys, federal crimes are most often investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, or other federal agency like the IRS, ATF or DEA, and prosecuted in federal court by some of the government’s best trial attorneys. Early consultation with an experienced federal criminal defense attorney in Houston, backed by a law firm with the necessary experience and resources to defend these cases in federal court, is essential to protecting a defendant’s rights at each stage of the process.

Unlike state felonies, which are prosecuted under the laws of Texas, federal cases are prosecuted under the Federal Criminal Code, which applies nationwide. Penalties in federal cases, even for first-time offenders, are often much harsher, and include substantial fines, mandatory minimum prison sentences, longer periods of incarceration, restitution, and a permanent nationwide felony criminal record. Unlimited resources, first-class investigators, and veteran U.S. attorneys combine to make the conviction rate much higher in these types of cases than those prosecuted in state court.

At The Law Offices of Alejandro Macias, PC, we do not back down! We begin aggressively defending the rights of our clients from the first phone call. In cases where an arrest has not yet occurred, it may even be possible to avoid indictment with experienced legal help. In cases where an arrest is made, we work to challenge each element of the criminal case, including the validity of warrants, searches and seizures, the quality of the evidence against you, and the validity of each element of each criminal charge at each and every stage of the case.

When our clients are facing federal investigation, or federal criminal charges, we believe the best defense is an aggressive and experienced offense. The government can charge you with whatever it wants, what really matters is whether you are convicted in a court of law.
