Federal Criminal Cases
Most attorneys never see the inside of a Federal Courthouse because they know they can’t just walk into a Federal Courtroom and fake knowing the law as they may get away with it in a state courtroom. Federal cases are much more formal and require the attorney to know more and be better prepared. A sloppy criminal defense attorney will be eaten alive if he is not prepared in Federal Court. Federal cases are investigated by a higher class of law enforcement officers and they may have spent months or even years investigating the case. Trials may last months instead of days. Sentences are usually longer than in state court. I have over thirty years of experience trying complicated and lengthy cases in Federal Court. I am on the CJA Panel for federal attorneys in the Southern District of Texas. I am licensed by the highest federal court in The United States, The Supreme Court of the United States, to practice in front of it.
