There is a dramatic difference between state and federal charges. While both certainly have the power to ruin your life, federal charges tend to be much more challenging.
Federal cases have more layers of complexity. They are often preceded by lengthy investigations, meaning that there may be substantial evidence involved. They are prosecuted by the federal government, which has a great deal of power and a vast array of resources at its disposal. According to the U.S. Department of Justice, the conviction rate in federal courts was 93 percent as of 2012, significantly higher than the conviction rate in Texas state courts.
If you have been charged with a federal offense, it is important that you choose a lawyer who has experience fighting these charges.
A Record Of Success In State And Federal Court
At the law office of Phillip A. Linder in Dallas-Fort Worth, we have earned an impressive record of success fighting criminal charges in state and federal courtrooms. Attorney Linder is admitted to handle cases in all Texas state and federal courts. He is also admitted to five federal districts outside of Texas. No matter how serious the charges against you may be, we have the proven strength to fight for your rights and take your case to trial if needed.
Many of the federal court cases we handle involve federal white collar crimes such as fraud, money laundering and conspiracy. These are intricate cases that require a great deal of time and effort. We invest the necessary time and effort because we are committed to protecting the careers and futures of the people we represent.
We also defend against federal drug charges, including drug trafficking and drug conspiracy cases. These are often major operations on the part of the federal government, and many people can be charged in a single operation. It is not unusual for people to get wrapped up in a major federal drug bust despite being minor players or perhaps not being involved at all. We are dedicated to fighting the charges and proving your innocence.
