The penalties for federal criminal cases are usually more severe than for state cases. Federal sentencing guidelines give the government a great deal of power, and the government has usually conducted a lengthy investigation before seeking an indictment. Federal cases are first heard by a grand jury, which gives the government an opportunity to see how a jury would receive a particular criminal case and also gives the government an opportunity to organize their presentation of the evidence prior to trial. For all of these reasons, federal cases are some of the most difficult cases to win. If you have a federal criminal case in Houston, you should hire an experienced Houston federal defense lawyer immediately.

When to Hire an Lawyer for a Federal Case
People sometimes make the mistake of thinking that they do not need a lawyer for a grand jury investigation. The people being investigated know that they are being investigated and know that they are innocent, so they do not hire a lawyer. This is a very costly mistake. If you do not hire a lawyer for a grand jury investigation, you may be giving up very important rights and may be jeopardizing your case. To get the best result in your federal case and protect your rights, you should hire a Houston criminal defense attorney as soon as you know that you are being investigated.
