Federal Crimes Defense

An Aggressive Defense Against Federal Charges

When you are facing criminal charges, you need a good defense to get you the outcome you deserve in your case. When you are facing federal criminal charges, the consequences increase dramatically, and you need to be sure that you are putting up your best possible defense to fight them. Federal convictions can lead to years behind bars, thousands of dollars in fines or more.

At the Law Office of Michael Benton, we have been serving Texas citizens for many years, and we know what it takes to get you the best possible outcome in your case. We explore all options, in and out of court, to dismiss or reduce the charges against you. We have the experience to represent you in state and federal cases.

With Federal Crimes, The Stakes Are Higher

State crimes consist of crimes that take place entirely in a single state. When the crime involves multiple states, whether by the events of the crime crossing state borders, or victims of the crime are in multiple states (such as internet crimes), the charges may become federal, and the consequences increase.

Some of the federal crimes we defend against include the following:

  • Immigration crimes: illegal reentry, harboring and smuggling
  • Firearm offenses: straw purchases (buying from an illegal seller), false statements, gun ammunition/smuggling
  • Money laundering

No matter what type of federal charges that you are facing we know how to help you, and we are ready to do it.
