Altgelt Law Office
State And Federal Criminal Defense Employment Law And Family Law

Federal Cases Require An Experienced Attorney

In a federal case, punishment typically involves harsher sentences than in state cases. Federal prosecutors and judges have very little discretion in charging and sentencing, so the stakes are higher.

The procedures are also different in federal court. Federal court is very technical compared to state court, which allows for creative problem-solving. You need a lawyer who understands these distinct procedures and knows how to fight to protect you. Attorney George Altgelt is licensed to practice in the Southern District of Texas and Eastern District of Texas, and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit. He has the knowledge and experience you need to protect your freedom.

We Will Diligently Pursue A Favorable Outcome For You

We understand the devastating effects a federal criminal conviction can have on your life, your family and your career. Conviction may mean lengthy prison terms and steep fines, depending on the case.

You can come to our firm for aggressive, strategic representation in federal cases such as:

  • Drug charges, from possession to trafficking
  • Money laundering
  • Mail or wire fraud
  • Internet fraud
  • Child pornography
  • Firearms cases
  • Bank robbery
  • Most offenses that cross state lines
  • Immigration cases for criminal defense or other matters

In all federal cases, it is advisable to contact an attorney immediately, even if you have not been charged yet. If you are under investigation, talk with a lawyer today. In some instances, we can intervene and prevent criminal charges from being filed. If that is not possible, you will still have an attorney working hard on your defense early in the case.
