Federal Defense


Laredo Federal Defense Attorney

Altgelt Law Office, P.C.

Federal Defense 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.
