The Only Ally You Need When Faced with Criminal Charges

The defense for Federal Crime Charges in Houston

Proven Results and a Reputation for Success in Federal Crime Counsel

Although the vast majority of criminal cases are filed in Texas state courts, some cases are filed by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in federal court. U.S. Attorneys prosecute these cases on behalf of the federal government. Federal criminal offenses differ substantially from state criminal offenses, both in the court system in which they are filed and the penalties that can result. Therefore, you need an experienced Houston federal criminal defense attorney on your side who knows how to defend against federal charges and routinely handles cases in federal courts.

"It was unbelievably reassuring the reception Mr. Cogdell gets when entering the courtroom. I knew I was in good hands." - Former Client

The U.S. Attorney’s Office typically pursues the following types of cases in federal court:

  • Interstate and international drug crimes;
  • Conspiracies;
  • Federal weapons charges;
  • Computer and internet crimes;
  • Crimes that relate to national security; and
  • Large-scale financial crimes, such as a mortgage or bank fraud.

If you’re facing federal charges, put a seasoned federal trial lawyer on your side – contact Cogdell Law Firm at (713) 426-2244.

U.S. Attorneys Have More Resources to Prosecute Federal Crimes

Some of the most important aspects of federal prosecutions are that U.S. Attorneys handle significantly fewer cases than do prosecutors in Texas state courts, focus on more serious criminal offenses, and have more resources at their disposal in order to do so. Therefore, you should take all inquiries and investigations by the federal government very seriously, even if you have not been charged with any crime.

In any situation involving a federal investigation, arrest, or charges, it is essential that you immediately contact a seasoned Houston federal crime lawyer who can protect your rights from the very outset of any accusations that the federal government may be making against you. Mr. Cogdell and his firm offer you over three decades of experience in dealing with and successfully defending cases. He and his team will handle your case personally.
