Federal Criminal Defense

Federal Criminal Defense

Federal courts work differently than state courts. Federal crimes are prosecuted on the federal level, and most crimes committed in the United States are prosecuted this way. Federal criminal laws can cover activity that’s overseen by federal agencies or that occurs between multiple states. These types of crimes can include fraud, robbery and crossing state lines to commit offenses.

The agencies that often investigate these crimes include the FBI, CIA and ATF, and they have extensive and highly effective investigative techniques. Although federal charges are more difficult to fight than state charges, our team at Owens Criminal Defense brings over 15 years of experience to build your case and defend your rights.

Owens Criminal Defense analyze the evidence and conduct a thorough investigation of your case, which includes using a private investigator to visit the crime scene, interview witnesses and track down leads to build your defense, exposing any errors by law enforcement along the way.

As sentencing guidelines for federal crimes can be serious, it’s essential to have experienced attorneys you can trust to defend you against the charges. Owens Criminal Defense builds a unique strategy based on your case, and has been lead counsel in dozens of jury trials.

Prosecutors fight with the weight of the state behind them. They are driven to prosecute. Our team is driven by our clients and their unique lives. Each has a family and a life to protect. We understand and empathize. We are on your side. We will fight the prosecution to the end- We are your fearless advocate.

Our strategy is to seize the initiative from the start, and never relent. What this means for you is that we will demand the government comply with the rules of criminal procedure and respect your constitutional rights. When the government fails to do so, we will file motions and put the government’s non-compliance before a judge. This strategy is what we call aggressive defense. This strategy over the years has proven to keep the government on the defensive and yields extremely favorable results.

We approach each case as if it is going to proceed to trial. This means we investigate the case fully and thoroughly to find all of the errors in the police reports. This is essential to developing our defensive theory. We will visit the alleged crime scene, speak with witnesses, research case law and statutes, file motions and argue the motions to a judge. It is through this process that we develop our theory of the case.

We are skilled and relentless trial attorneys. We have tried dozens of cases to a jury, including several murder cases. We have won Not Guilty verdicts, including Not Guilty in a murder trial where we used a self-defense theory. We will be prepared and ready for war should your case proceed to trial.

Please call us for a free consultation. We travel and fight in all courts. You will speak directly with our lead a attorney, not a legal assistant. We will discuss potential defenses to your case and we will describe how we can work together to achieve the best possible outcome in your case.
