San Antonio Federal Defense Lawyer
A federal crime is any crime which either violates federal law or is committed on or against a federal property. Federal crimes are amongst the most severe types of crimes and are often investigated by government agencies such as DHS, CIA, IRS, FBI, to name a few. Federal crimes are not tried in state court, they are tried in federal court, a completely separate system.

You need an attorney that is not only an expert in criminal defense, but in defending federal crimes and has a successful court record in defending serious federal cases.
