Beaumont, Texas Federal Defense
Trusted and Driven Texas-Based Federal Trial Lawyers Serving Beaumont
At Oberheiden, P.C., we are Texas-based trial lawyers with significant experience in representing federal matters. With a team that includes experienced defense attorneys and seasoned former U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) prosecutors, we handle cases from investigation through all levels of federal appeals.
If you are facing a federal investigation, what do you need to know? First and foremost, you are entitled to legal representation, and it is critical that you put an experienced legal team on your side. You could be very well facing off against a team of experienced agents and attorneys from multiple law enforcement agencies. If you do not take adequate measures to protect yourself, they will do what it takes to convict you.
Second, the fact that you are under investigation does not necessarily mean that you will be charged. The fact that you have not yet been charged may be that prosecutors don’t believe they have enough evidence to convict you – yet. By intervening in the investigative process, our attorneys can seek to persuade the prosecutors that they will not be able to build a case, and that further pursuit of the investigation would amount to a waste of everyone’s time and resources.

How We Defend Clients in Federal Matters
1. Aggressive Intervention in Federal Investigations
We have successfully helped our clients close their investigations without facing criminal charges. By intervening in the government’s investigation as early as possible, we have the greatest opportunity to challenge the government’s allegations and assumptions – and to present convincing arguments that lead to non-prosecution.
2. Comprehensive Defense Strategies
From constitutional protections to challenging the government’s evidence of intent (a key requirement to establish criminal culpability in most federal cases), we take an exhaustive approach that focuses on identifying all grounds to challenge the government’s case. The more questions we can raise, it is possible that prosecutors will be less convinced that it is worth taking your case to trial.
3. Obtaining Bond
Obtaining bond in federal cases and obtaining bond in state cases are two very different matters. We have extensive experience in federal bond matters; and in cases where have sought to secure bond for our clients, we have maintained a success rate of close to 100%.
4. Seeking Dismissal Following Indictment
While many defense attorneys believe that an indictment reduces their options to negotiating a plea deal or taking their chances at trial, we know that this is not the case. We have convinced federal prosecutors and judges to dismiss charges following indictment.
5. Fighting for Justice at Trial
With hundreds of jury and bench trials under our belts, we are more than comfortable taking our clients’ cases to court. If your best option is to go to trial, we will work vigorously to convince the jurors or judge that the government has fallen short of proving your guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
