Dallas has become a center of federal law enforcement. Following recent directives from the Washington D.C. Justice Department to enforce federal law more aggressively, federal prosecutors and investigators in North Texas have begun to target more businesses and individuals in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. As a result, it seems no day goes by without new reports on crackdowns, federal arrests, and search warrants.

Nearly all federal agencies are conducting investigations in Dallas at this point. A large portion of target letters, grand jury subpoenas, and case notices center around the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), and the DEA. All are in cooperation with the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Dallas-Fort Worth. Currently, among the most enforced offenses in the Northern District of Texas are the following:

If you received a grand jury subpoena, a target letter, or if you are under investigation, were recently arrested, or were charged with a crime in the Northern District of Texas, you must act. The more time the government has to investigate, the more difficult it is to maintain control of the situation. Speak to one of our Dallas white collar criminal defense attorneys right away, including weekends.

Federal criminal defense is not the time for guesswork. If you are charged with any of these crimes, beware of harsh penalties. There are no second chances in the federal justice system. It is important to choose the right lawyer to protect your interests from the beginning of the case. More than in any other area of law, demonstrated excellence and a proven record must be the two key criteria when seeking a Dallas federal criminal defense attorney.

Several Oberheiden, P.C. white collar crime lawyers have held prestigious positions within the Justice Department, for example as DOJ Trial Attorneys, Assistant United States Attorneys, Special Assistant United States Attorneys, and Criminal Trial Chiefs at the U.S. Attorney’s Office. They have first-hand understanding of how the government builds a case and how to defend you.

Why Do Dallas Clients Choose Oberheiden, P.C.?

Dallas is home to some of the best law firms and finest attorneys in the country. This can make choosing the right attorney difficult. Many people contact Oberheiden, P.C. to ask us about our experience and how we are different from other Dallas law firms. We appreciate these questions because they show the potential client understands the seriousness of federal cases. It’s the smart thing to interview and test different lawyers before making one of the most important decisions of your life. In the end, searching for a lawyer comes down to these questions: Who can help in the most difficult time of my life? Who has the experience and the record to protect me? Who do I trust?

1. A Passionate, Locally Available Team

If there is anything different when comparing Oberheiden, P.C. to other firms, it is the wealth of experience and the composition of our team. The Dallas office of Oberheiden, P.C. features former DOJ officials, former U.S. prosecutors, and passionate litigators, all team up to provide clients the best quality counsel possible. We mix the insights of former prosecutors with the academic excellence from Yale Law School graduates. We connect clients with lawyers who have spent their careers developing compelling defense strategies. We would be delighted to offer these services and skills to you as well.

2. Respected By Law Enforcement

No matter what the experience, no matter how great the academic backgrounds of the lawyers—at the end of the day, clients want, and deserve, to know about our success rate. How did you resolve cases similar to mine before? What results did you achieve in past cases?

Oberheiden, P.C. is proud to share its case history. For clients who contacted us early in their case, we often avoided criminal prosecution. Sometimes, even when we inherited a case from another lawyer who recommended a plea. We have protected the licenses of many professionals. We have assisted law enforcement officers and prosecutors when they themselves needed help. If police officers and current prosecutors call our firm to defend them, the quality of our legal services is well known and respected.

3. We Are Federal Trial Lawyers

Many people visit with Oberheiden, P.C. because they feel they are innocent and they have done nothing wrong. Nonetheless, their previous lawyer told them to admit their “guilt” and to plead guilty. Let’s be clear, that’s not how the federal justice system is structured. If you are innocent or if you committed an offense but did not do so intentionally (as the law requires), then it may very well be in your best interest to go to trial. Remember, the government must convince 12 people you are guilty. We only need to persuade one out of these twelve people that the government can’t meet the “beyond a reasonable doubt” burden. Why give up this important advantage?

When it comes to federal trial experience, Oberheiden, P.C. is hard to beat. Our Dallas white collar crime attorneys have tried hundreds of criminal cases and supervised many more. We have obtained dismissals, acquittals, and probation outcomes in some of the toughest cases. Please contact our federal trial attorneys first before making a decision to accept a guilty plea.

FAQs: Important Questions Regarding Federal Prosecutions in Dallas, Texas

What does a federal criminal case look like?

Most federal criminal cases proceed similarly. First, federal law enforcement agents receive a tip, usually from an individual or another government agency. This triggers an investigation into the allegations. Federal investigations are nearly always conducted in secret to prevent the subject of the investigation from learning about it. Federal prosecutors present their case to a grand jury as soon as they complete their investigation. If the grand jury determines that there is probable cause to believe the subject committed the crimes alleged, it will return a true bill. At this point, the federal prosecutor will be permitted to seek an indictment. An indictment is when charges are formally brought against a defendant. If you are facing an investigation for a federal crime or were indicted, it is critical that you speak to a dedicated Dallas white collar crime attorney as soon as possible.

Does a white collar crime carry jail time?

Yes, most white collar crimes carry the prospect of jail time. Over recent years, white collar crimes, such as:

  • Bank fraud,
  • Identity theft,
  • Mortgage fraud,
  • Embezzlement, and
  • Healthcare fraud, have become federal law enforcement priorities.

More than ever, the U.S. Attorney’s Office is using a harsher policy on those convicted of white collar crimes. With that said, the right Dallas white collar criminal defense lawyer may be able to help you avoid the harshest effects of a criminal conviction.

When should I get a lawyer?

It is never too early to get reliable legal advice, but sometimes it may be too late. If you are accused of a crime or have reason to believe that the government is investigating you or your business, you should call Oberheiden, P.C. right away. After all, what do you have to lose by getting free advice from experienced federal criminal defense attorneys?

What evidence can the government use against me at trial?

Federal prosecutors will attempt to utilize any and all evidence beneficial to their case against you at trial. However, this doesn’t mean they will be able to do so. Per the U.S. Constitution, law enforcement agents must respect the rights of suspects during their investigation. If federal agents conducted an illegal search of your home or business, or took a statement from you without providing necessary warnings, a highly skilled and experienced Dallas white collar crime attorney may be able to file a motion to suppress to have the evidence kept out of trial. Call a respected Dallas, Texas white collar criminal defense attorney to learn more about the legalities of evidence in your case.

Who will handle my case?

Oberheiden, P.C. does not delegate your case to other lawyers and we do not use junior lawyers or associates to defend federal criminal charges. Our client commitment is clear: if you hire Oberheiden, P.C., our senior white collar crime lawyers will represent you.
