Dallas has become a center of federal law enforcement. Following recent directives from the Washington D.C. Justice Department to increase their efforts to enforce federal law more aggressively, federal prosecutors and investigators in North Texas have begun to systematically scrutinize an unprecedented number of businesses and individuals in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. As a result, almost no day goes by without new reports about crackdowns, federal arrests, and search warrant executions.

While almost 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, the Department of Health and Human Services, and the DEA in cooperation with the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Dallas and Fort Worth. As of now, among the offenses that are enforced the heaviest in the Northern District of Texas are the following offense types:

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

Federal criminal defense is not the time for experiments. If you fall into one of these categories, beware of the harsh penalties. There are no second chances in the federal justice system, and it is of critical importance for you to make the right lawyer choice to protect your interests from the beginning of the case. More than in any other area of law, demonstrated excellence and a proven track record must be the two key criteria when looking for 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 Department of Justice Trial Attorneys, Assistant United States Attorneys, Special Assistant United States Attorneys, and Criminal Trial Chiefs at the U.S. Attorney’s Office—and have a first-hand understanding how the government builds a case and what to do against it.

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

Dallas is home to some of the best law firms and the finest attorneys in the country. This may render choosing the right attorney difficult. Many people contact Oberheiden, P.C. and ask us about our experience and how we are different compared to other Dallas law firms. We always appreciate these questions because such inquiries show that the potential client understands how serious federal cases are. It is absolutely the right thing to interview and test different lawyers before making one of the most important decisions of your life. In the end, the search for the right lawyer comes down to these questions: Who can help in the most difficult time of my life? Who has the experience and the track record to protect me? Whom do I trust?

1. A Passionate, Locally Available Team

If there is anything that is strikingly 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. employs former DOJ officials, former U.S. prosecutors, and passionate litigators, all teamed up to provide clients the best quality advice possible. We mix the insights of former prosecutors with the academic excellence from Yale Law School graduates; we connect courtroom warriors with lawyers that have spent their entire 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 pedigrees of the lawyers—at the end of the day, clients want to know (and deserve to know): what is your track record? 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 track record. In particular, for those clients that contacted us timely and early in the case, we have avoided criminal prosecution in a large number of cases—sometimes even when we inherited a case from another lawyer and that lawyer recommended signing a plea deal. We have saved and protected the license of many professionals—and even of current law enforcement officers and prosecutors when they themselves needed help in personal situations. What more can we say than this: if police officers and current prosecutors call our firm to defend them, then the quality and sophistication of our legal services is likely more than just a rumor!

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 that you are guilty; your defense lawyers 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 white collar defense 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 whether or not 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 in the same way. First, federal law enforcement agents receive a tip, typically from an individual or another government agency. This triggers an investigation into the allegations. Federal investigations are nearly always conducted in secret in an attempt to prevent the subject of the investigation from learning of the allegations. 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 that the subject committed the crimes alleged by the U.S. Attorney, 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 reach out to a dedicated Dallas, TX federal criminal defense attorney as soon as possible.

Does a white collar crime carry jail time?


Yes, most white collar crimes carry the possibility 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’s priority. Now more than ever, the U.S. Attorney’s Office is coming down hard on those convicted of white collar crimes. With that being said, the right Texas federal criminal defense attorney, may be able to help you avoid the harshest consequences 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 to turn a case around. 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?


Usually, federal prosecutors will attempt to utilize any and all evidence that is beneficial to their case against you at trial. However, this does not mean that they will ultimately be able to do so. Per the U.S. Constitution, law enforcement agents must respect the rights of suspects during their investigation. Therefore, if federal agents conducted an illegal search of your home or business or took a statement from you without providing you with the necessary warnings, a highly skilled and experienced Dallas federal criminal defense attorney may be able to successfully keep the evidence in question out of trial through a motion to suppress. Get in touch with a respected Dallas, Texas federal criminal defense attorney to learn more about the admissibility of evidence in your case.

Who will handle my case?
