Proven Counsel for any Federal Charge or Investigation

If you know or believe you are the target of a federal criminal investigation, you need to hire an experienced federal crimes attorney. There is no time to lose. Our East Texas federal defense team’s foremost goal will be to prevent indictment if possible. If you’ve already been indicted, we will build the best possible defense for you.

You Need Dedicated Attorneys Who Know Federal Court Procedures

Any federal case in Texas is a serious case because your freedom and future are clearly on the line. The rules are different than in state courts. Conviction rates are high. Federal prosecutors are highly skilled and well prepared. Sentencing is tough. Your defense team’s experience and aggressiveness will be pivotal.

At Bain, Files, Jarrett & Harrison, our attorneys know their way around the U.S. District courts of East Texas. We have earned the respect of judges and opposing counsel in courts from Sherman to Beaumont, Tyler to Texarkana and elsewhere. We have decades of experience representing people accused of all types of federal crimes, including:

  • Federal drug crimes, which often involve substantial quantities, transport, drug manufacturing or a combination of drug and weapons charges
  • White collar financial crimes such as bank fraud, wire fraud, securities fraud, embezzlement, money laundering and tax evasion
  • Engaging in a criminal conspiracy, resulting in charges under the RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations) Act or other federal statutes
  • Possession of child pornography and other crimes often committed using the Internet
  • Violent crimes such as bank robbery, carjacking, capital murder and other federal felonies carrying the stiffest penalties
