Federal Investigations in Houston, TX

Protect Your Rights During the Investigation Process

If you are a local resident in or around Houston and believe that you are currently or soon to be investigated by federal law enforcement agencies, it is strongly advised that you speak with a Houston criminal defense attorney from our firm as soon as possible. Federal investigations are fueled by extensive resources and funds, and the various federal agencies involved are specially trained and intent on building a strong case against the accused.

This means that by the time you are formally indicted and aware of investigations, there is a high probability that the government has already gathered substantial evidence against you. Seeking counsel from our legal team as soon as possible can help you better understand your rights during the investigation process. Additionally, we can ensure that your rights are not infringed upon, that no unlawful search or seizures are conducted, that you are prepared for any questions that may arise, and that your right to due process is secured.

During the initial stages of federal investigations, the Law Offices of Billy Skinner can also evaluate your case and conduct investigations that aim to collect and preserve evidence in your favor. In some cases, this may allow him to negotiate dismissals or other terms in your favor prior to a formal indictment. With more time allotted for these pre-indictment investigations through swift action on your part, your case can be significantly strengthened.

Federal Indictment

If you or your loved one has already been indicted, there are still many things that our Houston federal crime defense lawyers can do to improve your circumstances. If we represent you during the pre-indictment investigation, this gives us a better idea of how to defend your case at trial and gives us a preview of the strategies and theories that may be used by the Assistant United States Attorney in court. If you are the subject of a criminal investigation or have been indicted, do not speak to federal agents, law enforcement officers, or other investigators without having your lawyer present. Speaking to investigators can potentially help your case, but only when any statements you make are based on the advice, support, and direction given to you from our team.
