Great attorney and person that cares for the wellbeing of his clients…

Three years ago, I was caught in a political scandal while employed by the City of Fort Worth. I eventually lost my job and career and quickly found myself facing 17 felony counts in Criminal court. I quickly hired Greg Westfall, who took my case.

What makes a criminal case federal?

In the United States, criminal cases can either be federal or state in nature. Federal criminal cases involve alleged violations of federal statutes, such as those dealing with banking and securities fraud, cybercrime, firearms offenses, environmental crimes, and immigration law violations.

In addition to defending clients on these types of charges, the attorneys at Westfall Sellers represent individuals and businesses under investigation for and charged with, violating federal criminal laws related to international drug trafficking organizations, racketeering, and other charges, including:

If you’re looking for the best federal criminal defense attorney in Dallas/Fort Worth, look no further than Westfall Sellers. We can help you prepare a strong defense and protect your rights throughout the criminal process by providing you with the highest quality legal representation for your federal crime charges. 

What is the difference between a federal criminal case and a state criminal case?

Federal criminal charges are different from state criminal charges in a number of ways. First, federal crimes are usually investigated by professional law enforcement officers. These include agents of the FBI, DEA, ATF, DHS, and CIA, just to name a few. Typically, these agents have college degrees, know what they’re doing, and don’t make simple mistakes like some law enforcement officers in the state system. 

Second, the federal sentencing scheme is designed so that the deck is stacked against you for putting up a fight. Unlike the state system, probation is rarely an option. But the lawyers at Westfall Sellers have helped clients obtain lighter sentences (including probation), and in many cases avoid charges altogether.

How do you prepare for a criminal trial?

The process of defending against a federal criminal charge is complex and involves several stages. When you hire us as your Dallas/Fort Worth federal defense lawyers, the process begins with an investigation into the facts of the case. We will thoroughly review all evidence that has been gathered against you and look for any weaknesses in the prosecution’s case.

We will also work with experts to prepare a strong defense strategy. Our attorneys have experience identifying mitigating factors that can be used to mitigate your sentence if you are convicted, such as showing a history of good conduct, demonstrating that you were entrapped in a sting operation*, or arguing that the law enforcement overstepped their bounds in their investigation. We may also file pretrial motions, such as a motion to suppress evidence or dismiss the charges altogether.

Finally, if your case does go to trial, we will provide aggressive representation in the courtroom. Our attorneys have extensive experience in federal criminal defense trials and have successfully defended numerous clients against serious charges similar in nature to yours.

No matter how complicated or overwhelming your situation may seem, our team of experienced Fort Worth/Dallas federal criminal defense attorneys is here to help.
