How The Criminal Defense Firm Can Help You Defend Yourself in Tulsa, Oklahoma

Once you are charged with a federal criminal offense in Tulsa, the prosecution team will work relentlessly against you. Prosecutors at the federal level are highly experienced and know how to win federal court cases against accused defendants. Of course, the chances of your case going to trial are extremely low. However, of the cases that do go to trial over 83 percent of those result in a conviction.

Keeping this in mind, you do not want to take any chances in federal court, especially since the penalties of a federal offense can be much harsher than state offenses.

Competent lawyers are essential at this stage of the legal process. Since many cases do not go to trial, you need someone to negotiate with the prosecution team and make a deal with them.

Depending on what you want to do, you will need the right information and legal advice. Our firm can guide you through this process and help you make a decision that will benefit you. We work hard to make sure your rights are defended to the fullest extent.

We Use Our Knowledge and Experience to Improve Your Legal Outcomes

If you do decide to go to trial, having our team on your side will be even more imperative. Again, a conviction in federal court can have harsher penalties, and U.S. attorneys at this level will be looking to convict you to the fullest extent of the law.

Luckily, our team has extensive experience in the federal courts. Not only have we gathered and presented strong cases for defendants under our care, but we have also been on the other side of the courtroom.

How Do I Know If I am Under Federal Investigation?


If you want to know whether you are under federal investigation in Tusla, Oklahoma, look out for these three signs:

  1. An arrest by federal law enforcement agents
  2. An interview by a federal agent
  3. A subpoena or target letter


When a federal agent comes to your home, this is the most obvious sign that you are under an investigation. Usually, an agent will make contact with you for an arrest, but they might also come to your home and try to ask you questions. If this happens to you, contact our law firm right away. You need to know why you are being investigated and what the severity of your charges might be before you talk to law enforcement agents.

Federal agents can also get in contact with friends and family. They could interview the people closest to you in order to get more information. If you notice that this is happening to you, you are probably being investigated.

The final sign that you are under investigation is if you get a letter in the mail from a federal agency. You might be asked for an interview or documents that are relevant to the investigation. Federal agencies might even send you a target letter that lets you know that you are under investigation.

Why Doesn't The Criminal Defense Firm Call Itself the Best?


The attorneys and investigators on our legal team have a long track record of successes both inside and outside of the courtroom for our clients. However, we know that talking about the talent and experience of our firm might not be enough to convince you we are the best criminal defense firm.

In truth, this is the sort of thing that we think is more appropriate for our previous clients to say. When it comes from them, rather than from us, it means far more to people who are in need of legal guidance.

Years of evidence could be gathered by the FBI, DEA, IRS, DOJ, and other federal agencies in order to prosecute you in court. In this situation, you need to hire a federal criminal defense team that can protect you. Failing to invoke your rights and raise an effective legal defense has severe repercussions, including fines, years in prison, and an inability to find employment after your release.
