Defending Texans Charged With Federal Crimes
Criminal defense attorneys are everywhere, but not every lawyer has the background, skills and experience to adeptly handle federal criminal cases. I am defense attorney Abundio Rene Cantu, and I represent clients in Laredo and throughout South Texas against federal criminal charges.
Before founding The Cantú Law Firm, I served as a prosecutor, working on a wide range of cases, from drug charges to violent crimes. I have immense experience representing individuals and alleged organized crime leaders in federal court. From fighting to move your case from federal to state court or reducing your charges from a felony to a misdemeanor, you can rely on me to advocate for the most favorable outcome in your case.
Helping You Avoid The Harsh Consequences Of A Federal Conviction
Federal crimes are often more severe and have harsher consequences than state cases. From trafficking large amounts of drugs across state lines to fraud and white collar crimes, you need an experienced federal crimes defense attorney to help protect you.
Common examples of federal crimes include:
- Large-scale seizures of cocaine and other illegal drugs
- Transporting of controlled substances without authorization to do so
- Human smuggling of illegal aliens
- Kidnapping across state borders and other violent crimes
- Assault on border patrol agents
- Illegal reentry into the United States after deportation
- Weapons violations
- Felon in possession of a firearm
- White collar crimes
- Money laundering, wiretapping and conspiracy to commit crimes
No matter how serious or complex your charges are, I am ready to hit the ground running in your defense. After our first meeting, I will get started right away on investigating the evidence against you and preparing strong arguments in your favor. I am always willing to try a case if necessary. I will also collaborate closely with appellate attorneys when an appeal becomes necessary.
