Getting Inside the Mind of a Federal Prosecutor: Insights from Our Federal Defense Attorneys

Getting Inside the Mind of a Federal Prosecutor: Insights from Our Federal Defense Attorneys

At Gallian Firm in Dallas, our federal defense attorneys have faced down federal prosecutors who have brought charges against our clients since we began our firm.  We have had charges reduced, dropped, or thrown out on behalf of our clients, even in the most serious of cases.

As our client reviews illustrate, we take every charge very seriously and fight aggressively against any prosecutor bringing criminal charges against our clients.  We play to win.

We understand the unique battle that occurs when facing off against federal prosecutors and have the tools in our toolbox that other federal defense attorneys don’t have. To most people, the inner workings of federal prosecutions may seem shrouded in mystery.  To our defense attorneys, it’s all in a day’s work.  But in this blog, we would like to provide insight into what goes on behind the scenes and why, if facing federal prosecution, choosing the right defense team is crucial.

Federal Prosecutors Have Power and Resources at their Disposal

First, let’s examine the role of a federal prosecutor. Federal prosecutors are legal professionals who wield immense power. They represent the United States government in criminal cases and have tools at their disposal that prosecutors in state or local jurisdictions don’t have available to them. 


Federal prosecutors handle cases that involve violations of any federal law, which often carry more severe penalties and can be complex beyond imagination. Whether it’s federal conspiracy, tax evasion, healthcare fraud, mail fraud, or another federal charge, different departments often have their group of well-funded prosecutors who will come after a defendant without remorse.  Frankly, a federal prosecution strikes fear into most people, whether innocent or not, and it takes a special federal defense team, like the Gallian federal defense team, to fight back and win.

Federal Prosecutions in Texas are Different than in Other States

In Texas, federal prosecutions present unique challenges compared to other states. Texas has a huge landmass and a very diverse population, and Texas shares a border with Mexico, a neighboring country, which makes it distinct from most US states.  International borders, regardless of country, present a set of circumstances that often bring criminal behavior with them.  Texas is a hotbed for federal criminal activity.  

The federal crimes range from drug trafficking and immigration offenses to white-collar crimes and terrorism-related charges. For a federal criminal defense law firm like Gallian Firm, navigating the federal legal landscape in Texas demands a deep understanding of federal statutes, regulations, and precedent.  It also means it is imperative to have seasoned defense counsel by your side if charged with a federal crime in Texas. 

Federal Prosecutors Have Their Own Obstacles to Face

Federal prosecutors face their own hurdles as well.  They don’t operate without limitations and their own set of obstacles.  For one, they must contend with a formidable adversary in the form of the U.S. Constitution. The Fourth, Fifth, and Sixth Amendments, among others, impose strict limitations on the federal government’s ability to investigate, charge, and prosecute individuals accused of federal crimes. As defense attorneys who handle federal cases, we are here to hold them accountable.  Prosecutors must meticulously adhere to these constitutional safeguards. If they don’t, their cases crumble—and it’s our job to make sure this occurs.

Furthermore, federal prosecutions often involve extensive resources and manpower. From the FBI and DEA to the IRS and Department of Justice, federal law enforcement agencies spare no expense in pursuing criminal investigations. As such, defense attorneys must possess the tenacity and expertise to level the playing field and mount a vigorous defense on behalf of their clients.
