Finding a qualified lawyer for federal criminal charges can be difficult in Fort Worth. Many of the best criminal attorneys in Tarrant County do not practice in federal court. The federal system has completely different laws and rules for practicing. A good place to start is finding attorneys that are Board Certified in Criminal Law, because this means the lawyer at least has learned (from study) how the federal criminal system works. However, you should also consult an attorneys Texas State Bar profile page to see whether the lawyer is licensed to practice in the federal district where your case or investigation is pending.
