Federal Criminal Defense


If you are a target of a federal criminal investigation it is imperative you contact our office immediately. Federal criminal cases are very time-sensitive and must be handled by a lawyer who is experienced in dealing with federal authorities and the United States Attorney’s Office. Craig Greening has handled several federal criminal prosecutions including narcotics conspiracies, counterfeit currency operations, felon in possession of a firearm, bank robbery, Lacey Act violations at the Canada/North Dakota border, private insurance, medicare fraud and sexual abuse cases.

If you are arrested for a federal criminal violation, do not allow your attorney to waive the probable cause/detention hearing. Valuable information can be ascertained from the Government at the hearing from the testimony of the federal agent in charge.

Federal criminal acts are sentenced using the United States Sentencing Guidelines (USSG). The USSG calculates a range of punishment by calculating an offense level for the specific offense alleged and compares that to your criminal history.

The Supreme Court of the United States has made the Sentencing Guidelines advisory. Our firm has been very successful in reducing sentences below the Guideline Range.

Absolutely the best & brightest lawyer around!
Craig is one of the finest criminal defense attorneys around. He's incredibly courteous and makes himself readily available to his clients. He has a case management software program that lets you correspond with him via messaging (super convenient). This is great because the same system sends you notifications for your hearings dates & times, scheduled conference calls/meetings and updates in the status of your case. Even if Craig is in trial, I almost always receive same day answers to my questions that I submit to him. Moreover, Craig is a fantastic litigator who not only knows the law, he connects to the judge and juries. He is very personable and there is no doubt in my mind that he is fighting for me in every possible way. Craig is a true trial lawyer, not one of those attorneys that tries to plea out your case so he can be done with you. If you’re charged with a crime, the legal process can be a scary. By hiring Craig, I could have not made a better choice with whom to trust my freedom!

Best Lawyer I know!
He has done everything possible with my case in helping me with information, paying, and doing the most and best he can for it with the situations and outcome!! He listened to me and my s/o when we first met to talk about it. I was absolutely sick and terrified at first and he has eased a lot of my stress and tension with how he is professional and courteous! He makes your feel comfortable each and every time you speak to him or see him; he makes time for you if you feel the need to ask question about anything. I've already told several people about him and will continue!!!!

My Hero
Mr. Greening did an amazing job with my case! I was charged with a class A misdemeanor, and he was able to get the case dismissed very quickly! He works really hard on making sure his clients questions are answered, and he is willing to have last minute meetings whenever we would like to meet with him. I am very pleased with his service, and if needed (God forbid I get in any trouble again), would definitely want him as my lawyer again!

Mr. Greening did an outstanding job handling my case. He was always very helpful and friendly. His staff did an amazing job as well. They always returned my phone calls within a reasonable amount of time and were very helpful. Mr. Greening was very knowledgeable about the law and how to direct me during my case. I would definitely recommend Mr. Greening if anyone needed counsel in his area.

Life Saver
Craig Greening has represented me in several cases and has had ticket after ticket dismissed for me. He has represented me in two seperate state jail felony cases and got me a fine with a misdemeanor conviction. The second state jail felony he had zreduced to misdemeanor as well followed with a light probation of two years. He also got me released from probation early as well. If you have a bad expierience with Craig Greening it is because you are a bad client and did not follow his directions. Craig has stood by me even when I was not a good client. I totally reccomend Craig for any criminal concerns anyone has.

DWI Charge Dismissed
On August 3, 2014, I was arrested for DWI after getting pulled over for driving the wrong way on a one way street. I had blown under the legal limit, but I was worried about a possible conviction ruining my future. It was the first time I had ever been arrested. Luckily, a friend had referred me to Craig Greening. He managed to get my DWI charge dismissed and reduced to a traffic fine of driving the wrong way and the Administrative License Revocation (ALR) Hearing thrown out. So, I had never lost my driving privileges. One of his assistants helped me to get through a student conduct hearing at Texas A&M, and I was found not responsible. In a word, I highly recommend him to anyone facing criminal charges.

Second Degree felony Charges Dropped
Craig is a top notch attorney. I was indicted and charged with 2 counts of a second degree felony 6 years ago. Craig has been my defending attorney from day 1 and he has finally been able to get both the charges dropped . I was highly impressed by his strategic / analytical brilliance in this tricky and difficult defence .He was successfully abIe to dominate those dueling momemts in the trial over the judge and prosecutors during this complex criminal trial. On top of that he was very cordial and friendly. I highly recommend him for any clients for any criminal cases.

Great Attourney - trustworthy and very professional
Craig is a very knowledgable attourney and will represent you well. Most importantly, he is trustworthy and will get the job done well without cheating you of extra expenses. I highly recommend him.

Waste of time and money
Greening does not care about cases that aren't huge federal cases that will make a name for him. If you are not a huge federal case he doesn't spend any time on your case and acts like its a huge inconvenience when you "bother him" for a meeting. You are constantly given the run around and would most likely do better representing yourself. He does not communicate in a timely manner IF at all and he is rude and treats you like you are less than him and a nuisance. I feel extremely disrespected by the way he does business and will never do business with this man again.
