How A Federal Criminal Defense Firm Can Help
It is advisable to have a defense attorney on-site during the investigation, search and request for documents that precede federal grand jury hearings. We will protect your rights by ensuring that evidence is handled correctly, that the rules of discovery are adhered to and that all evidence presented to the grand jury is admissible.
Before the hearing, we may also be able to negotiate with the prosecution and/or explain your position. In some cases, we can resolve the matter at this stage and avoid an indictment.
