Pre-Arrest Investigations

You should contact an attorney as soon as you are contacted by law enforcement or believe that you are suspected or accused of criminal conduct.

We can accompany you to these proceedings and advise you how you should proceed.

You can face additional criminal charges or sentencing enhancements by providing incomplete or false information to federal investigators. Don’t risk this happening to you. Even an honest mistake can have drastic consequences for you. Consult with our lawyers before agreeing to provide an interview, statement or answer questions for any federal law enforcement agency.
