About me

Whenever possible, it is highly advisable to seek legal advice as soon as you
become aware that you are under criminal
investigation
. Don't wait until formal charges are filed or returned in an
indictment. David Elden is an experienced lawyer and works proactively to begin
defending clients as soon as he is retained. His aggressive pre-indictment
investigation may be able to prevent charges from being filed in the first
place. He will identify witnesses and go after their statements before law
enforcement agencies like the FBI are able to do so.
