Three Simple Rules: When the Feds Investigate You.

Additional resources provided by the author

It is during the investigative stage of a federal case that a defense attorney can frequently persuade a prosecutor that a client is more of a witness to criminal activity rather than a criminal actor. Even where there is strong evidence that a client has committed a federal offense, defense counsel may be able to persuade a prosecutor to limit charges or to close the investigation altogether. Once a federal prosecutor decides to indict, the defendant has already lost an important battle. Whenever possible, it is important to engage a lawyer before that decision is made. No one wants to find themselves at the heart of a federal investigation. But these three rules are universal. Those who follow them greatly increase their chances of obtaining the best possible result. The Law Offices of Thomas G. Briody can assist you when you face a federal investigation.
