Preserving and protecting due process and constitutional rights
Accusation, investigation, indictment—terrifying words for anyone in the unfortunate position of alleged unlawful conduct.
Police, judges, attorneys and potential jurors are moving fast. The field is crowded, and navigating the right path is tricky.
Early representation is critical in avoiding prosecution and in minimizing potential damage to either individual or corporate reputation. Some government investigations start out as seemingly simple audits or requests for records, but quickly escalate into full-fledged criminal prosecutions. A conviction could not only lead to a criminal record, possible jail sentence, and/or hefty fines, but also to a loss of income. That’s why early intervention by attorneys with experience in representing clients in regulatory inquiries is often the difference between being charged criminally or not.
