Pre-indictment Federal Defense
Federal investigative agencies such as the FBI, DEA, or the Secret Service have a duty to protect the nation’s interest. To enforce the rule of law, they have been given certain powers. These federal agencies investigate allegations of individuals or corporations that maybe violating federal laws.
If you are under federal investigation you maybe contacted by the Agent who is doing the investigation. DO NOT SPEAK WITH THEM. Inform the agent that you have an attorney and that they will reach out to them. You do not want to explain your side, or worse yet admit any wrongdoing. You do not want to testify at a grand jury’s proceeding without counsel.
If you are contacted by federal law enforcement, you should contact Moses and Rooth, Attorneys at Law immediately to make sure your interests are protected. If the case goes to an indictment, then we will need to fight the indictment and find cause to have evidence excluded if possible.
People in such situations often have no clue about the progress on their case. The secretive nature in which the Federal agencies work does not help either. We will not only answer any questions you may have about your case but also open a channel of communication with the government, to see the status.
