Federal Investigations Must Be Taken Seriously

The very idea of a federal criminal investigation can be stressful. Seeking counsel during this complex time is crucial. I have worked with clients throughout Tennessee for 38 years to fight against charges of all types, including white collar crimes, serious drug offenses, sex crime allegations and murder charges. I can examine the situation you are in, provide you with an honest assessment and come up with a plan as to how to move forward. My job is to advocate on your behalf.

What You Can Expect

If you are under investigation by the federal government, it is imperative that you have an attorney who understands this area of the law. Whether you are a subject, a target or a witness, everything you say to an investigator could have major consequences. From wiretapping your phone to reviewing your financial documents, they will stop at nothing to build a case. The federal court system is different from others, and the sentencing can be much more severe.

If you believe you are under investigation, your first step should be to contact an attorney. In doing so, the investigators officially become aware that you have representation. This means that when they talk to you, a lawyer has to be present. If a lawyer is not there, it’s important that you stay silent. In doing so, you could protect yourself. Understandably, many people don’t know what to do when they find themselves in these circumstances. Rest assured that I will give you the defense you deserve and will not back down from a challenge.
