Investigations Involving Customs, the DEA, FBI, or ATF
Help From an Colorado Springs Criminal Defense Attorney
Being investigated by a government agency can spell serious trouble for
any business or individual. Many businesses rely on their reputation to
gain new customers and keep the ones they have. When the Drug Enforcement
Administration (DEA), Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI), or the Bureau
of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) starts investigating
your operation, your reputation may be compromised. Potential customers
and business associates may view the investigation as a sign that you
are no longer trustworthy. There is simply too much on the line.

Defending Yourself During Federal Investigations
The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), the Federal Bureau of Investigation
(FBI), and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF)
are government bureaus and agencies who have jurisdiction over customs
regulation and enforcement.
Some common offenses that could result in a federal investigation include:
- Importing illegal substances and drugs into the Unites States
- Importing or exporting stolen goods, items, or property
- Attempting to bring exotic species, endangered animals or other plants
and wildlife into the country
- Traveling into or out of the country with pharmaceuticals without declaring
the drugs or having a valid prescription
- Filing false claims for the payment on goods imported or exported
- Importing or exporting goods without the proper visa or quota

does not mean that you are guilty! Working with an experienced criminal
defense attorney during an investigation can help ensure that your rights
and freedoms are protected. Take no chances when the government is involved!
