About Federal Investigations of White Collar Crimes
The investigation of a white collar crime usually falls under the jurisdiction
of an Assistant United States Attorney. This federal prosecutor will have
almost unlimited resources and a number of federal agents at his or her
disposal. The prosecution team will go through every detail of your case.
They will pull or locate any and every piece of relevant information they
can get their hands on in order to strengthen their case against you.
These documents could include tax and financial information if you are
tax evasion or mortgage and bank documents if you face accusations of
The prosecution team will also be aided by an investigatory grand jury.
This jury is a group of 16 to 23 citizens with the power to subpoena an
individual the prosecution can use in their case. Individuals who have
received a subpoena must appear before the prosecution to answer any questions
or provide any documents they may need. The prosecution usually moves
very slowly, not taking any chances until enough evidence has been collected
to secure a conviction. No matter how serious your situation may seem,
my firm will always be right by your side. My legal staff and I are available
24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Federal crimes means that your rights and freedoms are under an unprecedented attack.
With the full weight of the government and its endless resources being
used in order to prove your guilt, you need to be sure that you have a
criminal defense lawyer that can aggressively fight on your behalf and
is not afraid to stare in the face of the prosecution on your behalf.
Attorney Chris Samuelson is this lawyer.
