Baton Rouge Federal White Collar Crime Lawyer

The first time you realize you are being investigated by federal authorities may be when you receive a letter from the United States Attorney's office. Or, you may receive a subpoena to appear before a Grand Jury. This letter may or may not advise you of your status in the case. More often than not, a person simply receives a phone call or a personal visit from an investigator from the FBI, DEA, EPA, IRS or some other federal agency.

Responding appropriately from the very outset and throughout the proceeding is crucial. A person in this predicament is best equipped with the benefit and advice of experienced counsel. The old saying about an ounce of prevention being worth a pound of cure has never been more applicable.
