Criminal Investigations


In addition to providing representation for those charged with a crime, we also provide representation to those who may be identified by law enforcement or who are the subject of a criminal investigation.

In these circumstances, our criminal defense lawyers provide the necessary and proactive representation aimed at preventing criminal charges from ever being filed (or, if charges are filed, seeking significantly reduced charges). We also help our clients understand every step of the legal process and diligently protect their rights by representing them before law enforcement and the prosecution.

If you have been or anticipate being questioned by law enforcement, it is generally in your best interest to immediately contact an experienced lawyer who should be present for such questioning.  Statements you make can and may be used against you.  You absolutely have the right to an attorney and are not obligated to make a statement of any kind or answer any questions without having a lawyer present. That is your right as a U.S. citizen.
