Defending Against Federal Investigations

Any time a federal agency believes you are engaging in suspicious activity they have the right to and will investigate you. Federal law enforcement agencies are so powerful because they have almost unlimited resources – as they are a section of the government of the United States of America. If you or someone you love is under federal investigation do not wait, contact a federal criminal lawyer, because you will need an attorney experienced in handling federal crimes and federal criminal charges. You do not want to wait until you are actually charged with a federal criminal violation and having a Chicago Federal Criminal Attorney from the beginning may keep you from having to start the investigation after charges have been filed and with the assistance of an experienced federal criminal lawyer you may be able to avoid having charges field at all. It cannot be stressed enough the seriousness of federal criminal charges, if you are convicted of any federal crimes you will find your life changed as that federal criminal conviction will follow you forever. Get in touch with an experienced lawyer immediately if you are facing a federal investigation.

You may not even be aware a federal agency is checking into your activities. The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) or Internal Revenue Service (IRS) will not inform you they are investigating you. Unlike state criminal charges that mainly occur with an arrest directly after criminal activity has occurred – federal charges are usually brought forth by way of indictment. In order to bring an indictment the federal law enforcement agencies will fully and completely investigate the alleged criminal activity and bring the case to the United States Attorney who will present the case to the grand jury. If you are being investigated by the feds then you will need an experienced Chicago Federal Criminal Lawyer that will assist your through the investigation process and make sure that you do not incriminate yourself or that none of your constitutional rights are violated. Our attorney has years of experience dealing with these federal agencies and be aware that is not the same as dealing with local police as they have a lot more resources available to them.

Chicago Attorney Defending Against Federal Investigations

Do not mess around if you are being accused of forgery, insurance fraud, mail fraud, tax evasion or any other federal crime. Contact a federal criminal lawyer, as there are things that can be done today. Perhaps the federal agency investigating you may have wrongly accused you, or it could be that you were in the wrong place at the wrong time and only a federal criminal attorney experienced with the different agencies will be able to keep you from any punishment for a crime you did not commit. We will also be with you every step of the way until the case is settled and you will have his team working to ensure you do not have to wait behind bars while the case is resolved. Your rights are of the utmost importance to us.

You do not want to take your chances with an attorney inexperienced in a federal courtroom. The prosecutors available to federal agencies have years of combined experience between them. Do not think they only handle drug or interstate crimes. You need an attorney who can handle all types of cases. Whether your crime is considered white-collar or not, we have the resources, skills and experience to properly handle and defend against any federal investigation.

He understood that I made a mistake but it didn’t define who I was...

"I am so appreciative of the help and support that I received from Michael and his team members! They truly helped me figure out my case and I got outstanding results. If anyone can help you get great results, it’s Michael. I had an immigration issue as well and he worked with my immigration lawyer to help find the best solution. He understood that I made a mistake but it didn’t define who I was. I definitely don’t want to go through any of this again but I’m glad that I had the support to get through this."
