Under Investigation By The Federal Government?
A federal investigation can amount to much more than an embarrassment. In addition to tarnishing your reputation, the potential for criminal charges can derail your plans or even threaten your business organization. Experienced legal representation early in the investigation can influence the outcome in a big way.
At the Bellwoar Kelly, LLP, our attorneys have a thorough understanding of the federal investigation process. Our goal is to help you avoid charges whenever possible. Barring that, we will go out of our way to ensure that the law enforcement agency and federal prosecutors don’t overreach.
Aggressive Defense Against Federal Agencies
Our lawyers can aggressively represent you during all stages of the criminal defense process — including before charges are filed. As former prosecutors, we know how to formulate the best defensive strategy for your circumstances. Whether you are a private individual, or a prominent member of a corporation or nonprofit organization, or even a public official, you can count on us to safeguard your rights during a federal investigation.
We have defended clients against numerous federal agencies, including:
- Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives
- Drug Enforcement Agency
- Department of Justice
- Federal Bureau of Investigation
- Federal Trade Commission
- Food and Drug Administration
- Securities and Exchange Commission
- Commodity Futures Trading Commission
Building A Proactive Defense
At the earliest stages of a federal investigation, we can conduct our own internal investigation to detect and correct any wrongdoing. Our lawyers know how to provide requested information to investigators without giving them additional information to use against you.
Our experience in federal cases allows us to make educated predictions about how any evidence gathered during an investigation could be used against you. This allows us to formulate a strategic defense to the prosecution’s arguments. A strong legal defense enacted well before a case progresses to a grand jury trial can help dismiss or lessen any formal charges. However, trial is sometimes unavoidable, and we prepare every case for court.
