Ohio Federal Criminal Investigations Lawyer

If you have been subpoenaed to testify before a grand jury, federal or state prosecutors believe you have information relevant to an ongoing investigation. You very likely could be innocent of any wrongdoing. In fact, you may have no information or knowledge of the circumstances underlying the federal investigation relevant to provide a grand jury in the first place. Unfortunately, even a seemingly innocent detail conveyed to law enforcement could ultimately cause you or a loved one to be investigated and even, possibly, indicted.

Handling Grand Jury Hearings Throughout Ohio

In addition to conducting traditional police investigations, federal authorities are known to subpoena individuals to testify in a grand jury hearing and/or to produce documents — even before authorities formally charge someone with committing a crime, often a white collar crime, such as:

  • Embezzlement
  • Money laundering
  • Computer fraud
  • Public corruption
  • Mail fraud and wire fraud
  • Mortgage fraud

Federal and state prosecutors subpoena witnesses, "subjects" and "targets" to appear before grand juries as an opportunity to gain more information about possible white collar crimes. A witness is believed to have relevant information, while "subjects" are accused of engaging in suspicious behavior possibly in cooperation with the main "target". Without proper legal protection, a witness or subject could suddenly find themselves the target of the federal investigation.

Even before you receive a subpoena or court order for the production of documents, consult our law firm if you are concerned you could be under federal investigation. Anything you say to federal or state authorities could be used against you or a loved one. You have a constitutional right to remain silent. Entrust attorney La Rue to speak on your behalf to law enforcement; anything he says to federal authorities will remain off the record, and therefore cannot be used against you.
