Problem Avoidance
This includes a wide range of activities, from counseling concerning “preventive maintenance”, to limiting the scope of an investigation through negotiations with the U.S. attorney or prosecutor. Often the most effective representation is that which results in the matter not reaching the stage of a criminal charge, indictment or grand jury investigation.

Responses to Investigative Problems
Upon receiving a request for an interview from a law enforcement agent, a subpoena to appear at a hearing or to produce business records or other documents, or an arrest warrant, our office, through investigation and negotiation, is often able to narrow the investigative process, reduce the proposed or contemplated charges, and/or convince the prosecutor not to bring a charge.

Responses to Invasive Criminal Procedures
An arrest, the execution of an arrest or search warrant, or service of a Grand Jury Indictment are frightening and invasive experiences to persons not accustomed to dealing with criminal enforcement authorities. Our prompt response and advice can make this process more understandable. We have vast experience in matters of bond and release pending trial, which are critical to secure freedom pending court appearances. Additionally, we advise and can provide support to clients with respect to minimizing collateral damage to reputations and business interests.
