Grand Jury Investigations
Many people believe that you only have to retain criminal defense counsel when you are charged with a crime. However, the truth is, in many situations it is highly advisable to seek counsel if you have reason to believe you are under investigation by local, state or federal authorities. You may have questions about how much to comply with their requests or demands, what your rights are, and if their tactics are allowable.
For 40 years, the law office of James E. Boren has been representing individuals in all matters of criminal defense, including grand jury investigations and counsel through the process. Before talking to any law enforcement agency or official, including the police or a prosecutor, contact criminal defense lawyer James Boren today to schedule a confidential consultation at our Baton Rouge office.
Grand jury investigations can be intrusive, time-consuming, stressful and costly. We understand how to help you through every part of the process, including when to comply with providing information, grand jury subpoenas, and when to block these actions or be proactive. For instance, in some situations conducting an independent financial self-audit of your business dealings can be used to prove or defend against allegations of corporate fraud, embezzlement, money laundering, skimming or other white collar crimes.
If you attempt to cooperate with prosecutors during grand jury investigations without experienced counsel on your side, you may inadvertently make damaging statements against yourself or others. A prosecutor may offer a plea that sounds reasonable but may not actually be in your best interests.
