New York Government Investigation Attorney

subpic2Have you received a subpoena or some other notice that you are part of a government investigation into criminal activity? When a prosecutor launches a grand jury investigation or other proceedings, all suspects and witnesses have cause for concern about where it will lead and the potential impact on their lives.

Learn Your Rights Before You Talk to Authorities

As former First Deputy Bureau Chiefs responsible for training other prosecutors, both partners in our firm have extensive knowledge and insight into a wide range of government investigations. Whether you believe you are currently viewed as a criminal suspect or a witness, it can be a tremendous risk to testify or speak to authorities without strong defense representation.

Legal Counsel Informed by Decades of Experience and Inside Knowledge

Government investigations are often essential for prosecutors to gather evidence of complex “white collar” financial crimes such as embezzlement and fraud including Medicare, insurance or mail fraud. Prosecutors may be striving to file as many serious charges and counts as possible — including enterprise corruption, a felony punishable by up to 25 years in prison.

Understanding your legal rights and avoiding costly mistakes are critical if an investigation is underway into your personal or business dealings — or the activities of your employer or any associate. Applying decades of experience on both the prosecution and defense sides of such matters, our New York government investigation lawyers are dedicated to:

  • Advising our clients whether to cooperate with prosecutors or invoke legal protections such as the constitutional right to remain silent
  • Providing informed counsel through every phase of the process
  • Helping clients avoid an indictment, prove their innocence of criminal activity or negotiate an outcome that minimizes devastating consequences such as prison time or job loss
