Establish An Early Defense

In the initial stages of a federal investigation, prosecutors gather crucial information to support criminal indictments. Much of this information is collected from people without a warrant. The witnesses are usually interviewed without an attorney.

Grand Jury Investigations

When you enter a grand jury room you are on your own. You are entitled to have an attorney outside of the chamber and may step outside to seek advice. But inside, you are on your own with no attorney to speak for you and no judge to moderate the prosecutor's tactics.

Many grand jury witnesses are eventually charged with crimes and become subjects of prosecution themselves. The unique situation in the federal grand jury system emphasizes the need for effective legal counsel. At The Law Office of Kevin L. Barnett, we offer critical guidance to clients during grand jury investigations
