Protecting Your Future

Public corruption or bribery investigations or prosecution have the ability to destroy a person's career as well as his or her public image. As with most white collar crime matters, the government generally relies upon grand jury subpoenas to gather information and aid the investigative process.

In public corruption and bribery cases, it is not unusual for a federal agent to show up at your door unannounced and ask to speak with you. Remember, you have the right to remain silent until you have legal counsel by your side.
