Criminal Defense and Government Investigations

More often than not, it begins with a knock on your door. A government agent hands you a subpoena, tells you he has a search warrant, or would simply like to ask you some questions. From that first moment, having the right counsel to guide you is of paramount importance. Before you do or say anything, call us.
