An Experienced Michigan Federal Investigations Attorney
Are You Under Federal Investigation?
If you have reason to suspect you are under federal investigation, it is crucial to seek legal representation as soon as possible. The government has a seemingly endless supply of resources it can use to make a case against you. Before the investigation proceeds any further, ensure that your rights and interests are protected.
Important Information About Federal Investigations
When you are under federal investigation, the evidence against you can mount quickly, and it is often complex and technical. You need an attorney who understands the federal investigative system and procedures.
Attorney John Freeman spent seven years as a federal prosecutor. He uses his experience and knowledge of criminal law to aid clients who are currently under federal investigation or who have been charged with federal crimes.
Federal investigators from the FBI, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, the SEC and other federal agencies are trained professionals who are skilled in extracting information. The information they collect will be used to bring charges, make an arrest, and prove their case in court.
Federal agents are not trying to exonerate you — they are trying to build a case against you.
Remember this: It is a federal crime to make false statements to law enforcement. If you give false information to federal investigators, you can be charged with a five-year felony. You do not need to be under oath or in court at the time of your statement. Many false statement cases start with a seemingly innocent conversation with the feds. Before you talk to investigators and risk — whether intentionally or unintentionally — giving them any false information, talk to an attorney.
A Media-Savvy Defense
Federal investigations can result in ongoing media scrutiny, to the detriment of the accused and the upcoming legal case. If negative publicity is a consideration in your case, you can be assured that attorney Freeman will handle media relations with tact and good judgment. During his tenure with the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Michigan, Mr. Freeman prosecuted many serious felony cases. While working to provide a strong defense, Mr. Freeman also pays attention to the public relations aspects of charges involving public figures.
