Federal Grand Jury Investigation Attorney in Los Angeles
Grand Jury Investigations
When someone is suspected of a crime , evidence is gathered by law enforcement officials and presented to a grand jury, who decides whether there is enough evidence of a crime to issue an indictment and take the case to trial. If you are being investigated, it is absolutely vital that you obtain the services of a qualified attorney as soon as possible. Because this is a crucial time in your defense, if you have a skilled Los Angeles Criminal defense attorney providing you with legal advice, you are more likely to avoid prosecution. If you are being asked to appear before a grand jury, you must be prepared to answer properly to avoid seriously damaging your rights. An attorney cannot appear with you in t he grand jury room when you testify, but can provide you with appropriate advice prior to appearing. In addition, you may step outside of the grand jury room to seek further advice as needed.
