Anyone in receipt of a subpoena to a federal grand jury or who receives a target letter, should take it very seriously.
At Hale Law Firm, PC, in Raleigh, we provide clear guidance for people who have received subpoenas to testify in grand jury hearings. We communicate with federal prosecutors to determine the targets of the proceeding and advise our clients on how to react to or comply with the subpoena. Often we are able to delay the deadline to appear before the grand jury or to produce documents so that we can carefully determine the best course of action to pursue.
We seek to minimize both the inconvenience and consequences of federal grand jury subpoenas for our clients and work hard to defend people who are targets of investigative grand juries. You can depend on Mr. Hale for skilled and determined grand jury representation.
Experience representing persons subpoenaed to federal grand juries is important.
The number of North Carolina criminal defense attorneys who have actually represented people in federal grand jury investigations is quite low. The founder of our firm, Robert H. Hale Jr., is a former federal public defender who now applies his advocacy skills in private practice on behalf of people facing grand jury hearings and potential federal criminal charges.
While a lawyer will not be able to accompany you into the grand jury room, an experienced attorney can greatly assist in preparation for testimony before a grand jury. First, issues may be narrowed. Second, documents can be produced in a “rolling production.” Third, it is important for witnesses to understand the full scope of the Fifth Amendment to the United States Constitution.
Target Of A Grand Jury Investigation
Anyone who is a target of a grand jury investigation, and even those who are simply a witness to a potential federal crime, should seek experienced legal representation as soon as possible.
Hale Law Firm, PC, will act quickly on your defense by communicating with federal prosecutors, assisting with producing any documents required, and giving effective advice about how best to respond to the subpoena.
