Pre-Indictment Investigations

Many people recognize the importance of obtaining experienced legal representation once serious charges are leveled against them. However, in many cases, the groundwork for those charges was built through a pre-indictment investigation.

Prosecutors rarely stumble upon the evidence they need to bring complex fraud or other white collar crime charges overnight. Such charges are often the culmination of months or even years of detailed investigation by state or federal law enforcement agencies. In some cases, an internal investigation within a corporation may serve as the springboard that brings the allegations to the authorities' attention.

The pre-indictment investigation lays the foundation for much of the case. It is a critical step in the criminal justice process. As a result, it is just as important — if not more so — to get qualified legal representation before charges are filed and before the allegations go public.
