There are significant benefits to hiring an attorney while being investigated by a state or federal grand jury. As you seek the most promising defense strategies in your criminal matter, increase the odds of the best outcome attainable by seeking quality legal counsel during this process.
At the law offices of Hunt & Tuegel, PLLC, we emphasize the value of representation during the earliest stages of a criminal matter. Pre-indictment grand jury representation in both state and federal legal cases is not a standard practice, but defendants in high-stakes cases sometimes seek our counsel at this time.
Ideally, a defendant will contact us before a case is presented to a grand jury. We have had success heading off cases at that early stage. We have achieved results by assembling facts to present to an investigating officer or prosecutor. Our clients were never indicted in a number of such cases that we handled.
Keep in mind that if we represent you before or during a grand jury investigation, we are not allowed to be in the grand jury hearings with you. However, we can prepare you for those meetings. We can help you navigate the process with confidence.
As a former prosecutor, attorney Russell D. Hunt Sr. has in-depth knowledge of likely lines of questioning in grand jury hearings.
Perhaps you are a potential plaintiff or a witness in a grand jury investigation, rather than the defendant in the criminal matter. We are qualified to advise you in this case, as well. Contact us to learn how we may help you by filing motions to quash a grand jury subpoena or preparing you for possible testimony or debriefings with the government.
Remember that every case is unique. A personalized review of your concerns is the next best step to take. Contact our Waco, TX, criminal defense law offices to schedule a consultation with a lawyer.
