Frequently Asked Questions About Federal White-Collar Crimes

How Does a Federal Investigation Begin?


Often, a federal criminal case will start in the same way. Most of the time, a federal law enforcement agency will receive a tip, usually from another agency or an individual. With that tip, it will trigger an investigation. These federal investigations are often conducted in secret, preventing you from learning about the allegations levied against you or your business. The federal prosecutors will present their evidence and case to the grand jury. At that point, the grand jury will see if probable cause exists regarding the crimes outlined by the U.S. Attorney. If the grand jury agrees with the federal prosecutor, then the government can pursue an indictment against the defendant. If you were indicted or facing an investigation, you must immediately reach out to our dedicated federal criminal defense attorneys in Portland, Oregon.

Does a Federal Conviction Mean Jail Time?


Yes, most of these white-collar crimes will carry the possibility of jail time. Over the years, certain white-collar crimes, such as identity theft, mortgage fraud, bank fraud, and embezzlement, have become a top priority of these federal law enforcement agencies. The U.S. Attorney’s Office actively pursues convictions of those accused of white-collar crimes. With that, you need a team of experienced federal criminal defense attorneys to avoid some of the harshest penalties of these convictions.

When Should I Get a Lawyer?


You will want to hire an attorney right away. It is never too early to start getting legal advice about your case. However, if you delay seeking legal help, it may be too late to turn the case in your favor. If you believe the government is investigating you or there are accusations about your business, you need to contact Oberheiden P.C. immediately.

What Evidence Will the Government Use During the Trial?


Any evidence gathered from the investigation could be utilized by the federal prosecution. According to the United States Constitution, all law enforcement agencies must respect your rights during the investigation process. With that, federal agents cannot conduct an illegal search of your home or take a personal statement without notifying you of your legal rights. If that occurred in your case, you need the help of an experienced federal criminal defense attorney to keep that evidence out of the courtroom. Make sure to talk to our criminal defense team to learn about the admissibility of evidence in your particular case.

What Is the Track Record of the Oberheiden P.C. Team?


At Oberheiden P.C., we will not delegate your case to junior associates or paralegals. Only a senior attorney will work on your federal criminal case. Our legal team is committed to you. When you hire us, our senior attorneys will be with you at every step of the legal process.

Our law firm is proud of our successful track record. Over the years, we have defended hundreds of individuals and business entities against federal white-collar accusations. Some of the outcomes for our clients have included dismissed indictments, trial acquittals, and dropped criminal charges. Depending on the type of accusation and the stage of your case, we can bring similar results in your particular situation. With our experience and background, we have one of the best legal track records in the area. When your reputation and livelihood are at risk, you need to work with a reputable legal team.
