As one of the Twin Cities, St. Paul is the capital of Minnesota, along with being a county seat of Ramsey County. With its position overlooking the mighty Mississippi River, St. Paul has become the business hub for the state. Many businesses and organizations call the city home, including several federal law enforcement agencies.

Since these agencies are located throughout the downtown area, they have the staffing and resources to open an investigation against anyone in the region. Unfortunately, that can leave many business owners, executives, and healthcare providers vulnerable to an inquiry. While you may have believed that you have done nothing illegal, an in-depth look from the government can uncover inconsistencies in your business records and procedures. If you learn about a pending white-collar criminal investigation or have been indicted, you need a skilled and knowledgeable team on your side. Oberheiden P.C. is ready to help residents throughout the St. Paul, Minnesota, region.

How Will Oberheiden P.C. Work for Your Side?

The complexities of federal criminal cases make it vital to have legal representation that understands the federal court system. At Oberheiden P.C., we focus predominantly on federal criminal defense. Unlike state defense lawyers who only work in the state-level system, our legal teams stay up-to-date with the latest legal developments and initiatives set by the U.S. Department of Justice. When you retain our services, we offer one major advantage over other firms: many of our defense attorneys are former prosecutors and trial lawyers with the United States Attorney’s Office and the Department of Justice. With our numerous years of experience prosecuting criminal cases, we bring a unique perspective to the defense table. In the past, that has allowed us to anticipate the prosecutors’ strategies during investigations and trials.

Our federal criminal defense team of senior attorneys has handled thousands of federal investigations and numerous federal trials throughout their careers. We work collaboratively to build a strong defense for our clients. During these legal proceedings, we use our extensive knowledge and experience to fight for your rights, protecting you against unnecessary consequences.

St. Paul, Minnesota, FAQs About White-Collar Criminal Cases

Q: Which Agencies Can Investigate Me?

At Oberheiden P.C., we understand that numerous federal agencies may be involved in investigating and prosecuting white-collar crimes. The type and nature of the allegations will determine the specific agencies involved, including the U.S. Department of Justice, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigations, U.S. Department of Labor, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General, U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, and U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Our team of experienced federal criminal defense attorneys has a wealth of knowledge and experience representing clients in investigations involving these agencies. We can provide our clients with aggressive and effective representation during these cases.

Q: What Are the Potential Penalties in These Cases?

The penalties for a white-collar crime conviction can be severe and vary based on the specific offense and the defendant’s criminal history. Prior convictions, even for unrelated crimes, can increase the potential penalties. White-collar crimes can range from relatively minor offenses to those that carry up to several decades in prison for each conviction. All of these crimes are considered felonies. In addition to incarceration, a defendant may also face significant criminal fines, be ordered to pay restitution to the victims, and be required to serve a probationary period following release from prison.

Q: What Should I Do If I’ve Received a Subpoena?

The federal government can use a grand jury subpoena to secure information during a white-collar criminal investigation. Keep in mind that a grand jury subpoena is not without limits. There are restrictions both on the reasons behind the request for information and the amount of information obtained from an individual. If you receive a grand jury subpoena, you need to take it seriously and respond in a timely manner. Failure to respond could result in severe consequences, including facing a federal contempt charge. It is not always clear whether you should provide all the requested information or contest the subpoena. For that reason, you need the assistance of an experienced white-collar criminal defense attorney. At Oberheiden P.C., we can be an invaluable resource to help you make the best decision for your situation.

Q: Will a Plea Deal Avoid a Trial?

It is possible to resolve a federal white-collar criminal case through a plea bargain before it goes to trial. Most federal prosecutors are open to the possibility of negotiating a plea agreement, especially if there is a high risk of not securing a conviction. However, many prosecutors are reluctant to dismiss charges before trial. With the experienced team of Oberheiden P.C. on your side, we can help negotiate a plea bargain or have charges dismissed before trial. Our team can help you assess your options, negotiate the best plea agreement, or work on dismissing the charges against you.
