Miami Federal Investigations

Federal investigations in South Florida are more common and more aggressive than anywhere else in the country. If you received a federal subpoena (e.g. Grand Jury Subpoena, CID, OIG Subpoena, DEA Subpoena, FBI Subpoena), or if agents came to your business to interview you or to conduct a search warrant, or if you have any indication that you might be under investigation, we know you have many important questions: What is the investigation about? Am I a target? Will I go to jail? Can this case be avoided, or dismissed, or resolved civilly? Will I lose my license? What should I do now? What is my lawyer’s experience in a case like mine? Who at Oberheiden PC will represent me?

Florida’s White-Collar Federal Trial Team

The team of Miami federal criminal defense lawyers at Oberheiden P.C. are known for their courtroom prowess. Our attorneys have demonstrated their trusted ability to convince judges and juries in countless criminal trials in and beyond Miami, Florida. While many lawyers claim criminal litigation experience, our Miami federal criminal defense attorneys have actually dismissed indictments, obtained acquittals in federal court, and secured probation (against all predictions and recommendations of imprisonment). More importantly — and this is very important for every client to understand—because of our superb trial record, federal prosecutors frequently agree to end the investigation with no charges or to offer unusually favorable plea agreements—or otherwise go to court against us.

Dr. Nick is acutely aware of the intricacies and subtleties of the relevant legal issues, and he is also gifted at explaining the issues in simple, easy-to-understand language. He has an outstanding rapport with the prosecutors - a critical talent for an Attorney trying to prevent prosecution or minimize criminal... exposure of his clients. He is a master of multi-tasking, so you can be rest assured that he is always up-to-date with your representation. I believe that his European background allows him to view the totality of your case from an extra “dimension,” which allows him to craft exceedingly effective strategies and proffers.

Frequently Asked Questions About Federal Criminal Defense in Miami

What should I do if the FBI shows up at my house?

If you get a knock on the door from the FBI, the first thing to keep in mind is that you do not need to speak with them. If FBI agents have a search warrant, you will need to let them inside your home or business, provided the warrant specifies the correct location. However, even if FBI agents tell you it will “look bad” if you don’t talk, don’t talk. Instead, reach out to a dedicated Alaska federal criminal defense attorney as soon as possible.

What is a target letter?

A target letter is typically sent by the U.S. Attorney’s Office to someone who is the target of a federal investigation, although other federal agencies may also send target letters. The U.S. Attorney’s Offices uses target letters in both criminal and civil investigations, and it may not be clear from the letter which type of case the government is pursuing. Regardless, if you received a target letter, it’s safe to say the federal government is very likely going to bring charges against you. Consulting with an experienced Alaska federal criminal defense attorney is crucial to protecting your interests if you’ve received a target letter.

Should I talk to federal investigators if they ask to speak with me about my case?

While there are some situations in which speaking with, or even cooperating with federal law enforcement can work to your benefit, you should never talk to law enforcement without an attorney present. You have a right to have an Alaska federal criminal defense lawyer present whenever speaking with anyone in law enforcement. Further, federal agents are under no obligation to tell you the truth when speaking to them. They may approach you with a casual tone, asking to “clear up a few things”; however, their true intent is to catch you off guard in hopes of you giving them information that will help the case against you.
