Our Orlando federal criminal defense lawyers provide experienced legal counsel for individuals and organizations facing Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Office of Inspector General (OIG), Internal Revenue Service (IRS), and Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) investigations. To speak with a member of our defense team in confidence, call 407-706-9203 now.

Have you received a target letter or subpoena? Have you been contacted about an interview, or had federal agents come knocking at your door? If yes to any of these questions, be extremely careful about everything you say and do. Facing a federal investigation is a serious matter. It’s not a time to throw caution to the wind or say, “I’ll take my chances,” because you’re confident and have nothing to hide.

The reality is that most people are shocked to learn they are in the crosshairs of the federal government. They are even more shocked to learn they could be at risk for criminal prosecution in federal district court. Federal agencies such as the FBI, OIG, IRS, and DEA are targeting legitimate businesses, healthcare entities, and other organizations. The breadth of federal laws means targets are more exposed to federal criminal charges than they realize.

Our team approach brings the full weight of our attorneys’ collective experience to bear in every case we handle. The reason is simple. We know what’s at stake when you’re facing an FBI, OIG, IRS, or DEA investigation. We know you can’t afford to take chances due to the hefty penalties federal crimes carry. We don’t expect our clients to settle for anything less than the absolute best we have to offer. We approach every case with the same absolute dedication to protecting our client’s future.

This includes experience representing clients in thousands of investigations and trials.
  • We Will Use the Unique Facts of Your Case to Your Advantage. In criminal cases, the facts are of utmost importance. The smallest detail can be the difference between a pre-indictment resolution and a conviction at trial. Our attorneys will study the available evidence in order to find all possible defenses.
  • We Will Make Sure You Feel Confident and Informed at Every Step. We use our experience to help you make the best decisions during the investigation. If it comes to it, we help you decide if accepting a plea deal is a good option. If not, we will be with you taking your case to trial, fighting every charge. It is essential you feel confident in your choice of attorney. We are determined to make this so.
  • We Will Continue Fighting Relentlessly through Trial and Appeals. If an indictment and a plea deal is not in your best interest, we will fight to secure a “not guilty” verdict. If necessary, we will continue to fight for your freedom on appeal. We have highly experienced attorneys at every stage of the federal criminal justice process. Our approach means there is little need for attorneys to spend time on research to understand your case. We get to work quickly because that can make a real difference in your case.

  • Licensed professionals,
  • Public officials,

Our federal defense team has extensive experience at all stages of federal criminal cases.

Why Am I Being Investigated by the…

…Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI)?

The FBI is responsible for investigating cases involving:

  • Terrorism,
  • Computer and internet crimes,
  • Public corruption,
  • Organized crime,
  • Drug crimes, and
  • Healthcare related offenses.

The FBI handles many investigations on their own. It also routinely works in cooperation with other federal agencies. This happens primarily in large investigations of individuals and organizations for serious federal offenses.

…Office of Inspector General (OIG)?

The OIG is the law enforcement division of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. It fulfills its mission “to protect the integrity of Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) programs as well as the health and welfare of program beneficiaries”. The OIG investigates and prosecutes providers suspected of engaging in fraudulent practices targeting Medicare, Medicaid, and Tricare.

…Internal Revenue Service (IRS)?

The IRS’s criminal enforcement division targets individuals and businesses suspected of defrauding the federal government. This includes underreporting income, hiding assets, and committing other violations of the Internal Revenue Code (IRC). Some federal cases focus exclusively on alleged tax crimes, but in many cases, the IRS and other agencies work together to prosecute:

  • Tax evasion,
  • Money laundering,
  • Securities fraud,
  • Medicare fraud, and
  • Various other white-collar offenses.

…Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA)?

The DEA investigates drug crimes ranging from manufacturing and distributing illegal drugs, such as cocaine, methamphetamine, and heroin, to prescription drug fraud. One of the DEA’s top law enforcement priorities is diversion control (or preventing the unlawful distribution of opioids and other addictive prescription drugs). It has also resulted in an increased number of ad hoc DEA investigations targeting physicians, pharmacists, and other healthcare providers.

Facing a Federal Investigation in Orlando, FL: Answers to FAQs

Q: What penalties could I be facing as a result of a federal investigation?

If under investigation by the FBI, OIG, IRS, or DEA, you may face federal criminal charges. Charges may include substantial fines and long-term imprisonment. Depending on specific conditions, you could be at risk for other penalties as well. In cases involving allegations of healthcare fraud, providers may lose their Medicare, Medicaid, and Tricare eligibility as well as their DEA registrations.

Q: If I am under investigation, what are the chances that I will be found guilty?

We can’t reliably assess your risk of conviction until we gain a detailed account of the facts and factors involved in your case. While a guilty verdict is certainly a possibility, we have protected numerous clients against federal criminal convictions and have resolved many of our clients’ investigations without charges being filed. Even if you believe that you may have committed a federal crime, there could still be facts that provide you with a complete defense (e.g., if federal agents conducted an unconstitutional search or seizure). As a result, you should not make any assumptions about your case until you speak with a qualified Orlando federal criminal defense lawyer.

Q: How long do I have before federal prosecutors will seek an indictment?

The answer to this question depends upon numerous factors as well. How long has the investigation been ongoing? What evidence does the government have against you? These are questions we will need to answer as soon as possible, so we can build and execute a customized defense strategy.

Q: Is it possible to negotiate a plea bargain in a federal case?

Yes, negotiating a plea bargain is a possibility in federal cases. However, at this stage, it’s far too early to consider a plea. During your free initial case assessment, our team will help you understand the current status of your case and discuss available options.

Q: Can Oberheiden, P.C., represent me in Orlando, FL?

Yes, we maintain a national practice, and we are able to represent clients throughout Florida. We have a location in Winter Park where we can meet with you by appointment. Or, our attorneys can arrange to meet with you on-site at your location if necessary.
