Is the Government After You?

Is your business under investigation? Were you notified by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Houston about a pending investigation against you? Did you receive a grand jury subpoena or were you served with a target letter by the Department of Justice for the Southern District of Texas? Is it time to get a lawyer?

If so, this is what you need to know.

The Justice Department recently instructed the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Southern District of Texas, Houston Division, and throughout Texas to maximize its efforts to combat federal law violations. Subsequent waves of arrests, search warrants, and new criminal charges in Houston and surrounding communities have demonstrated the severity of the enforcement.

When Should I Get a Lawyer?

If you are or have reason to believe that you could be under investigation, you should get a lawyer IMMEDIATELY. The reason is very simple. The more time you allow the government to look at your business or your own affairs, the more likely it is that the government will look as long as it finds anything by stirring up the pot and showing up at houses or businesses of your affiliates. Effective federal criminal defense means instant execution of proven defense strategies as well as fierce challenging of the government’s case.
