Pikeville, Kentucky Federal Criminal Defense
Dr. Nick Oberheiden – a Pikeville Federal Criminal Defense Lawyer with a Consistent Record of Success in DEA, FBI, IRS, and OIG Investigations
If federal agents and prosecutors are targeting you in an investigation, you need experienced legal representation. Left to their own devices, agents with the DEA, FBI, IRS, OIG, and prosecutors with the U.S. Attorney’s Office will keep pressing until they find evidence of criminal activity. And when they find it, they will aggressively pursue a conviction and sentencing at trial. To protect yourself, you need to intervene in the investigation promptly and you need to take a strategic and proactive approach to fending off federal charges.
But, this is not something you can do on your own. The federal agents and attorneys tasked with prosecuting individuals and organizations suspected of health care fraud, prescription drug fraud, tax fraud, and other white-collar federal crimes are very good at what they do. To give yourself a fighting chance, you need to level the playing field. This means hiring an experienced defense attorney; more specifically, an experienced federal defense attorney who has a significant record of success in high-stakes criminal investigations.

Answers to FAQs: Defending against a Federal Criminal Investigation in Pikeville, Kentucky
Q: What should I do if DEA or FBI agents want to interview me?
If you are asked for an interview during the course of your investigation, you should politely decline and refer the agent to your attorney. You are not required to submit to an interview; if you do, your responses will only be used against you. The same holds true for subpoenas and other record requests. While you may be required to disclose some records in some cases, you do not want to unnecessarily hand over anything that could lead to federal charges.
Q: What should I do if I have received an OIG subpoena or a grand jury subpoena from the U.S. Attorney's Office?
If you have received any type of subpoena, you need to immediately begin working on a strategic response. While you will likely need to comply to a certain extent, simply handing over everything is a mistake you cannot afford. Dr. Oberheiden can advise you of your obligations and work with the authority that issued the subpoena to reduce the scope of your obligations.
