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.

FAQs: Important Questions Regarding Federal Prosecutions in Houston

What is a grand jury subpoena?


A grand jury subpoena is similar to a traditional subpoena issued by state prosecutors, except that it comes from the Department of Justice and pertains to a federal investigation. Grand jury subpoenas come in different forms. Most request the recipient to produce certain evidence federal prosecutors believe is relevant to their case. They may or may not suspect the recipient of any wrongdoing. Other grand jury subpoenas mandate the recipient’s presence and testimony in front of the grand jury. If you received a grand jury subpoena, it is imperative that you contact a dedicated Houston, Texas federal criminal defense attorney to discuss the best possible way to respond.

What types of crimes does the federal government investigate?


The federal government investigates all federal crimes including drug crime, healthcare fraud and white collar crime. Many federal crimes have state-crime equivalents, for example, most white collar crime is a violation of both state and federal law. Generally, state prosecutors will defer to federal prosecutors when deciding whether charges will be filed in state or federal court. Federal prosecutors are more likely to get involved in those cases that are more serious, more complex ,or more well-known . Additionally, some crimes are always brought by federal prosecutions, such as violations of federal statutes. Ii is an incredibly serious situation to be facing federal charges. Reach out to an experienced Houston federal criminal defense attorney immediately.

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.
