We Represent Clients Arrested for State or Federal Criminal Charges
So you have been arrested. Or perhaps you haven’t been arrested, but a family member, close friend, business partner or professional colleague has been arrested. If the person arrested is an immediate family member — your spouse, your parent, or especially, your child — your emotions are even stronger than if you were facing criminal prosecution yourself.
You are at one of the scariest and most critical moments in your life. You feel isolated, alone, and terrified. The world seems a dark and hostile place where “they” — the powers you thought were there to protect you and your family, the police and prosecutors — are suddenly out to get you.
“They” are law enforcement and the prosecutors. You know, the ones who always seem like the good guys on television and in the movies. Except right now they are coming after you or your loved one. They are trying to take away your freedom, destroy your family, and generally wreck your life. What can you do to protect yourself? What information can help you make good decisions during the seemingly dark days ahead?

Clients Under Criminal Investigation by State or Federal Law Enforcement
How do you know you are facing a criminal investigation? You are probably under investigation if you are contacted by a police detective, FBI Agent or any other government “field agent” or law enforcement officer who works for any of the federal or state government agencies that investigate crimes under our criminal justice system. Most people know these state and federal agencies by their abbreviated acronyms such as FBI, IRS, CID, ICE, FDA, ATF, DEA, etc.
The typical detective or field agent will attempt to talk to you by stopping by your house and asking to speak with you, calling you on the phone, or, perhaps, even sending you a “target” letter through the mail. The goal of the detective or field agent is to catch you unaware and get you to talk and say or admit things that can provide them with the information they need to arrest you.
Another type of criminal investigation involves the police serving you with a search warrant and then searching and seizing your personal property from your home, office, or car. If they don’t arrest you, it means they need time to analyze the evidence they have seized from you. This happens a lot in complex state and federal criminal cases involving computer data, such as internet search and download histories; financial records, such as tax returns and bank statements; or business and corporate documents, such as client and patient files, expense reports, and corporate minutes books.
In both of these types of investigations, you must keep your mouth shut and do not talk to the agents or the detectives until you have consulted with and retained an attorney. In most instances, anything you tell them can and will be held against you in the event you are later arrested. So, if you find yourself under criminal investigation, please call Conaway & Strickler, PC immediately so that we can help you before it is too late.
Conaway & Strickler, PC has helped many clients who were under criminal investigation avoid arrest altogether. We strive, as experienced criminal defense attorneys, to work with you, the client, and the detectives, field agents, and law enforcement authorities running the criminal investigation to work to resolve the investigation without our clients being arrested. This is, of course, the best result we can achieve for our clients.
