Nothing is Off-Limits
From the moment government investigators start believing you may be guilty of illegal activity, nothing is off-limits in terms of what they may try to say and do to you when conducting their investigation. Since any and all federal agencies are subject to strict oversight, there is always the possibility your actions have been carefully monitored for quite some time. Thus, even if you have made honest mistakes with no intention whatsoever of conducting illegal activity, government investigators and prosecutors will be eager to use your actions against you to gain a conviction. Since it is not uncommon for investigators to conduct surprise raids of your home or office in such situations, you should always make protecting your legal rights the most important task at hand, which is why you should immediately contact the Spodek Law Group upon learning you are on the government’s radar.
Don’t Make Assumptions
Once you are made aware of a government investigation against you, don’t procrastinate and make one assumption after another as to what may happen next. In these instances, investigators will have the upper hand and will likely reveal as little information to you as possible, hoping to keep you off-balance and making one mistake after another. By having an experienced federal employee defense lawyer working on your case as soon as possible, you can get the legal advice you need early on. By doing so, you will know exactly what you should or should not be doing as your case plays out.
Always Hire Federal Employee Defense Attorneys
Due to the immense complexities that go along with federal investigations, never make the mistake of hiring a defense attorney who is not used to handling such cases. If you do, the chances of losing your case skyrocket. Since there will be an array of federal laws and other related constitutional legalities that will be associated with your case, you will need an attorney on your case who has a specific skillset and in-depth knowledge of how federal investigations work. Once you hire federal employee defense lawyers from the Spodek Law Group, you will have an attorney representing you who can anticipate the government’s next moves and plan strategy accordingly.
Play an Active Role in Your Defense
Once you hire an experienced federal employee defense lawyer to handle your case, don’t assume you can sit back and do nothing while your lawyer does all the work to clear your name. In fact, the opposite will hold true. Upon learning you are under investigation, you should work with your attorney to do everything possible to resolve your case in a favorable manner. This includes not only being truthful with your attorney each step of the way, but also asking questions of your attorney about the investigation and learning as much as possible about the various defense strategies your attorney may use on your behalf. By taking an active role in your defense while of course taking your lawyer’s advice as to what you should say and do, you will have a much better chance of avoiding a conviction that could ultimately land you in prison for decades.
Don’t Waste Time and Resources
When many federal employees learn they are being targeted by government investigators, they waste precious time and resources defending themselves against the wrong allegations. Unfortunately, this plays right into the hands of investigators, since those being targeted almost always disclose information unnecessarily and inadvertently give up many of their legal rights and protections. Once you start down this path, it is very difficult to undo the damage that has already occurred. To achieve favorable results in a federal investigation, you need legal counsel on your side who can use strategic decision-making to their advantage. Rather than make mistakes that will make it much harder to send government investigators on to their next case, schedule a consultation with the Spodek Law Group to discuss your case and learn how you should proceed.
