Grand Jury Investigations
The Law Office of Corey I. Cohen & Associates is ready to represent you aggressively if you are the target of a grand jury investigation. Once you receive the target letter, you need to call us immediately. Do not let time go by while the government is building a case against you.
At The Law Office of Corey I. Cohen & Associates, we know both sides of the system to help get you the best results. Our founding attorney, Corey I. Cohen, is a member of the Federal Criminal Justice Act (CJA) panel for the Middle District of Florida. We approach each grand jury investigation from a position of strength and a determination to deliver results for our clients.
Contact The Law Office of Corey I. Cohen & Associates to schedule a free initial consultation and discuss your options if are being investigated by the federal government and there is a grand jury proceeding. It is essential to begin your defense while there is still time to work with the prosecutor before the case goes to the grand jury.
In felony cases brought in federal criminal court, there will be a grand jury proceeding before formal charges are filed and a person is arrested. The purpose of the grand jury proceeding is to determine if there is enough evidence to charge someone with a crime and what charges should be brought. The grand jury does not decide if a person or a company is actually guilty of a crime.
If you have received a target letter — a letter saying that you are a person of interest in a federal investigation — you must hire a lawyer. The lawyer will contact the federal government (United States Attorney’s Office) and will set up a meeting to discuss the case and see what steps can be taken to avoid a grand jury indictment against you. If you ignore the letter from the federal government and do not hire an attorney, there is a strong chance you will be indicted. In some situations, your lawyer may be able to negotiate immunity in exchange for your testimony.
If you have received a target letter or are the subject of any federal or state grand jury investigation, you should know what you are facing and have our experienced attorneys on your side to protect your rights.
