Attorney Helping You Through Federal Investigations

In most criminal defense cases, you are arrested and charged before you have an opportunity to hire a lawyer. When you are facing federal charges, however, a criminal charge is typically not made until after a lengthy investigation lasting months or years. If you discover that you are under investigation, this may give you an opportunity to be proactive in your defense.

The first thing you should do if you are under federal investigation is to contact an attorney. In Hennepin, Ramsey or Dakota counties — or throughout Minnesota — there is no better choice for legal representation experienced in this type of practice than criminal defense attorney Kevin J. Short.

Knowledge that you are under federal criminal investigation usually comes in two ways. One way is that you or your business is on the receiving end of the execution of a federal search warrant. Sometimes people learn they are under investigation when they hear that federal investigators are interviewing their friends and business associates.
