A Firm That Understands Grand Jury Investigations

A grand jury proceeding is by nature a one-sided affair. Only the prosecution's allegations are heard. In this situation, it is essential to obtain the advice of an experienced attorney — before you walk into the jury room.

If you have been called into a grand jury, you need counsel from an experienced criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. Even one simple, factual statement you make could expose you to a criminal charge, placing your freedom and your future in jeopardy. Under no circumstances should you enter that grand jury room without the advice of a lawyer.

Enlist our skilled legal team from the office of Michael C. Hennenberg for advice. As experienced Cleveland-area criminal defense attorneys, we can review your situation and discuss possible defense strategies with you.

The Advantages Of Early Intervention

Throughout our many years of federal criminal defense practice, our lawyers Michael C. Hennenberg and Justin C. Withrow have learned the value of early, proactive measures. By taking action immediately, our team may be able to:

  • Help you avoid making incriminating statements — At a minimum, it may be possible to protect you from making statements that expose you to a greater legal risk than you are already in. It may even be possible to avoid indictment altogether.
  • Move you down the hierarchy — There is a big difference between being the target of a grand jury investigation and being a person of interest. Depending on the circumstances of the case, it may be possible to satisfy the prosecutor and jury regarding the degree of your involvement in a crime, if not your complete innocence.
  • Begin preparing your defense — If an indictment appears likely or possible, we will begin preparing your defense immediately. Timely work in this regard can have many benefits.
