Under federal investigation for a white collar crime?
If you have learned that you are being investigated for a white collar crime, it is crucial that you waste no time in retaining the services of a criminal lawyer in McAllen. The speed with which you hire legal representation can make all the difference in the final outcome of your case, since it could determine whether you are successful in having the charges against you dismissed or if you end up being convicted and sentenced to a lengthy term in federal prison. Whether you are being investigated by federal, state or local law enforcement, you can come to Guerra & Farah, PLLC for help. Our attorneys have experience representing clients in both state and federal court, and we are ready to intervene on your behalf.
White collar crimes are often the subject of an ongoing investigation, since they normally don't involve an arrest after the suspect was caught in the act, as is the case with DWI,
domestic assault and many other crimes. If you hire an attorney at this stage in the case, you may be able to prevent the situation from proceeding any further, since your lawyer can contact the investigators and seek to resolve any confusion that may have led to you being named as a suspect. Even if this is not an option, it may be possible to prevent an arrest by negotiating with the prosecutor for a plea bargain, or even to have the entire case dropped by demonstrating a lack of evidence or that you are innocent of the charges.
