Facing A Federal Criminal Charge?

Federal law enforcement agents have seemingly limitless resources with which to investigate allegations of criminal activity. These agencies, working in concert with federal prosecutors build cases over many months, or even years. If you have reason to believe you are the target of a federal grand jury investigation or have been subpoenaed to testify before a federal grand jury, you need the highest caliber of legal representation immediately. By the time a grand jury hands down an indictment, the prosecution likely already has a strong case.

Wherever you have come under indictment in the United States, make sure you have the strongest federal criminal defense team possible protecting your rights. Call the Law Offices of Hanlon & Rief in San Francisco right away.
