Nobody Talks, Everybody Walks. Ohio criminal defense lawyer with nearly 40 years experience

“I was wrongly convicted of murder. I spent nearly 17 years in prison fighting my case. When I finally won a new trial, I chose Greg Robey to be a part of my defense team. He found an FBI agent who had worked on the case in the 1980s, along with critical pieces of evidence that we thought were long lost. After a long and very hard-fought trial, I was found Not Guilty of all charges. I owe my freedom to Greg Robey and my defense team.” -R.R., Ravenna, Ohio

White Collar Crime Investigations: What You Need to Know

While being investigated for any type of criminal activity is a serious matter, if you are suspected of committing a white collar crime, you could face federal charges. Many people under investigation for white collar crimes do not understand their rights and therefore make mistakes that jeopardize their case.

The moment you believe the Federal Bureau of Investigation or other law enforcement agency is considering you as a suspect in an ongoing investigation, follow the steps below:

  • Seek professional legal help —  The law is complex. If you do not have a legal background, you may have difficulty understanding the criminal justice system and your rights. Therefore, it is vital that you retain experienced criminal defense help as soon as possible.
  • Do not consent to a search — If law enforcement officials wish to search your home, they need a warrant or your consent. Surprisingly, many individuals consent to a police search — a terrible mistake. If law enforcement agents are asking for your consent, it means they do not have a warrant and require your permission.
  • Invoke your right to remain silent — In the event that police question you about your involvement in any type of criminal activity, politely request an attorney and state that you are invoking your Fifth Amendment right to remain silent.

Whether you are accused of embezzlement, fraud, identity theft or any other type of white-collar crime, your freedom and your future may be at stake. Yet with the assistance and guidance of a skilled and aggressive criminal defense attorney, you may be able to have the charges against you reduced or even dismissed.
