Guiding You Through Grand Jury Investigations
If you have never been subpoenaed to a grand jury hearing before, you may be confused by the protocol and the procedures. You may have heard the terms grand jury and subpoena on television or in the movies, but until now, they had no meaningful connection to anything related to your world. If you have been subpoenaed to a grand jury hearing to determine if there is probable cause to return an indictment and need legal advice and support, the grand jury investigation defense attorneys at Weisberg Kainen Mark, PL are here to help.
When a prosecutor such as an Assistant United States Attorney utilizes a grand jury to investigate an individual or a corporation, that person or corporation may be subpoenaed to produce documents, or called to appear before a grand jury. One may be called in as a witness, a subject (a person of interest), or a target (the focus of the investigation). If you are called to testify before a grand jury comprised of between 16 and 23 people, it is not unusual to find that, depending on the evidence you give or the way you respond to questions, that you may transform from being a witness to being a subject or even a target. That’s why you need the guidance of seasoned lawyers to help prepare you to face a grand jury and advise you of the right to refuse to testify based on your Fifth amendment privilege to remain silent.
