If You Are the Subject of a Grand Jury Investigation
Grand jury investigations can go on for many months. During this time, you may be lured into feeling a false sense of security, thinking that nothing will happen or that if it does, you will deal with the problem at that time. This is a grave mistake on your part as you may be losing an opportunity to avoid an indictment and are truly throwing your rights out the window.
Darryl A. Goldberg can evaluate your situation, and depending on circumstances, may be able to convince the prosecutor not to seek an indictment, secure immunity from prosecution or, at the very least, seek a lesser charge. Failing that, he will immediately begin building a strong defense and ensure that you adequately invoke and protect your rights. Please note that the sooner Mr. Goldberg goes to work, the better able he is to protect your freedom.
If You Know You Are Going to Be Indicted
When an indictment is certain, Darryl A. Goldberg may be able to arrange for your surrender on terms that maintain your dignity and minimize the publicity arising from the indictment. Most importantly, he can negotiate terms for bail. Besides sparing you the discomforts of incarceration, being released on bail can enable you to participate more effectively in your defense effort which will greatly improve your odds of success.
If You Are Called to Testify
A person who has been issued a subpoena and is called before a grand jury is wise to obtain representation from an experienced attorney. You may think that because you are not a subject or target of the investigation, you have nothing to worry about. However, what you say could be used against you or used to link you to criminal activity. Darryl A. Goldberg can advise and represent you, with the aim of protecting your rights and helping you avoid unknowingly implicating yourself in criminal activity or otherwise avoiding incriminating statements.
