In tough economic times, even reputable businesses must make difficult decisions to stay afloat. For many business professionals in Texas and throughout the United States, this may lead to allegations of misrepresentations made to lenders. An FBI investigation for commercial real estate fraud can destroy a real estate enterprise unless it is met with a proactive and aggressive defense.
The FBI conducts investigations that can last years before an indictment is ever filed. However, once an indictment is made, the government is already prepared for trial. Witnesses are many times threatened with prosecution and allegations are then made in order to escape lengthy prison sentences and heavy fines. Dan C. Guthrie, Jr., focuses on early involvement that proactively counters the efforts of an FBI investigation to do everything possible to prevent an indictment from ever being filed.
If you are the subject of an FBI or IRS criminal investigation, consult an experienced defense lawyer and start preparing your defense strategy immediately.
