Called to Testify Before a Grand Jury?
We provide Grand Jury representation to individuals facing serious charges. Due to the nature of a grand jury, individuals called to testify before it cannot be accompanied by legal counsel into the court room. A grand jury provides a legal setting for prosecutors to present evidence in seeking an indictment on criminal charges against the accused. Depending on the nature of the charges involved, it may be beneficial to retain legal counsel if you are called to testify before a grand jury.
At Rothman & Associates, P.A., our Miami criminal defense lawyers explain how a grand jury works, what legal issues are involved, and how you can protect yourself while providing testimony. Especially in federal cases where prosecutors may introduce conspiracy charges or engage in a “fishing expedition,” understanding what you can and cannot say without perjuring yourself is essential. We also counsel you on your right against self-incrimination and whether or not you should refuse to answer questions in the grand jury room.
Don’t assume prosecutors will keep your best interests in mind — contact Rothman & Associates, P.A. for grand jury legal representation. We will review your case, discuss your testimony with you, and help you prepare for questions you may be asked.
