How Do You Know You're Under Federal Investigation?


If you commit an offense that violates federal law, rather than having Michigan police involved, a federal agency will handle the investigation, before potentially turning the case over to a U.S. attorney. If you know that you are under investigation, you can begin taking steps to defend your freedom, beginning with hiring an experienced defense lawyer. But how do you know when you are under federal investigation? Some potential indicators are outlined below, but if you want to know for sure whether or not you are under investigation, work with a federal defense attorney who has experience defending clients in the early stages of criminal cases.

Is A Federal Agency Investigating Me?

Usually, you will find out you are under investigation when agents come to your door, or otherwise approach you to ask you questions about a case you are suspected in. You may also hear from others that agents are asking questions about you. Agents may tell you that you are the subject of their investigation, or may simply ask questions without letting you know how you are connected to the case. Either way, it is important that you get in touch with a lawyer as soon as possible if you have been questioned in connection with a federal case.

If agents come with a warrant, it is much more certain that you are the subject of the investigation.

Federal Target Letters and Federal Charges in Michigan

In some cases it will be very evident that you are the subject of an investigation, because at a certain point, you may receive a letter stating that you are the target of a federal investigation. These target letters often will ask you to come in and meet with investigators or a member of the U.S. attorney’s office. You should never respond to a target letter without first securing a legal representative who can guide you through what to say and do to help your case. Our lawyers will do whatever it takes to protect your best interests and are available now to start working with you.
