During the Investigation

 Early representation in any criminal  investigation (1) prevents you  from being interrogated by law enforcement,  consistent with your Fifth  Amendment Rights and (2) allows you to have a  representative that,  where appropriate, can provide information to law  enforcement that is  helpful to you and may prevent charges or result in lesser  charges  filed.  Early representation also  may avoid your arrest and temporary  detention in a jail, and may assist you in  securing a lower bond to  allow your release.   Mr. Eaman’s representation early in a criminal  investigation has often  resulted in no criminal charges for many of his  clients.  Ms. Gabbara has also been successful in  securing the  favorable resolution of cases, including dismissal of all charges,  when  she has undertaken the representation of our clients from the beginning  of  the case.  In other cases, both Mr. Eaman  and Ms. Gabbara have  negotiated with prosecutors to work out an agreement that  minimizes the  client’s criminal exposure, often resulting in no jail sentence  where  it is impossible to avoid criminal charges.  Representation at the  investigative stage is  provided,  for example, in:            


  1. Federal grand jury investigations
  2. FBI investigations
  3. State police or local police investigations
  4. Attorney General Investigations
