The Los Angeles Federal Criminal Defense Attorneys at Wallin & Klarich explain what you should do if asked to testify before a federal court.

There is no 6th Amendment right to counsel in a grand jury proceeding even for the target of a grand jury investigation.  However, counsel may be retained by a grand jury witness and may serve important functions. For example, if you have received a federal subpoena, your Los Angeles federal criminal defense attorney can:

  • learn about the intentions of the grand jury
  • assist you in making an informed decision about how to respond to the grand jury’s subpoena
  • inform the prosecution that you will not be bullied during the testimony
  • counsel you about the risks of testifying or not
  • obtain a continuance of the scheduled grand jury appearance if necessary

 

If a grand jury witness decides to testify, counsel will prepare the witness for the type of questioning likely to occur inside the grand jury room.  A witness has no right to legal counsel inside the grand jury room.  However, your Los Angeles federal criminal defense attorney at Wallin & Klarich will wait outside the room to be available to consult during questioning and will explain which areas are suitable for questioning and which are not.
