Grand Jury Subpoenas and Investigations

If you have been subpoenaed to appear before a state or federal grand jury, "Yes" you have to appear and "No" you do not have the right to have your attorney present with you in the Grand Jury Room when you do appear before the Grand Jury. State and federal rules of evidence do not necessarily apply in Grand Jury investigations and any testimony you give before a Grand Jury will be under oath and can be used against you. Your Fifth Amendment right of self-incrimination is, however, still in effect and after consulting with your attorney, you may be advised to invoke that right and decline to respond to specific questions.

As you can tell, a Grand Jury subpoena is to be taken seriously. If you receive a subpoena to appear before either a federal or state Grand Jury, contact an attorney immediately. All too often an individual finds out that he or she is the suspect in a criminal case only after receiving a Grand Jury subpoena.

If you receive a Grand Jury Subpoena - contact an experienced criminal lawyer.
