If you are subpoenaed to appear in front of a Grand Jury, it is essential to consult an attorney. Although a prosecutor may tell you that you have nothing to worry about by appearing before the Grand Jury, the prosecutor is not your advocate and he is not necessarily looking out for your best interest.
Grand Jury law is complicated. You have rights and you need a lawyer to protect those rights. You need to know why you are being called to the Grand Jury, and what kind of exposure you may face. It may be in your best interest to talk freely, it may be in your best interest to exercise your Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination. Having an experienced federal criminal defense attorney by your side, here in Baltimore, is essential to making this decision.
