Joyce & Bittner has experience in grand jury matters at both the state and federal level and can handle your case too.
What Services Are Provided?
In criminal investigations and grand jury representation, our first goal is to contact the prosecution to determine the strength of the case against you and analyze your legal risks before they even file charges. We want to do as much as possible at the beginning stages to try and scrape away at the case against you. As a result, sometimes our clients never face the most serious charges that the government initially had contemplated.
As a former prosecutor who has worked on cases involving grand jury proceedings on both the state and federal level, Anthony M. Bittner will use his knowledge and experience to assist the clients he now defends in such grand jury matters.
Types Of Cases Handled
Grand juries are most often convened to hear evidence and evaluate investigative information in the most complex criminal proceedings – those involving fraud, sophisticated illegal drug operations, public corruption or organized crime. Prosecutors are under extraordinary pressure to obtain convictions in these cases because of the substantial commitment of investigative resources and the perceived importance of the criminal case.
We have helped individuals facing various state criminal prosecutions, and we are ready to help in others, including:
- Mail fraud
- Wire fraud
- Computer and internet crimes
- Pornography prosecutions
- Mortgage fraud
- Drug offenses
- Insider trading
- Bank fraud
- Illegal gambling
If you’re facing a state grand jury proceeding, your best course is an early and committed defense. For additional information and a free consultation, contact an experienced Pittsburgh lawyer for a grand jury at Joyce & Bittner in Pittsburgh.
