Any criminal investigation or administrative audit should be taken seriously. Many people make the mistake of believing that an investigation will turn up no wrongdoing, and therefore conclude that they do not need to contact an attorney "yet."
However, in the process of giving interviews, sending written responses, or displaying potential evidence, they unwittingly get themselves into hot water. They apparently do not realize the criminal potential in their financial or drug-related investigation. Consequences can be severe and much more costly in the long run than some targeted legal advice at the outset.
Avoid committing irreversible errors when you respond to investigators of any kind. They may want to meet with you, ask you questions, examine financial records or gather names and contact information of other people involved. You may receive a letter from an IRS agent asking for financial records from several years ago, or a member of your local police department, asking you to bring your computer hard drive to the police station. You may feel unprepared and wonder what to say.
