How Do Federal Crimes Investigations Work?
When a federal law enforcement agency suspects you may have committed a crime, they launch an investigation, gathering evidence to justify filing charges. Once they have sufficient evidence to take the next step, they may obtain a search warrant or, if the case has progressed far enough without a search, they may place you under arrest.
Federal agencies have substantial resources available to investigate alleged crimes. The high-powered nature of federal prosecutors can intimidate you and potentially tempt you to provide a statement or agree to a plea bargain.
Federal agents and prosecutors know the level of power they yield, and they may try to use this influence to trip you up. For this reason, you should never attempt to face a federal crimes investigation or charges alone.

If you can get a lawyer prior to the filing of federal criminal charges, it can work to your significant advantage. With the ability to get in front of the situation, your lawyer may convince federal prosecutors not to file charges or to pursue lesser charges that don’t carry the same level of penalty.
