White Collar / Business Offenses

State and federal regulators and investigators have become more aggressive in the current business climate. This trend is pervasive, encompassing industries as diverse as securities, banking, mortgage lending, construction, insurance, healthcare, and professional or privileged licensing.

Today, the likelihood of contacts with these agencies is greater than ever. No government inquires should be taken lightly. Often an investigator’s request to talk about a matter “just to clear something up” is just the beginning of a full blown investigation. Often these requests are the beginning of a lengthy, stigmatizing, and career-damaging inquiry. An immediate determination and evaluation of the nature of any investigation is essential to the well-being of your career and your personal life.

At Adams Law Group LLC, our practice focuses on protecting the rights of Wisconsin business professionals under investigation for criminal and regulatory offenses. Any investigation into your actions as a professional is an attack on your integrity and reputation.

Through early intervention, Attorney Daniel Adams seeks to avoid unwelcome and damaging attention for his clients. Your character cannot easily be rehabilitated after being called into question by the government. In fact, the stigma of a criminal investigation may be worse than the other punishments you could receive if a charge is filed. Attorney Dan Adams works hard to vindicate those who have been wrongly placed under this scrutiny.

In those cases where avoiding a sanction is not possible, Attorney Adams works just as hard to mitigate the effect of our client’s error, poor decision or mistake.

If you have been contacted by law enforcement about an investigation, you need an immediate assessment of your situation. As soon as possible, you and our attorneys can begin to persuade the prosecutors that you should not be charged. Our belief is that a proactive, often cooperative approach, during a prosecutor’s charging decision can pay incredible dividends.

The alternative, passively waiting for a charge, can have incredibly poor results as the prosecutor only hears one side of the story. While you still may be vindicated after a charge is issued, the stigma, expense, and stress of a criminal charge may never heal.
