Investigations

Deals with investigations conducted by various govt. agencies (USDOL, USCIS, DOS, DOJ, FBI)

DOL obtains $638,000 in wages and debars a New Jersey Company for one year

Here is an excerpt from a press release from USDOL. I have said this many times before, - government investigations are NOT the same as litigation or practicing transactional immigration or corporate law. This is an entirely different area of practice. We as counsel need to know the law, compliance as well as litigation. We must approach all investigations in the spirit of good faith compliance, yet protect our clients from unnecessary liability. The investigators are not only investigators, but in effect also prosecution and judge.
