People often assume that being arrested for a white collar crime is different than being arrested for a violent offense. The unfortunate truth is that those accused of white collar crimes, like wire fraud, face the same wrath of the justice system as anyone else would. Where someone expects to be treated with respect and professionalism, they might find themselves met with a SWAT team kicking down their door and an aggressive arrest.

If you or a loved one are facing accusations of federal wire fraud in Fort Lauderdale or elsewhere in Florida, it is critical to get legal help as soon as you are able. By involving an expert lawyer early on, you could be able to mitigate the effects of a wire fraud arrest in South Florida or even avoid it altogether. Our team at Rossen Law Firm is here to help you and protect your future prospects, so do not hesitate to reach out.

What Happens Leading Up to an Arrest?

In order to understand federal crime arrests, it is important to understand the role of the grand jury. The primary job of the grand jury is to determine whether there is probable cause to believe someone committed an offense and should be put on trial. The grand jury usually sets the timetable for when a wire fraud arrest is going to occur. Although a wire fraud defendant could be arrested on a complaint, which is an arrest warrant authored by an agent and signed by a magistrate or a district judge, arrests for these charges much more commonly come after the grand jury hearing. Once the grand jury issues an indictment, an arrest warrant can be issued.

In many South Florida wire fraud cases, you might be able to avoid an arrest by negotiating a surrender with the prosecutor. When you hire a lawyer early on in the process, they can communicate with the US Attorney’s Office or Department of Justice trial attorneys to get an idea of where the grand jury is at. From here, an attorney can start the process of preparing for your surrender and initial appearance.

Surrendering for Wire Fraud in South Florida

When you hire an attorney early on in your wire fraud case, they will often be able to arrange a day for you to go to the courthouse to surrender instead of being suddenly arrested. Once you arrive at the courthouse, you will be processed at the marshal’s office. This usually takes about an hour.

You will also be interviewed by someone from the probation office. The interviewer will use the data collected in this interview to draft a report for the judge. You will also have an initial appearance hearing at the courthouse, where the judge will review the probation officer’s report and discuss the conditions of release, which might include bail, travel restrictions, electronic monitoring, and more. Working with an expert attorney gives you the best chance at your initial hearing being the same day as your surrender.

    I had an unfortunate situation with a family member that lead to my arrest and being charged with DV Battery. This was the first time I had ever been arrested so I was very nervous and afraid of what was going to happen to me. After talking with Adam I decided to retain him and let me tell you this was the BEST decision I could have ever made. Adam made me feel so comfortable and confident that everything will turn out the best in my favor. He is professional, ethical and supportive. He was always available too answer any questions or concerns.Not to mention, his team at the office is awesome they are so friendly and welcoming. Anytime I had a question when I called the office they were able to guide me in the rightdirection. They always were in contact with me with any information or updates regarding my case. Adams team is GREAT!Adam delivered, my case was DISMISSED. So if you want an attorney the is gonna fight for you and get the job done retain the BEST there is Adam Rossen!!!

    Adam Rossen and the team at Rossen Law took great care in handling my case. They are very professional, and get the job done. I was particular relieved to see just how much empathy they showed with me, and how effortless it was to be their client.I literally visited them twice. My initial consultation, and then to pickup the final docs. I have nothing but great things to say about these folks, and I would highly recommend them to anyone. Thanks Guys.

    I had an amazing experience with The Rossen Law Firm. The staff were very professional. Attorney Susan Lawson went above and beyond working on my case. We were thoroughly prepared for trial. Mrs. Lawson reviewed hours of body and dash camera footage multiple times and aggressively performed depositions on witnesses and law enforcement.The final outcome for me was the state dropped my case, due to the great work Susan and the Rossen team performed. I didn’t even need to go to trial.This law firm does not play around. They pay attention to detail and they FIGHT FOR YOU!Thank you Adam, team, and a special thank you to Susan for your amazing work! I really appreciate you.

    My experience with Rossen Law Firm was excellent. From the consultation to the end.. My attorney Susan Lawson gave my son's case all the time and attention that was needed to be successful in court. She was confident during all the court proceedings. My favorite part was when she said we are family, never once my son and I were treated other then that. I very much appreciate the knowledge and support I received through Rossen Law Firm.
