In Massachusetts, each of the eleven District Attorneys and the Attorney General investigate and charge every Superior Court case through the Grand Jury. Grand Jury practice is also a significant investigative and charging tool for the United States Attorney’s Office. The Grand Jury is an investigative body that conducts short- and long-term investigations at the direction of the prosecutor handling the investigation.
Grand Jury investigations may call for testimony from dozens of witnesses and may include thousands of pages of documentary evidence. We represent clients and their companies when they are called to provide testimony or documentary evidence to the Grand Jury. Receiving a Grand Jury subpoena is not necessarily a sign of trouble, but we represent clients at this investigative stage to protect their interests.
