We will be addressing several topics over our coming articles. Issues which we will analyze include:
- Challenging illegally seized evidence
- The use of experts in such cases
- Taking such cases to trial
It is crucial that a defendant understand these issues. First, it is more common than one may think for law enforcement to obtain financial information from computers, smart phones, or even paper files in ways which violate the Fourth Amendment. If police or F.B.I. officials violated one’s Fourth Amendment rights then it may be possible to keep any illegally obtained evidence out of Court. Second, in cases involving complicated financial issues it is often necessary for the defendant to retain an expert who can analyze bank records, and other documents, and present an opinion to the jury. Finally, knowing what to expect from the trial process will help to ensure that things go as smoothly as possible.
