Boise Law Firm Defends You in Federal Crime Prosecution
Advising clients during investigations, prosecutions and trials
If you have been arrested for a crime, you have the right to remain silent and to contact legal counsel. These inalienable rights are granted to you by our U.S. Constitution and apply in both state and federal cases. In addition, the government is prohibited from employing certain tactics, such as warrantless searches, wiretapping and seizures of property.
Founded in 2001, Gulstrom & Govia protects your rights during a federal investigation and prosecution. In addition to collecting exculpatory evidence, we also poke holes in the prosecutors’ case and seek to exclude improperly gathered evidence.

Why should you contact our criminal defense lawyer at the investigation stage?
