Grand Juries


Being subpoenaed by a grand jury can be scary. Especially so when you learn that your lawyer cannot accompany you to testify. The purpose of a grand jury is simply for the prosecutor to have a legal setting to present evidence regarding the criminal charges they have filed against the accused. At Dhar Law, LLP, we strongly recommend retaining experienced legal counsel if you have been called to testify before a grand jury. Although you cannot be accompanied by a Boston grand jury lawyer, we can thoroughly discuss your testimony and help you be fully prepared.

You can rely on us to provide you with a free, confidential consultation to discuss your case. Call our grand jury attorneys in Boston today at (617) 829-9747.


The main reason for a grand jury is to review evidence and hear testimony. These proceedings are secret and, in most cases, the prosecutor’s argument is the only one presented. They convene the grand jury and present their side of the case. If the grand jury finds that a crime was committed, they return an indictment, which is then filed. Throughout the decades we have been in practice, we have counseled clients who have been called to testify before a grand jury countless times. We are intimately familiar with the way grand juries work and how best to prepare our clients.

Our firm advises clients who have been called to testify before a grand jury for many different offenses, including:

  • White collar crimes
  • Weapons violations
  • Kidnapping charges
  • Fraud crimes
  • Federal investigations
  • Drug trafficking
  • Racketeering


Although our experienced grand jury attorneys in Boston cannot come into the courtroom when you testify, we can help you prepare. We can help ensure you understand what to expect, explain the subjects and questions that may come up, and make sure you know how to answer these questions. There are special ways that you can address certain issues and questions that arise without incriminating yourself or committing perjury. Anything you discuss with our firm is protected, which means that our conversations are confidential and cannot be subpoenaed.
