Obstruction of Justice

Alabama White Collar Crime Lawyer

Obstruction of Justice: Hindering a Criminal Investigation

Out of fear of prison or public scandal, some people will go to great lengths to cover their tracks. Unfortunately, when those actions constitute obstruction of justice, there may be prison anyway.

Prosecutors commonly add obstruction charges when they are not confident of proving the underlying crime, or to exert extra pressure for a plea bargain. The law firm of Boles Holmes White in Birmingham, Alabama can assert a savvy defense to the charges. Our experienced white collar crime lawyers have over 50 years of combined experience in criminal defense, including charges of Perjury and obstruction of justice.

National Defense Representation for Obstruction of Justice

We have represented the CEO or CFO of major corporations, elected officials and other high-profile clients accused of hindering an official investigation or court proceeding. It can be obstruction of justice to:

  • Give false or misleading statements to law enforcement
  • Commit Perjury in depositions or hearings
  • Destroy evidence (delete e-mails, shred documents)
  • Falsify documents
  • Coerce a witness to lie
  • Threaten a witness, juror, prosecutor or judge

Jim Parkman has practiced criminal defense law for 30 years. He has represented former HealthSouth CEO Richard Scrushy and former Detroit mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, both charged with obstruction of justice among the multiple counts against them. Scrushy was acquitted of all charges.
