Pre-Empting Charges/Precharge Representation

If brought into an investigation early enough, Christa Groshek may be able to redirect or pre-empt an investigation. It is not unusual for investigators to "go on a fishing expedition" — talking to witnesses, trying to get a suspect to talk or asking for information on someone — in the hopes of finding anything that will justify opening a full-scale investigation. When this happens, meeting with investigators to answer questions and dismiss unfounded suspicions can pre-empt an investigation against you.
