Pre-File Intervention & Early Representation
Speak to Our Renowned Los Angeles Criminal Defense Team Today
If you become aware that you are the subject of a criminal investigation, you need to act swiftly and with purpose. By taking steps against the filing of charges, you may be able to avoid having criminal charges filed against you altogether.
When you have criminal charges filed against you and go to court to defend yourself, even if you are found innocent or charges are dropped, they can still appear on your record when someone performs a background check on you, and may still damage your reputation. The best way to avoid the negative stigma of a criminal trial is to take proactive defensive steps to avoid having charges filed against you.
If you believe you may be charged with a criminal charge such as assault, battery, domestic violence, or a white-collar crime, then contact a Los Angeles criminal defense attorney from our firm as soon as possible.
In cases like this, time is of the essence, so call (800) 462-7160 today.
FAQ: Pre-File Intervention
Question #1: What is pre-file intervention?
A: Pre-file intervention allows an individual accused of a crime but not yet charged to challenge the police investigation and make a case for why criminal charges shouldn’t be filed.
Question #2: Why do I need a lawyer for pre-file intervention?
A: A skilled criminal defense attorney can help you conduct an independent investigation into the alleged crime and collect physical evidence and witness testimonies. Your attorney can also request to receive a summons so you can appear in court instead of dealing with the shame of being arrested at home or in public.
Question #3: When should I involve a lawyer if I want to use pre-file intervention?
A: If you are accused of a crime or discover you will likely be a suspect in a criminal investigation, then you need to involve a reputable lawyer as soon as possible. Once you obtain counsel from a competent lawyer, law enforcement and the prosecution will be forced to deal with your lawyer, who knows what to say and how to address their questions, warrants, and other issues that might arise. A knowledgeable lawyer can also determine if your rights are in jeopardy and what you need to do to protect them.
