What can a lawyer do for me before my case is filed in court?
Our team can talk to the investigating officer, try to find out the basis of their investigation and convince them to not drop their investigation. We can also talk to the prosecutor and try to persuade him or her from dropping charges or to resolve the matter informally. We try to mitigate. If you are being investigated for felonious conduct, perhaps we can convince the prosecutor to file it as a misdemeanor. If you are being investigated for a theft-related offense, perhaps we can convince the prosecutor that restitution, some impulse control classes and a dismissal may be the best way to go.
Because a formal complaint has not yet been filed, you may have a golden opportunity to hire a skilled, experienced and knowledgeable attorney to engage the investigating and prosecuting agencies to drop or reduce your charges.
Make no mistake. The time to act is now. Call us at (310) 361-3068 or email us immediately for your free consultation.
