Sometimes the best defense to a criminal charge comes before charges are even turned over to the prosecuting attorney for review.

  • Police want me to make a statement
  • I'm being investigated for a crime
  • A search warrant was executed at my home
  • I was arrested but not yet charged with a crime
  • I was arrested for drunk driving but don't have a court date
  • The police took a sample of my blood
  • I was fired from my job and now the police are contacting me
  • I have a warrant outstanding for my arrest
  • I was arrested but my case hasn't opened with the courts
  • Someone is making allegations of a crime against me

Sometimes the best defense to a criminal charge comes before charges are even turned over to the prosecuting attorney for review.  Just as medical health professionals advise that early intervention is often the key to successful recovery, early intervention of an experienced criminal defense attorney can be the key to preventing or reducing charges.

What Do The Best Criminal Defense Attorneys Do To Defend A Criminal Investigation?

Ethically, lawyers cannot and should not make claims about themselves such as being “the best.” Instead, lawyers should stand on their experience, ratings, reputation, and results.  The best practices for Defending a criminal investigation include:  intimate knowledge of the local police agencies, prosecuting agencies, and courts; a thorough confidential client interview; obtaining all preliminary case discovery, if possible, including in-car and body-cam police video, audio dispatch recordings, 9-1-1 audio recordings, interviewing any witnesses, independent private investigation, and monitoring a case to try to prevent an ambush or surprise arrest.
