Stopping Law Enforcement In Their Tracks

By promptly investigating allegations early on, a criminal defense lawyer may prevent authorities from charging you with criminal offenses in the first place. If our lawyers are brought into a criminal investigation early enough, we 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.
