While some criminal charges are brought for crimes that are witnessed by a law enforcement official, it is far more common for arrests to occur only after a criminal investigation has first taken place to establish sufficient grounds for charges to be brought against the suspect. During this period, the individual under investigation may be aware of the suspicions against them. If so, one of the best steps they can take is to procure the services of experienced defense counsel at the earliest possible date to avoid making potentially incriminating statements or doing anything else which may negatively affect their case.
If you or someone you know is under investigation for a criminal offense but an indictment has not yet occurred, the assistance of an experienced defense attorney at this stage can be a significant benefit to your case.

Our Practice Areas
While any type of crime may be subject to a pre-indictment investigation, suspects are more likely to be aware that they are the subject of a criminal investigation in cases involving:
- Drug Trafficking and Conspiracies
- Homicide and Murder Charges
- Sex Crimes
These and other criminal acts which may be the subject of a criminal investigation can have devastating consequences for a suspect if they are ultimately convicted. However, by retaining an attorney at the earliest possible date, the likelihood of conviction for these and other charges can be dramatically reduced.
