Did you know that you can fight a criminal charge even before it has been formally filed? A pre-file investigation is an action an attorney can take to begin investigating and building a defense on your behalf even before charges are filed.
While under investigation, you may be pressured to incriminate yourself or otherwise give up your constitutional rights, simply because you don’t know any better or because you want to cooperate with law enforcement.
You have the right to an attorney to represent you. The Law Offices of Paula Drake will communicate with law enforcement agencies on your behalf, taking an enormous weight off your shoulders, and possibly minimize the consequences that you could be facing.
By acting quickly, Criminal Defense Attorney Paula Drake may be able to gain the upper hand and keep you from being arrested. We utilize the services of a licensed private investigator for all investigative needs. We may be able to uncover evidence or witnesses who will be able to prove your side of the story and get the charges dropped.
Once you have been contacted by a law enforcement agency and suspect that you or a loved one is under investigation for a crime, it is important to contact Paula Drake who can protect your rights.
