In some cases, law enforcement agencies will wait to charge suspects until
they have gathered enough evidence against them. This means that they
will often conduct investigations which, depending on the nature of the
crime and the agency involved, can be very intensive and frightening.
If you or someone you love is currently being investigated for a crime
and have not yet been charged, it is important to understand your need
for having legal representation. Investigations are not only scary experiences,
they are also proceedings during which
a lot can be done to defend and protect yourself. Proven attorneys can capitalize on the situation when individuals under
investigation reach out for help as soon as possible.
- Working with experienced attorneys during pre-file investigations can help
you fully understand why you're being investigated and which agency
is investigating you.
- A lawyer can keep you fully apprised of the progress of the investigation
and discuss with you the possible charges you face, the likelihood that
you will be charged, and your available options.
Attorneys who work with clients under investigation can work toward
having cases dismissed before charges are ever filed or having any future charges reduced as much as possible.
- Lawyers can overlook cases to ensure that clients' rights are not being
violated. This includes their right to be protected against illegal searches
and seizures, among others.
Like any criminal case, investigations are always unique, and they demand
the attention of lawyers who analyze circumstances on an individual basis.
