Fast and effective action in securing reputable representation can make all the difference in an arrest or filing or charges. In many cases, individuals are aware of a criminal investigation before charges are filed or even contact with law enforcement has been made. Do not make the mistake of waiting until the police call you to enlist the aid of a criminal defense lawyer.
The Law Offices of Brian E. Gonzalez can assist you in this critical pre-arrest and pre-charge time, ensuring you are prepared for the road ahead. With a wide range of legal experience, our firm keeps you in good hands throughout the extent of the investigation, speaking with government investigators, prosecutors, and witnesses to keep your rights secured. We’ve won favorable outcomes in and out of courtrooms, preventing serious charges and seeking the best legal options for you and your family. In the event that our client has not yet been arrested, we may even be able to cooperate with law enforcement and prosecutors and earn you a more reasonable bond or an “ROR” (release on recognizance).
Remember, an arrest does not mean charges are being filed but it is vital that the State Attorney’s Office be addressed before that happens. In some cases, criminal charges can be dismissed or reduced even after they have been formally filed. As soon as there is so much as a question regarding formal charges, the State Attorney’s Office is already actively reviewing evidence in order to make a final decision. No criminal suspect should make an attempt to speak with law enforcement or prosecutors as this could put a damper on your situation, incriminating you further. If you do, you are taking a risk as words cannot be unsaid and actions cannot be undone. Instead, it is imperative that you or your loved one contact the Law Offices of Brian E. Gonzalez. We can offer you the legal advice you need to succeed in your case and limit any punishments and charges sought to be filed.
