PRESERVE EVIDENCE OF INNOCENCE
A prompt defense investigation can save an innocent person from a criminal charge.
A criminal charge can be based on as little as a person saying you have
committed a crime. The police and prosecutor do not need other evidence
to bring a charge. If a jury believes the person who accuses you, you
The police often don't search for evidence that contradicts an accusation, only for evidence that supports it.
You have a right to remain silent. Anything you say will be used against
you. If you try to tell the police a different version of events, the
police often hear and record only what supports their version.
A prosecutor who only knows one side of the story will probably file a
charge. Once a charge is filed and becomes public, damage is done -- to
your reputation, to your good name, perhaps to your job, career, or
relationships with friends or family.

investigating detective or to the prosecutor before they file a charge.
Our defense investigation can change their perception of the accusation
so no charge or a less serious charge is filed.
