Fighting for the Best Result in Your Case

The key to obtaining the best result is often having representation early in your case. It is also important to retain a lawyer that is familiar with the particular criminal law procedures and practices that are most effective in Dade, Pasco County, FL. Call to speak to one of our attorneys today.

Hiring Attorney Before a Filing Decision is Made

If you have been arrested for any felony criminal offenses, keep in mind that the State Attorney's Office takes 21 days to make a filing decision. Having an attorney early in the case gives you the best chance of convincing the prosecutor not to formally file felony charges, or to only file reduced charges. It is usually more effective to try and prevent the felony charges from being filed in the first place then it is to fight the charges after they have already been filed. Don't lose one of the most important battles in your case by not having representation during the first 21 days after your arrest for any felony criminal charge.
