Hiring an Attorney Before Charges are Filed

If you have been arrested for any felony criminal offenses, keep in mind that the prosecutors for the State Attorney's Office in Bartow take up to 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 greatly 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.
