Pre-Filing & Filing Decisions in California

Efficiently Handling Your Pre-Filing & Filing Decisions

Many people are under the mistaken impression that they should wait until charges are filed to contact an attorney. However, it is beneficial to contact a Pasadena criminal defense lawyer as early in the process as possible. At The Law Offices of Paul S. Geller, we strongly represent clients in Pasadena at all stages of the legal process, including the pre-filing and filing decisions stages.

Don’t speak to law enforcement before calling (626) 784-4143.

How the Pre-Filing & Filing Process Works

The legal process varies, depending on the type of crime and specifics of the situation. For many criminal charges, an arrest is made at the time of the crime or very soon after. However, in some drug and white collar cases, investigations are performed and the case is then assigned to a detective for further investigation. Contacting a criminal defense attorney in Pasadena when pre-filing and filing decisions are being made can help enormously.

A proficient Pasadena criminal defense attorney can help by:

  • Finding out what really occurred and making sure law enforcement reports are accurate
  • Shielding you against bias or slant
  • Determining if something is being examined in a helpful way or twisted to use against our client
  • Getting an early start in preparing a strong defense strategy

For these reasons, you should always contact a Pasadena criminal defense lawyer in the pre-filing and filing decisions phase whenever possible. Mr. Geller has nearly two decades of legal experience and has a comprehensive understanding of the criminal justice system. We have helped countless clients in the early phases by ensuring that secure protections are in place.

The Importance of Securing Proficient Legal Representation

As soon as you learn you are under investigation or arrested for a crime, the first thing you should do is contact a qualified criminal defense attorney in Pasadena. Do not speak to the police or answer any questions without a lawyer present because they may use your words against you, even if you were simply trying to explain yourself.

Call (626) 784-4143 to have your case evaluated by our attorney at no charge.
