Before Charges are Filed

With You Every Step of the Way

What Happens Before Criminal Charges are Filed?

The Steps Of A Criminal Defense Case

Criminal cases can be far reaching and tremendously complex. Details which are uncovered during an investigation can cause law enforcement to refocus their efforts and an individual may be under investigation long before they are contacted by the police. If you discover that you are a suspect in an ongoing investigation or have reason to believe that you may be charged with a crime, contact the Law Offices of Evan E. Zelig, P.C. immediately and begin building a defense. Our criminal defense attorney can fight to protect your rights and advise on how to limit your legal risk.

Do not wait to begin protecting your rights. Call (707) 418-5352 today.

The Legal Repercussions of Criminal Charges

Each moment that passes gives law enforcement an opportunity to build a case against you and without proper legal representation, you risk facing the full punishments associated with a crime. Do not make the mistake of assuming that you are not at risk until charges have been formally filed. Many people may not know that the act of being charged for a crime itself may appear on your criminal record, regardless of if you are acquitted or if charges are later dropped. It is important to get in front of potential accusations and our firm can work tirelessly to maximize the chances that criminal charges are never filed.
