Assisting with Pre-File Investigations in FL

A pre-file investigation is a step in the criminal justice process during which law enforcement investigates evidence related to your potential involvement in a crime. This occurs before criminal charges are filed. If law enforcement cannot find sufficient evidence against a suspect during this process, they will not be able to file formal charges.

A suspect should be informed that they are being investigated in a pre-trial investigation. If you have been told that you are the subject of an investigation, it is in your best interests to immediately retain an experienced Fort Lauderdale federal criminal lawyer to ensure that your rights are protected during the process. You will likely be subject to questioning during this time, and you should know that you will not be required to answer any questions until your lawyer is present. By hiring a lawyer right away, you may be able to avoid being arrested or having formal charges pressed against you.
