Criminal charges are not always filed immediately. In many cases, law enforcement
officials conduct an investigation first. Sometimes this investigation
involves the officers coming to your door and speaking with you about
allegations of an assault or another crime. Other times, the investigation
is much more thorough, particularly in cases involving sex crimes or white
If you believe you are under investigation, you are not required to cooperate
with law enforcement and answer their questions. In fact, officers are
trained to get you to waive your rights and incriminate yourself. It is
often better not to work with them directly. Instead, you can enlist an
experienced Bloomington, IL criminal defense attorney to protect your
rights. At Johnson Law Group, our attorneys will start fighting immediately
to prevent charges from being filed against you.

What does pre-file investigation mean?
Pre-file investigation is a unique service offered by our law firm. Our
willingness to begin even before a criminal charge has been filed is an
example of our commitment to aggressive representation; our commitment
to the best possible outcome.
Our attorneys havenearly 100 years of combined legal experience, not only in criminal defense, but in prosecution and law enforcement.
We know how law enforcement officers conduct investigations and how prosecutors
build cases. We have been on the inside, so we know how to work with our
opponents in order to achieve a positive outcome.
By conducting a pre-file investigation, we may be able to:
- Prevent filing of criminal charges
- Divert criminal allegations into an informal resolution
- Reduce criminal charges
- Assist with surrender and avoid arrest
Our track record of success is evidence of our commitment to our clients. In one case, we represented
a person being investigated for multiple instances of credit card fraud
and identity theft. We conducted a pre-file investigation. We worked with
bank officials and law enforcement officers. Eventually, our lawyers convinced
the prosecutor not to file charges.
Obviously, our pre-file investigation services make sense in terms of the
results they can provide. They also make sense financially. If successful,
you avoid the cost of full-on criminal defense and trial representation.
In addition, we offer these services on a flat fee basis. You pay us once,
up front. If we are not successful, this fee goes toward your defense costs.
