Pre File Investigation

Pre-Indictment Investigation Attorney Illinois

Pre-File Investigation Defenses in Central IL

If law enforcement is investigating you or your business, there is a chance they will eventually charge you with a crime and arrest you. This is a nerve-wracking experience, and you may be wondering what you can do to protect yourself.

Contrary to what many people believe, it is not in your best interest to speak to the police during an investigation. If you are a suspect in the case, they will be looking for anything that incriminates you. Many people think being cooperative will work to their benefit, but it is surprisingly easy to say things that can make you appear guilty when the words are reinterpreted by law enforcement.

At Johnson Law Group, our experienced criminal attorneys in Central Illinois offer a unique service known as pre-file investigation. Our team can start investigating your case before you are charged with a crime.

What Does a Pre-File Investigation Include?

One of the most valuable things you gain by hiring a lawyer before an arrest is having someone protect your interests when speaking to the police. You have a right to remain silent when the police question you, and it is strongly recommended you exercise this right until you have an attorney present. It’s important that you provide consistent answers with clear details that won’t be misinterpreted in court.

In addition to serving as your intermediary with the police, we can also:

  • Investigate the circumstances of the alleged crime and how they pertain to you
  • Seek informal alternatives to an arrest if a criminal charge is inevitable
  • Start planning your defense strategy
  • Reduce or dismiss charges that could have been added to the arrest
  • Assist with a surrender if necessary

With over 100 years of combined legal experience, our team has an impressive track record of success. We have represented many clients in pre-trial investigations that prevented the filing of charges. This means that an arrest never occurred and never left a mark on a criminal record.

A Cost-Effective Strategy

If you are arrested for a crime, your legal needs are going to increase, which means higher fees. Preventing an arrest will save you both time and money. At Johnson Law Group, we offer pre-file investigations on a flat-fee basis. If you are charged regardless of the pre-file investigation, the fee will go towards the legal expenses for your defense.

Do you have reason to believe you are being investigated by the police? Contact Johnson Law Group today at (309) 565-8825 for help.
