Pre-indictment investigations are something that the Clearwater federal criminal lawyers of the Law Offices of Tragos, Sartes & Tragos, PLLC do that not every criminal defense firm will do.
Process of Pre-Indictment
During this process, the lawyers of Tragos, Sartes & Tragos, PLLC find out that a client is being investigated before any charges are filed. They then start a negotiation process with the prosecutor. The purpose of these meetings is to have the case not filed, to have the charges reduced, or to have all parties to the investigation agree to a plea bargain. This is extremely useful for cases that might be embarrassing if they were to go to trial.
In order for this to be effective, the client must find out if they are under investigation for a crime before they are arrested. This is particularly useful for fraud investigations. If a person is under investigation for fraud, the second the charges are filed, all documents will be seized. If an individual finds out about the investigation and retains the services of an experienced criminal defense lawyer, a plea can be worked out or the charges dropped even before they are filed. Sometimes, there is simply a misunderstanding that raises alarms but is really nothing.
