Under Investigation: The Importance of Hiring an Attorney BEFORE Charges Are Filed

Finding out that you are being investigated for a crime, regardless of if you actually committed the crime or not, can be a terrifying experience. One minute you’re sitting with your family in your living room, and the next, the police are at your door with a search warrant ready to make an arrest. Or maybe you’re sifting through your mail, and you come across a “target letter” that could change your life forever.

If you find yourself in a similar situation, it’s likely because law enforcement has been building a case against you (without you ever knowing) and now has enough evidence to convict you of a serious crime.

Unfortunately, too many individuals wait until after charges are brought to seek the assistance of an experienced Texas criminal defense attorney. With how the justice system currently stands due to COVID-19 closures, it is crucial to understand that many investigations have been put on hold and that authorities will likely take their time to press charges formally.

This does not mean that you are off the hook, and we strongly advise that you do not wait until you are arrested or have had charges filed against you to pursue legal assistance.
