Prefile Intervention

Prefile Intervention: Criminal Defense Attorney in Ventura

Defense Action Prior to Formal Charges

One of the most effective defense activities is to get involved with the case prior to formal charges being filed. In many criminal cases, there are opportunities to reduce the damage to a client through a prefile intervention. Our accomplished legal team at Lessem, Newstat & Tooson, LLP will comb through the evidence surrounding the case to identify the potential for getting the charges reduced or dismissed prior to charges being filed. This is a critical aspect of a professional defense, and we are heavily engaged in pursuing these options when it will benefit our client. Our firm has had hundreds of cases dismissed over our years in practice, and we urge you to contact us immediately, prior to formal charges being filed whenever possible.

A lawyer from our firm will engage in any possible defense action, including getting involved in a prefile intervention on your behalf. We represent individuals throughout Ventura County and surrounding Southern California communities.

We believe that the best results are achieved for our clients when the prosecutor is aware that we are more than willing to take the case to a jury for a decision. We have served at over 200 jury trials, and know exactly how to present a defense case to the jury. Our willingness to take the case to trial could make the prosecutor more willing to negotiate with us with regard to the final charge being filed; this can make the difference between a felony or misdemeanor charge, or even having the charges filed against you at all.

Our firm has garnered a reputation for exceptional trial skills, acquittals in court, and for achieving favorable outcomes for our clients by engaging in negotiations very early in the process. We urge you to contact our firm without delay if you believe that you will be facing charges, or have been arrested for a felony offense, whether a white collar crime, theft crime, sex crime, violent crime or juvenile crime. A prefile intervention could be extremely productive and reduce the potential legal threat to you and your freedom.
