Pre-Filing to Avoid Serious Charges

There is a window of opportunity between an arrest and the filing of formal charges. In most criminal cases, the best opportunity to have charges dropped or reduced is after the arrest and prior to the state attorney filing formal charges. The charging decision is often impacted by telling the other side of the story or by providing mitigation evidence to the state attorney.

Attorney Drizis is your voice to the state attorney, before they file formal charges. His pre-filing strategy gives clients the opportunity to impact the state attorney’s filing decision and, in some cases, avoid serious charges, minimum mandatory prison sentences, and a life-long criminal record. Attorney Drizis is knowledgeable and experienced, and therefore able to explore all possible options for clients. He provides you with information of how the criminal charge will affect you now and in the future, with a focus on alternatives to prison and a criminal record.
