Early Representation

Aggressive Pre-Filing Representation in Seminole and Orange County Florida

There is a window of opportunity between an arrest and the filing of formal charges to avoid criminal prosecution as the State does not initiate formal prosecution against all persons arrested for a criminal offense. The State selects which cases to prosecute. The time period before your first court date is called intake or the intake process.

The Intake Process Explained

In most criminal cases this intake time period is the best opportunity to have charges dropped or reduced by the State Attorney’s Office. Each criminal case is assigned to an intake prosecutor who reviews the facts of your case, talks to witnesses and starts building a case against the accused. The intake prosecutor has the authority to file charges, drop charges or add charges. The intake attorney’s charging decision can be influenced by providing the prosecutor important factors often overlooked by the arresting officer and not documented in your police report
