Ohio Defense in the Pre-Arrest Investigation Process

With our legal representation retained before you are ever placed in handcuffs, you can start working on your defense before ever going to court. Before filing most criminal charges, the office of a district attorney, or a United States Attorney, must compile an investigative packet that outlines clearly why the charges are justified. “Compelling evidence” is needed, or else the case against you could fall apart.

The goal of our Cleveland criminal defense attorneys is dismantling the opposition’s case before it even has a charge to be formally brought against you. During pre-arrest investigations, we may be able to challenge the supposed evidence and get the case dropped, meaning there would not even be a mark on your arrest record.

Allow us to be your legal guides or advocates for:

  • Pre-arrest interviews
  • Responding to official written inquiries
  • Interactions with law enforcement

Remember: you have the right to remain silent, but this does not mean it is always the best option. We can thoroughly analyze the situation do advise you whether you should cooperate with investigators, or remain respectfully and legally quiet about what is going on.

Why people choose to work with Patituce & Associates:

  • 70+ years of total legal experience
  • Multiple professional awards, including Super Lawyers®
