With felony charges, there is often an investigation that takes place before charges are filed. The suspect of an investigation will likely be contacted by law enforcement at some point and asked to give a statement. Sometimes a search warrant puts someone on notice that they are the subject of an investigation. If an individual is the subject of an investigation, they should seek representation immediately, even if innocent of any wrongdoing. Cooperation should be at the advice of legal counsel to ensure that statements are not misconstrued. Successful representation from an experienced lawyer during the investigation phase can keep charges from ever being filed.
