Pre-Charge / Pre-Indictment Lawyers

Sometimes people are arrested and charged with a criminal offense then criminal charges are suddenly dismissed or “scratched” without explanation. Do not be fooled or caught off guard by this seemingly positive turn of events. In many cases, these charges are re-instituted and bench warrants for arrest are routinely issued when the person charged is not immediately available. Although there are times when a prosecutor intentionally decides not to file criminal charges, many times when criminal charges suddenly disappear there is more going on than is immediately apparent. In state prosecutions, most felony crimes have a seven-year statute of limitation. This means a prosecutor has up to seven years to file criminal charges for most felony crimes.

Felony Statute of Limitations

Some felony crimes have no statute of limitation at all. Oftentimes, the sudden disappearance of criminal charges is due to a police officer failing to timely complete a report to submit to the prosecutor for review. Sometimes the officer’s report is submitted for review, but the prosecutor has not had an opportunity to review the report to determine what criminal charges to file. Other times, a prosecutor may have reviewed the report but decided additional investigation or scientific testing is needed before proceeding. Finally, the case may be in the process of being submitted to a grand jury for its consideration and determination of criminal charges.

5 stars just isnt enough for Andrew Marcantel, Marc Victor, and the entire staff here.When my... boyfriend was wrongly accused of a totally vile crime, neither of us had any experience navigating the "just-us" system.If you've faced potentially life-altering accusations, and you feel like the system is set up to empower police, prosecutors, judges, and pretty much everyone except you, then you're right! If you want to level the playing feild, Attorneys for Freedom will accomplish that.Some others have commented about the price. Good representation does cost money, unfortunately. What is a persons future worth?Compared to the competition, which is also expensive, the value you will get at this law firm is just unbelievable. Andrew especially is so great at walking you through possible scenerios, guiding you through important decisions, and has the experience to truly get good results. Extremely knowledgeable and creative not just "aggressive". He is also an excellent communicator, both in the office and in the court.Speaking of communication, the paralegal team at even some more expensive law firms will leave you wondering what it is they are paid to do. This is not the case at Attorneys for Freedom. Ashley Crispino and Kaylie Kline did an amazing job at both keeping us in the loop and being available when needed.Reading "Case Dismissed" after what felt like an eternity of fighting was the best outcome we could have ever asked for.I told my Aunt who was very worried about us at the height of all the absurdity that I felt like having Andy on our side was better than prayer. And I was right.read more

This is my first time ever needing an attorney and my attorney was Kate and she did an amazing job... with my case! Kate took time to go through all of the evidence so she understood everything before going to court. Kate assistant Madalyn was also super helpful and very sweet! Anytime I called she was very understanding and helped me walk through the process when I did not understand something and always had an upbeat positive attitude! If I ever need an attorney again I will definitely being going back to Kate!read more
