Early Intervention is the Key

Pre—trial Intervention/Diversion This is a program run by the local state Attorney’s office. PAK & UAE Lawyers are extremely effective in getting their clients enrolled in the pre—trial intervention or pre—trial diversion program. The programs vary from country to country. They are only available to first time offenders. Keep in mind; the programs are usually only offered in misdemeanor and in simple non—violent felony cases. A person offered pre—trial intervention / diversion merely have to enroll in the program and complete certain conditions (i.e., community service hours, drug testing, an anger management class or a values class) depending on the offense. When you complete the program successfully, the State dismiss all the charges against you. PAK & UAE Lawyers can then expunge your record, so no one will ever know you were arrested.

Plea Bargaining

Your clean record will serve you well when a PAK & UAE Lawyers Defense Attorney negotiates on your behalf. It is imperative to receive withhold of adjudication for two reasons. The first prevents you from being a convicted felon and losing the majority of your civil liberties, such as being able to own a firearm. A withhold also entitles you to seal your record after your case is closed. This prevents employers and friends from discovering your situation. At the onset of the case, our lawyers engage in the discovery process by reviewing documents, performing background checks and deposing witnesses and victims. After the Criminal Defense Attorneys at PAK & UAE Lawyers have punched so many holes in the your case, the prosecution will many times have no choice but to dismiss the charges. Generally, the worst case scenario results in a short term of probation with minimal conditions.
