Pre-Charge Investigations in Phoenix

Some people who are under investigation wait passively, thinking the whole matter might go away. Even worse, they may talk with the police without the advice of an attorney — thinking that they can somehow deflect the investigation or convince the police that they are innocent.

If you are under investigation, talking with the police without the advice of an attorney is very foolish. They want to talk with you for one reason — they are looking for evidence they can use against you.

Call Cates & Sargeant Law Group, PLLC at 602-296-3434 as soon as possible. We can take immediate steps to protect your rights and strengthen your defense.

Cates & Sargeant Law Group, PLLC has successfully represented numerous clients accused of sex crimes. Often the groundwork for these successes was laid during a pre-charge investigation and before an arrest was made.

Legal representation during an investigation can turn a nightmare into a potentially good outcome. If you believe the police are investigating you, call us at 602-296-3434.

Our firm can do many things during an investigation and before you are charged:

  • We can advise you how to respond to police inquiries.
  • In some cases, we may be able to head off a charge or convince the prosecutor to file a lesser charge against you.
  • We can begin your defense effort by reviewing evidence and conducting our own investigation.
  • If we know a charge is coming, we can arrange the terms of your arrest, its place and its time. We may also be able to take measures to enable your release on bail.

Important — Do not talk to police without talking to a lawyer first. If a law enforcement officer knocks on your door, tell them that you will talk to them, but you need to talk to your lawyer first. Then call one of our sex crimes attorneys right away. Legal representation during an investigation will not increase your legal costs. It may in fact enable you to avoid the expense of an arrest and trial.

Your freedom and your future are at stake. Get legal representation now.
