Pre-Trial Investigations – Stop Your Case Before It Begins
Pre-trial investigations occur after someone calls the police to report domestic violence, but before official charges are filed. The police are required to come to the house and investigate the allegations of domestic violence.
You are allowed to have a defense attorney represent you during this investigation. It is highly recommended that you take advantage of having legal counsel. When you work with a defense attorney, this gives you a greater chance to keep charges from being filed in the first place. Our Kitsap County domestic violence lawyers understand your rights, and can skillfully argue in your defense during a police investigation.
