How We Can Help
Miller & Pugh Law Offices, P.C. can help you at any stage of your case. But the sooner we start working for you, the better off you will be. Our firm can take steps to:
- Protect Your Rights — We can advise you how to respond to police inquiries in a way that does not incriminate you or do harm to your case.
- Represent You in Bail Hearings — Our firm can seek to obtain your release on your own recognizance or reduce the required bail.
- Start Building Your Defense — We can collect and preserve evidence that could be lost otherwise, interview witnesses and take additional measures to prepare your defense.
- Take Advantage of the Window of Opportunity — After an arrest, it may take the prosecutor between a few days and a couple of weeks to file charges. During that time, it may be possible for us to speak with the prosecutor in order to cast doubts upon the strength of the state's case. We may even be able to persuade the prosecutor to not file charges or to file lesser charges instead.
Miller & Pugh Law Offices, P.C. will be your strong advocate from the start to the conclusion of your case. We will be with you all the way.
If you have been contacted by the police or an investigator about your possible involvement in a crime, do not talk with them without the advice of a lawyer. Doing so may provide them with information they could use against you. If you attempt to deceive them or hide facts, you could face an obstruction of justice charge. Get legal help as soon as possible.
