Having spoken with several attorneys, all suggest I wait on DA action before I retain their counsel. This recommendation is based on the perception that charges may not be filed. However, a few attorneys have given me the option to retain them prior to charges being filed (pre-file). These attorneys offered me this option for peace of mind, but not as a means for pre-file case resolution or dismissal. What are the benefits of retaining counsel pre-file? The funds for this service would be applied toward a proper retainer if necessary. Thank you.
