The best time to hire a lawyer is before the first court date. Why? Because often a private attorney can work with the District Attorney’s Office to avoid the filing of formal charges. If dismissal or diversion cannot be arranged, The Law Office of Peter Depew will fight the case at every juncture. An aggressive private attorney who prioritizes client input can make a world of difference.
