California State-Bar Certified Criminal Law Specialist

Through a process known as pre-court intervention, a criminal defense lawyer may be able to persuade prosecutors to reduce or even drop criminal charges against a client before the case proceeds to arraignment in court. All attorneys should be aware of this important process as it could cause a client’s record to remain clean and arrest-free.

Despite a felony arrest involving accusations of domestic violence, sex offenses, or white-collar crime charges, Dmitry Gorin and his team at Eisner Gorin LLP have successfully closed cases for clients with no filed criminal charges at arraignment. The client was then able to report not having an “arrest” pursuant to Penal Code Section 849.5, as this statute converts the law enforcement contact which led to the arrest as a “detention only.”

The scheduled pre-court intervention program will be presented through ZOOM on Wednesday December 9, 2020, from 12:15 pm to 1:15pm with the LA Law Library. The class will cover criminal defense strategy including:

  • When it’s appropriate to use pre-court intervention.
  • Preparation of a formal legal position to show factual weaknesses;
  • Use of private investigator to assist in finding missed evidence;
  • Negotiation with prosecutor to convince them to reduce or drop charges;
