    Our Early Involvement Can Make a Big Difference

    There is a window of opportunity between an arrest and the filing of formal charges. In most criminal cases the best opportunity to have charges dropped or reduced is after the arrest and prior to the state attorney filing formal charges in Clearwater. 

    The Law Office of Timothy Hessinger consistently attacks criminal cases before the state attorney files formal charges. Our pre-filing attack gives our clients the opportunity to impact the state attorney's filing decision and, in some cases, avoid a life-long criminal record. We explore all your options for a successful solution to your case, with an emphasis on alternatives to prison and a criminal record.
