PHILIPPINE CRIMINAL LAWYERS

When you are sued for a criminal case in the Philippines, you will normally undergo preliminary investigation before the Office of the City Prosecutor. Preliminary investigation is an inquiry or proceeding to determine whether there is sufficient ground to engender a well-founded belief that a crime has been committed and the respondent is probably guilty thereof, and should be held for trial. This is a crucial stage in criminal proceedings because the prosecutor will have to determine whether there is sufficient ground to file an information in court against you. If there are no sufficient grounds, then the prosecutor will dismiss the case. As such, the criminal complaint will not be filed in Philippine courts.

When confronted with this situation, you will need to seek expert legal advice and engage the services of Philippine criminal defense lawyers or attorneys to ensure that your side is properly presented. A good criminal defense lawyer will endeavor to disprove the elements of the crime or felony based on factual circumstances and documentary evidence.

In the same vein, if you are a victim of a crime and wish to file a criminal case in the Philippines, it is important to engage the services of Philippine criminal prosecution lawyers or attorneys to ensure that your criminal complaint is strong and can prove the elements of the crime.

It bears great emphasis that a good Philippine criminal defense or prosecution lawyer, attorney or law firm can ensure that all your constitutional and legal rights are protected.
