If you contact The Perecman Firm to handle your wrongful prosecution case, be encouraged that we won’t charge you a fee unless we win your case. Handling civil rights cases on a contingency fee alleviates the financial burden that a wrongful arrest or prosecution can have on an individual and his or her family.
If you believe that you were wrongfully accused and prosecution was initiated against you, we strongly encourage you not to accept a plea deal. Agreeing to plead guilty may mean that you do not have grounds to file a wrongful prosecution case.
