Contrary to what most people believe, the District Attorney's Office does not represent you if you are the victim of a crime. They represent the State and its interests will come first before the concerns of the victim. The District Attorney's Office has no legal obligation to consult with victims or seek restitution on their behalf when deciding whether to pursue charges, offer a plea deal, or dismiss a case. Parton & Associates' Attorneys' familiarity with the criminal justice system allows them to advise crime victims of what they can expect during what is often a very confusing process at a tumultuous time. Parton & Associates helps victims by advocating for protective pretrial release restrictions, facilitating interviews with the police and district attorneys, and strategically advising them of their options for seeking restitution.
