Pre-Indictment (PIP) Court

If you have been charged with a felony offense in the Superior Court, the Prosecutor will most likely present your matter to the Grand Jury. The Grand Jury is a very one-sided proceeding because neither the defendant nor defense counsel are present (however, there are some exceptions where a defendant is invited to testify by the Prosecutor). Once your case is indicted, you will then be given an arraignment date before a Superior Court Judge.

Pre-Indictment Court (PIP) is a court designed to resolve cases in the preliminary stage, before the matter has been presented to the Grand Jury. Depending on the facts of the case and the offer provided by the State, it could be beneficial to resolve your matter in this court. Ms. Breslow is very familiar both the PIP court procedure as well as how to best advice you as to whether you should take an early plea deal. Ms. Breslow has handled numerous cases in PIP court and she will be able to counsel you on how to proceed in PIP. In addition, if appropriate for your case, she will be proactive at getting your matter listed for PIP court.
