What should you do if you are charged with a crime?

If you have been charged or arrested for a crime, you should consult a Criminal Defense Attorney as soon as possible. To ensure that a defendant’s rights remain protected, it is important to seek legal assistance. An individual may be charged with a crime prior to being arrested. A judge may issue a warrant for an arrest warrant if this occurs. If you are found by the police, you will be arrested. You will be given a copy the warrant by the police that details the charges against you.

No matter the reason you were arrested, you should know that your following constitutional rights are protected:

  • Right to remain silent
  • Having a lawyer represent you

Before making any statements to police officers, make sure that you or a loved one contact a criminal defense lawyer. We will ensure that your rights are protected. Your criminal defense lawyer should be told if you have been denied any of these rights. Be aware that statements made to law enforcement may be misinterpreted. They will most likely be used against you. Using your attorney is the best way to tell your side of the story.

What can a criminal defense attorney do for me?

Experience is just as important as having the right skills. Your attorney also needs:

  • A good understanding of the criminal law system

Do I need a criminal defense lawyer?

An attorney is recommended if you are facing criminal charges. Having a good attorney can help you reduce your chances of being charged with a crime, or get you a lower penalty or dismissal. An attorney costs far less than a criminal record.

What is the best time to hire a criminal defense lawyer?

Having an attorney from the time you are arrested is best if you have been arrested. Although this is not always possible, it is a good idea to contact an attorney as soon after you are able to reach one. This is especially important if you have a serious criminal case. However, in most cases you may be released on bail and given a date for your arraignment. An arraignment allows you to hear the charges against you and have the opportunity to plead not guilty or guilty. The prosecutor may allow you to meet with him. If so, having an attorney with you would be a good idea.

Is it better for a local lawyer to represent you?

There are many benefits to trusting your case to a local lawyer. Local attorneys will have more experience in dealing with local courts than visiting lawyers, which will allow them to better understand the rules of the court.

Is it possible for a lawyer to appear in my place at court?
