What to Do When You’re Under Arrest

If the police detain you or place you under arrest, you should exercise your Constitutional right to remain silent until you have the chance to speak with an attorney. Even if you don’t have anything to hide, it is still a good idea to not say anything to the police until your lawyer is present. The reason for this is because what you say can actually incriminate you.

We’ve witnessed too many situations where an individual decides to talk to the police on their own, only to have their words twisted and used against them in court. Remember, no matter how nice the police seem, they aren’t paid to have your best interests in mind. Their job is to get to the bottom of a crime. And unfortunately, many officers use deceptive tactics to get you to confess to committing a crime. Let our skilled criminal defense attorney do the talking for you.

Do All Criminal Cases Go to Trial?

Many people are surprised to learn that most criminal cases do not make it to the trial phase. Several cases reach an early conclusion through a plea bargain. Even better, some charges are dismissed because the prosecution realizes they do not have enough evidence to convict the individual.

Knowing how to proceed with your case can be extremely challenging. However, with our experienced legal team on your side, we can help you make an informed decision. We are skilled at negotiating with prosecution attorneys to get them to drop our client’s charges. In some scenarios, we may recommend that you accept a plea bargain. Other situations will necessitate fighting your charges in court.
