Frequently Asked Questions

What happens if I am arrested and charged with a crime?

Generally, once a person is booked and charged, a criminal complaint is filed with the court and a determination made as to release pending appearance (arraignment), or to hold pending bail.

When do I need a lawyer?

Immediately upon finding that you have a problem, you should contact your attorney. Remember, anything you say to police will be held against you. You should have a defense lawyer's contact information on your phone.

I did not appear for a court date on a minor charge. Can I be arrested?

Depending upon specific circumstances, there may be a warrant for your arrest. Contact a criminal defense lawyer immediately to resolve this matter.

What does a Criminal Defense Attorney cost?

Fees are based on the amount of time and work involved in your case. You need to consult with a defense lawyer who might then be able to provide a very rough idea as to the minimum.

I know that I am guilty. Should I just take my punishment?

Even if you wish to lead guilty, you have certain rights that need to be protected throughout the process. The right decision on representation will minimize the impact on your life and the lives of your loved ones.
