After an arrest, citation, or the filing of a criminal complaint, you may feel lost, scared, or that your life is over. The final disposition of your case—even the arrest itself—could have a devastating impact on your reputation, education, employment, or freedom.
Do not panic. First and foremost, it is important to remember that you are not alone. However, waiting to speak with an attorney or speaking with a law firm more interested in making a sale rather than thoroughly consulting with you could easily leave you feeling hopeless. Therefore, after an arrest or citation, it should be your first priority to speak with an experienced criminal defense attorney and ask questions about how to navigate the issues most important to you. When selecting an attorney, you deserve someone that will provide absolute honesty from consultation to trial and promptly answer all questions throughout representation and even after your case concludes.
