What Should I Do If I Am Facing Criminal Charges?

Whether you have been arrested for DUI or a traffic offense, every criminal charge should be taken seriously. Making mistakes can be avoided during the process if you know what to do. Any mistake can be detrimental to your case.

Here are some tips if you are charged with a criminal offense:

  • Hire an attorney An attorney is key to ensuring your rights are protected. Cops may have violated your constitutional rights or procedures during your arrest. Key evidence that has the potential to reduce your sentence or prove your innocence may go overlooked. Our team can review every aspect of your case to identify areas of opportunity that will build your defense.
  • Remain silent Do not offer up information to investigators or answer their questions. Invoking your right to remain silent is your best bet to avoid self-incrimination. You should refrain from posting about the incident on social media as your posts may be entered into evidence in court. You are still cooperating with a police investigation if you are remaining silent.
  • Do not enter a plea Until you have consulted with an attorney, do not enter a plea. Some defendants automatically plead guilty depending on what their public defender and prosecutors have told them. However, this can be a grave mistake. Consult with one of our lawyers if you are facing criminal charges to learn about various plea deals.
