Why You Need to Hire a Lawyer Immediately After Your Arrest

Don’t Delay… If You’ve Been Accused or Arrested, Call Us Immediately

Have you recently been accused of a crime or arrested by police? Are you confused about what steps you should take next? The first thing you should do immediately after being arrested is to get in touch with an experienced criminal defense lawyer. This step is crucial if you want to protect your rights and fight the charges against you.

Some benefits of hiring a lawyer when you’re accused or right after your arrest include:

  • Preserving Evidence: A lawyer can help you preserve important information that can be used to build your defense strategy. If you wait too long to hire an attorney, you might forget important details of your arrest that could have been key evidence in your case.
  • Legal Guidance: An attorney can explain if it is better to negotiate a plea deal or to take your case all the way to trial. An attorney can also guide you through the entire legal process, so you will know what to expect each time you go to court.

Our Team Is Here to Handle Your Case

Our legal team recently went to court in the Antelope Valley on behalf of a young man who was arrested for felony robbery. Our attorneys did a prefiling, meaning we sent letters with supporting documents to the detective BEFORE the case was sent over to the DA’S office.

Based on our letters, the DA only charged our client with misdemeanor battery and trespassing and vandalism. This put our client in a much better place to start their fight in court. Now, we will take the next 3 to 4 months to try to get the remaining charges dropped.

As you can see from the example above, hiring an attorney quickly after your arrest can make a huge difference in your case. If you have been accused or arrested for a crime, you should immediately get in touch with our law firm to give yourself the best chance at getting the case dropped or reduced before you appear in court.

Even if you have only been accused of committing a crime but not yet arrested, you should still give us a call so we can get started doing a prefiling investigation in order to make sure charges are never filed. This means you would avoid the expense of posting bail and the emotional toll of dealing with court proceedings.
