Your actions prior to arrest might impact your defense options

Many people don’t realize that their defense options are impacted by every aspect of their case. Even before they are formally charged, people need to be aware of their rights and how their actions might affect what happens in the future. We know that this isn’t always an easy realization but thinking carefully about what you are doing can be beneficial.

One of the most important things to remember is that you can refuse to speak to police. Invoking the right can’t be construed as an admittance of guilt. It is often best to speak to your attorney and find out what your options are. Getting some advice might help you better understand how making a statement or signing something might alter the course of the case.

There is a chance that you will be arrested on a criminal charge if there is probable cause to think that you did commit the crime. If you know that an arrest is imminent, speak to your attorney about what you need to do. There is a chance that you will be given the option to voluntarily surrender, which might benefit you since they won’t arrest you at your home or office.

Once you are arrested and formally charged, you need to work diligently on your defense. We can help you review possible defense strategies and other options that might be possible in your case. This gives you the chance to determine what you feel needs to be done regarding the case. We are here to help you every step of the way.
