What to Expect When You Contact Our Firm

If this is your first time being arrested, it’s understandable that you are just trying to gather as much information as you can about your charge and your options for defense. There’s a lot of information out there on the Internet. But there’s no substitute for talking to an experienced defense attorney. That’s why our firm offers a free case review.

  1. We will start by talking about what happened. We want to hear your side of the story. We’ll talk about what was going on immediately before your arrest, what happened during your arrest, and what has happened since.
  2. We will review any paperwork or documentation you have. This includes anything you received from law enforcement, the jail, or at a court appearance.
  3. We will explain the charges you are facing. We’ll also talk about how your local court typically handles cases like these.
  4. We will walk you through the best defense strategies based on the circumstances of your case. Police and prosecutors may act like your case is open and shut. But there will actually be many opportunities to push for your case to be dismissed or for charges to be reduced. Our experienced attorney will take advantage of every opportunity to fight for you.
