WHAT TO DO AFTER BEING ARRESTED
When arrested, the first steps you take can decide your future. The first action you should take after an arrest, whether facing misdemeanor or felony charges, is to contact me, an experienced criminal defense attorney with more than two decades of experience.
Once you call, I will listen to your case and begin applying my experience to develop a comprehensive defense for your charges. Every person facing criminal charges has a right to have their side of the story heard in court. It’s my passion to represent clients, and I am proud to help every person as if they are a member of my family.
I tirelessly work on cases, find solutions to the problems that clients face, and am never intimidated by challenging cases.
After a person is arrested and charged, they will either be kept in custody or released on bail after booking. Being charged is very serious, so you should act with urgency. The most important thing to do after you have been arrested is to remember that you are not required to speak with the police until you’ve obtained legal representation, per your Constitutional rights. You should wait until I arrive before speaking; I will make sure the police don’t violate your rights and will advise you as they question you.
What Penalties Do Criminal Defendants Face?
The reason that I take an aggressive approach to every case is because I know the harsh penalties my clients are facing. While the penalties for every crime varies, every person deserves to have their rights protected. The consequences of a criminal conviction could mean anything from thousands of dollars in fines to a lifetime in prison. Whether you are facing DUI charges or you have been accused of a sex crime, you deserve dedicated advocacy.
Ensuring Your Arrest Was Fair
When determining how to move forward, the first step is to evaluate every piece of evidence. In many instances, I can find flaws in the case against you during this process. When law enforcement officers are determined to arrest someone for a crime, they may take unfair procedural shortcuts. In some cases, they may fail to follow up on other strong leads that would have exonerated you.
I will tirelessly look through the events of your arrest to ensure that law enforcement respected your right through every step of the process. Through dedication to legal excellence, I can fight any heavy-handed charges that law enforcement may attempt to pin on you. I have the resources and skill to defend you, and have even worked on one of the highest-profile criminal cases.

WHAT CAN YOUR FIRM HELP ME WITH?
ISN'T A DEFENSE LAWYER EXPENSIVE?
Many defense attorneys charge huge fees for their services. Because I'm a lean firm with few costs, I can offer my services in many cases at a flat rate, avoiding the hourly charges you would face with most law offices. This assists our clients and allows them to get high-quality legal representation with straightforward costs. My affordable fees are just one part of my client approach.
Some large law firms treat you like "just another number." You may rarely meet or hear from the attorney, although you will be charged their hourly rate for every action. That is not my philosophy or my firm's way of doing business. It's my professional duty to make sure you're informed, that you know what you're paying for, and that you have direct access to me if you have a question. That's what sets my firm apart from other defense lawyers.
SHOULD I TAKE A PLEA DEAL?
Whatever you do, never take a plea deal unless you've spoken with your attorney. Here's the truth: prosecutors rely on scare tactics to force defendants into a corner. In many cases, defendants feel like their only option is to plead guilty, regardless of whether or not it's true. Because most defendants don't have the training or experience to know a weak case when they see one, it's easy for the prosecution to convince defendants that their best option is a deal. That's why having an attorney is so vital early in the process: your attorney can tell you when a plea deal is in your favor and when it's a scare tactic. Even if you end up taking a deal eventually, the deal you'll get with a lawyer in the room is far better than any deal you'd get alone.
