Criminal Defense Cases We Handle

Criminal in jailHere is a list of some common types of criminal defense cases that I can defend:

What Happens When You Get Arrested?

  • You will be taken into custody – Immediately after you are arrested, you will be taken into custody, which usually means you will be taken to the local jail to be held until you are bailed out or until your arraignment hearing.
  • You will be booked – Next, you will be taken through the booking process. You will be asked questions regarding your name, address, identification information, workplace, emergency contacts, and medical conditions that require treatment. Your mugshot and fingerprints will be taken and you will be searched for weapons or contraband.
  • You will be interrogated – After you've been taken into custody, you will be read your rights (i.e. your Miranda Rights) and asked about your charges and what happened leading up to your arrest. Remember: you have the right to remain silent and the right to a lawyer!
  • You will be held – Once you are booked and the interrogation is complete, you will be held at the jail until your arraignment.
  • You will be arraigned– At your arraignment hearing, a judge will read the charges that have been made against you and set your bail amount. If you do not have a private lawyer, they will ask if you want a court-appointed lawyer to represent you.
  • You will post bail (or not) – If the judge sets a bail amount, you will have to pay the bail amount in order to get out of jail, or ensure a bail bond. Otherwise, you must remain in jail until your trial.
  • You will be tried – The official court hearing to determine whether you are innocent or guilty of the charges against you.
