5 Things to Do After an Arrest
Getting Time on Your Side in a Criminal Case
When you have been arrested, I understand how stressful, overwhelming,
and confusing the situation may be for you and your loved ones. My role
as an experienced and competent
Kennewick criminal defense lawyer is to defend my clients from the moment they have been arrested until
their case is wrapped up successfully.
There are five things you can do after you have been arrested to help your
defense right away:
Get a lawyer. Ask for an attorney right away in order to get help on your side as soon
Stay silent. Do not talk to the police or answer any questions except to say that you
would like to speak with an attorney first. Explaining your situation
to the police may work against you. Until you have a lawyer, don't
respond in order to protect yourself.
Look for evidence. Identify witnesses or other evidence to discuss with your criminal defense
attorney in order to begin building your case right away. This information
will be invaluable as your attorney will gathers evidence to bolster your case.
Cooperate with your lawyer. Everything you tell me as your criminal defense attorney is kept strictly
confidential and will never be used against you, so it is vital that you
communicate thoroughly and truthfully so we can develop the best plan
Post bail. If applicable, post bail through a bond company.
