Assault, drunk driving arrests and drug possession charges can leave you wondering where to turn. You need to make sure your driving record stays clean, that you won’t be spending the rest of your life with a criminal record because you were in the wrong place at the wrong time. You need a skilled criminal defense attorney to make sure your rights aren’t violated and to develop a strong defense.
The first step in fighting back charges is establishing the reasons for the charge. Your criminal defense attorney should have a relationship with prosecutors, so they can find out immediately what charges you’re facing. If you’re working with an attorney immediately after your arrest, it’s sometimes possible to get charges reduced, or to have the charges dropped.
If you’re stopped by law enforcement for any reason, don’t offer any information beyond your name without speaking with an attorney. We’ve helped clients who thought they were doing themselves a favor by cooperating by answering questions. This is typically a poor strategy since law enforcement officers will likely ask you questions which could ultimately result in your incriminating yourself.
