Five Steps to take when charged with a crime

#1 Do not talk  about your case with anyone Police and other authorities are trained to coax information and details from you about your case. You have a right granted by the U.S. Constitution to  remain silent. Friends and family don't have the legal training to give advice.

Hire a qualified attorney to represent you

#2 Being charged with a criminal offense is a serious circumstance. Find a lawyer who is qualified and experienced in dealing with matters that you are charged with. (See our practice areas)

Remain Calm

#3 We understand that you and your family family are under a  considerable amount of stress. Don't panic. If you have legal questions only receive advice from your attorney. Your case will be fully reviewed and analyzed by your lawyer.

Activate your support network

#4 Dealing with legal issues can require time away from your family, job or business. Have a support network that can help with non legal personal issues. Children need to be cared for and bills will need to be paid.

Think Long Term

#5 While the legal system is often not speedy, it has many provisions to protect your rights.  It's important that you to let your attorney address your cases issues in a detailed and deliberate manner. It's in your best interests to remain patient.
