The Importance of Seeking Legal Representation Immediately After An Arrest
You may feel overwhelmed after being arrested, with thousands of thoughts and questions racing through your mind. This is completely normal, but it’s important to take a few deep breaths so you can think clearly and contact an attorney. A criminal defense attorney will protect your rights and ensure you are treated fairly by the criminal court system. The sooner you hire an attorney, the sooner you will have this protection.
An attorney will immediately step in and make sure you do not make any crucial mistakes when dealing with law enforcement that could affect the outcome of your case. For example, if you fail to exercise your right to remain silent, you could end up divulging too much information to the police. The information you provide to these officers could then be used against you in court to prove your guilt.
Hiring a criminal defense attorney right away also ensures you will have representation at your arraignment. This is an important hearing in a criminal case, so it’s best to have an attorney with you to explain your charges and speak on your behalf.
Seeking legal representation as soon as possible will also give your attorney more time to review the details of your case and prepare a defense strategy. The more time that your attorney has to devote to your case, the better the outcome could be. For these reasons, it is in your best interests to get in touch with a criminal defense attorney as soon as possible following your arrest.
