What Happens Now
What To Do After You Or Your Loved One Has Been Arrested.
Once you or a family member or some other loved one has been charged with a crime, it very important that contact an experienced criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible.
Many people make the mistake of thinking that a court-appointed attorney is their only choice or their “best chance” under the circumstances.
This is far from the truth. When you have a highly skilled and aggressive criminal defense lawyer working for your side it may literally mean the difference between your freedom; a long prison sentence, reduced jail time or having the criminal charges dismissed altogether.
By contacting a skilled criminal defense attorney immediately:
- You may be able to save yourself a lot of money in the long run
When someone is arrested, they often just sit around “waiting to see what will happen”. This is a big, big mistake! The longer you wait the more your case may be weakening. If you are convicted you can lose a great deal of money in fines, penalties and restitution. Even simple “community service” sentences can cost you in time lost from your job.
- You may be able to avoid the pain and embarrassment of jury trial
Those unfamiliar with the criminal legal process often don’t understand that 19 out of 20 criminal cases that are handled by a quality attorney can result in a complete dismissal of charges or a plea bargain. The State usually prefers not to go to trial
- You may be able to save your future
If you are convicted of even a “minor” criminal charge, it can haunt you and your loved ones for the rest of your lives. It can negatively affect your career, ability to obtain loans and to own firearms.
- You may be unable to receive the Florida State or Federal benefits your family deserves
If you are convicted, certain government benefits may be restricted or severely limited.
