I've Been Arrested

If you've been placed under arrest, it is crucial that you resist the urge to say anything or try to defend yourself. Until you have an attorney, do not speak to anyone or answer any questions. Often people incriminate themselves while trying to explain their situation to the arresting officer or the judge at their arraignment. Anything that you say can and will be used against you. Even the most seemingly innocent questions from a law enforcement officer can severely damage your defense.

Once you have been charged with a crime, your entire future is in jeopardy. Your defense should not be a DIY project. There are countless legal traps and loopholes that can result in unfair convictions and severe sentences. If you've been arrested, it is your right to have an attorney. If you cannot afford a private attorney, you have the right to a court-appointed public defender. However, even a public defender is not free. Depending on the circumstances, you may be required to pay for the defense at the conclusion of your case.

I'm Under Investigation
A strong, experienced defense attorney can have a significant impact, even before charges are filed. During a criminal investigation, law enforcement will work to gather as much evidence as possible to build their case against you.

It's vital that you hire an attorney before you speak to anyone about the charges that may be filed against you. Because you have not yet been arrested or received your Miranda Rights, you may be under the impression it is safe to be speak with law enforcement in an effort to defend yourself. Don't do it! You could end up unknowingly incriminating yourself.

Mazraani & Liguori LLP will ensure your rights are protected prior to being charged. Depending on the circumstances, we may even be able to prevent you from being charged in the first place. If you should be charged, our experienced attorneys will be armed and ready to go to battle for your defense.
