Finding a criminal defense attorney immediately after an arrest can be extremely beneficial to your case. Getting a lawyer immediately following an arrest may not possible, therefore contacting an attorney at the earliest available opportunity is imperative to a solid and sound defense.
Shortly after your release, you will receive a court date. This court date, also known as the arraignment date, is where you’ll get an opportunity to listen to all the charges against you. You will also get the opportunity to enter a guilty or not guilty plea. It’s important your criminal attorney has an opportunity to review the case and help you make the best decisions well before the arraignment date arrives.
