After the Arrest
Your constitutional rights protect you once you are placed under arrest.
These rights are called Miranda rights, which should be read to you at the time of your arrest, and they guarantee you the right to remain silent, and the right to an attorney.
The success of your criminal law defense often rides on your observation of your Miranda rights.
Once you receive Miranda rights, anything you say to law enforcement or other officials can be used against you during your trial.
This is why it is so critical to take advantage of your right to a criminal defense lawyer.
Our criminal defense lawyers remain at your side during questioning to ensure all questions are legally permitted and to advise you on how to respond.
Do not forget that one of your rights is to have the court appoint an attorney if you cannot afford one.
