  • Frequently Asked Questions

  • I’ve been arrested. What are my rights?

    I’ve been arrested. What are my rights?

    Upon an arrest, a police officer will read your Miranda warning (commonly known as Miranda rights). Your Miranda rights include the right to remain silent to avoid self-incrimination and your right to legal counsel. If you have been arrested or investigated without being offered your Miranda rights, your statements may be deemed inadmissible in a court or criminal trial.

  • What happens after an arrest?

    What happens after an arrest?

    Though specific events can differ on a case-by-case basis, there are certain things that you can expect immediately following an arrest. If you are arrested, an officer may handcuff you and take you to Central Booking where you will go through initial processing. After, you will be processed for arraignment (essentially your first appearance before a judge).

  • What happens at an arraignment?

    What happens at an arraignment?

    The arraignment hearing is where you will be read your official charges, if a plea offer has been made by the District Attorney or judge, and in some instances, a bail amount will be made. You will have the opportunity to plead “guilty” or “not guilty” at this time. If you prefer, you can accept a plea deal made by the prosecution.

  • Do I need an attorney to represent me?

    Do I need an attorney to represent me?

    Even if you think that the case against you is too incriminating, do not make the mistake of thinking that you do not have options available to you. Working with a criminal defense attorney who has trial experience and criminal law knowledge can only improve your chances of securing a reduction in charges, or in some cases, acquittal or complete dismissal.
