When arrested it is vital to remember that anything you say at the time can be used against you later in court. Our law firm can assist you by representing your best interests, whether that means assisting you with bail or beginning to work on your case.
Hiring an attorney is critical at this stage if you do not already have one. Your lawyer needs time to prepare for your upcoming trial. Depending on the specific facts and circumstances, the case will either be a trial or possibly a plea that has been worked out with the State before the trial. We will first look to see if there are any legal and or factual defenses to the charges, and if we see them, we will take a case to trial. A trial can either be in front of a Judge or a Jury; we have handled and tried cases in front of both. The trial can take place in District Court or Circuit Court, whichever one it is, we have experience handling cases at both levels. We can represent you anywhere from a traffic matter to misdemeanors and felonies. Our knowledgeable attorneys will provide you with legal advice for your particular case, so you can be aware of all potential outcomes.
In some cases, people’s records can be expunged. When a crime is removed from the public record, it means the crime may not be visible or show up on background checks, however, most companies are doing thorough enough background checks that they may still be able to find it. If your case is eligible for expungement let one of our attorneys walk you through the process.
