What Happens After An Arrest?
After you are arrested, a court arraignment will determine if you will remain in prison until trail and if you have an attorney. Then, your defense attorney will begin the discovery period, where they gather evidence and testimony that can bolster your case. Once your lawyer has prepared your defense, they will either pursue a plea deal or a trail, depending on what option protects you better.
What Happens If You Lose Your Trial?
If the results of your trial do not reflect the outcome you deserve, you may be able to pursue an appeal. We can review your case to determine if there is any eligibility for this and develop an appeal strategy.
Should You Accept A Plea Deal?
Sometimes, a person facing charges will quickly receive an offer for a plea deal, usually in exchange for a reduced sentence for pleading guilty. While this may seem like the best option you have, that is not always the case. Let a skilled criminal defense attorney review your case and your offer before making any major decisions.
