criminal defense

Click go the handcuffs and then a rush of thoughts inundate the brain when you realize you are officially under arrest for allegedly committing a crime. The thoughts are mostly questions, such as where am I going to jail and when I arrive, should I reveal any information to the detectives investigating the case. You also ponder what the arrest means for your job and more important, the relationships you have with friends and family members. After sifting through seemingly countless thoughts, one question suddenly takes over to become the most critical question of all.

Should you contest any of the charges filed against you?
