The moment you feel the cold metal of handcuffs fastening around your wrists, your freedom is threatened. You are being accused of a crime that you may or may not be guilty of, and until you are found innocent you may be treated as if you are guilty. This, in and of itself, is an injustice in the United States, but you can fight it by hiring an experienced criminal defense attorney to ensure your rights are protected.

What to Do if You Have Been Arrested

If you have been arrested, there are certain things you should do in order to maintain your individual rights and protect your freedom, such as:

  1. Remain calm

  2. Do not resist arrest

  3. Be cooperative and polite with police, but make no statements and answer no questions

  4. Exercise your right to an attorney immediately

  5. Decline to say anything to the police until you have a lawyer present.

From the time you are arrested anything you say can be used against you and may be used taken out of context. This is why we stress that you do not speak with anyone until your attorney arrives.

With extensive experience representing criminal cases, we know how to help you protect your rights during police interrogation and advise you on what to do next to preserve your freedom.
