If you have been arrested or charged with a crime, you are most likely feeling scared and confused. These feeling are normal—after all, being arrested or charged with a crime may very well be the most stressful, overwhelming, and frightening thing you will ever had to deal with. Much of your anxiety probably stems from not knowing what to do after you have been arrested and feeling helpless. Given that your rights, freedom, finances, job, and reputation in your community are all potentially on the line, the stakes are too high to try to defend yourself.
The first step you should take after being arrested is hiring an experienced and knowledgeable criminal defense attorney.

If you have been charged with a crime or think you will charged with a crime, it is imperative that you know your rights. The two most important rights you should be aware of and remember are the right to have a lawyer present at all stages of the criminal process and the right to remain silent. These two critical rights apply not only when you have been charged with a crime but also when you are suspected of having committed a crime. Also, be aware that anything you say can be used against you. As such, do not discuss you case with anyone but your lawyer. While it may be tempting to discuss what is happening with your friends, family, significant other, cellmates, and other people that are close to you, it is imperative that you do not reveal any information regarding your case to anyone but your lawyer. Likewise, do not contact any law enforcement agency, District Attorney, or City Attorney without first consulting your lawyer.
