Have You Been Arrested for a Crime?

The necessity of getting immediate representation cannot be underestimated. In fact, there are actions that could be taken prior to formal charges that can impact the outcome of the case. Some individuals have been arrested and charged with a serious crime, but during the arrest, or in the gathering of evidence, procedural errors or violations of rights took place. Violations of rights should be investigated at once, as there could be opportunities to get the charges dismissed when the criminal defense lawyer from the firm has the opportunity to act quickly. In federal or felony charges this can be a vital action.
