Being accused of a crime can be devastating. The arrest itself can cause harm to a person's educational opportunities and career, even if the criminal charges are ultimately dropped.
From the moment you are accused of a crime, every action you take has serious consequences. It is important to understand your rights after the investigation begins including the right to remain silent and the right to have an attorney help you at every stage of the case. An experienced criminal defense attorney can help you navigate the complex criminal justice system.
