What to Do After Getting Arrested

Remain silent & call a lawyer

If you’ve been arrested or even just placed under criminal investigation, there are two things you absolutely need to do to protect yourself: 1) Exercise your right to remain silent, and 2) Call a criminal defense lawyer immediately. You have these rights for a reason — they protect you from accidentally making your situation any worse. Politely refuse to answer any questions without a lawyer present, then call our law firm so we can help you navigate your case from here on out.
