Criminal Law

Criminal Law covers felony offenses, misdemeanor offenses, appellate work, and DUI defense.

The stress of arrest and being hauled off to jail.

Don’t be so afraid of jail that you speak away your right to counsel and/or your right to remain silent by trying to avoid jail. Typically, when you are stopped and/or detained and the officer intends to make an arrest, you will not be able to talk yourself out of the arrest. But more often, you will talk yourself into a confession or admission that will undoubtedly be used against you at a later phase of your case. You have the right to remain silent. Always be respectful of the officer but exercise your right to be silent. You might get arrested. Make bond later. But at least you have preserved your right to silence and/or counsel and have not made a case against yourself.
