If you’ve been charged with a crime, you need to hire an experienced criminal defense attorney as soon as possible, even before the arraignment.
This ensures that your rights are not lost and good evidence isn’t lost.
Furthermore, evidence could be lost if you don’t hire a lawyer as soon as possible. Security camera videos are typically lost within a few days. If you do not act as quickly as possible to preserve these videos, they are lost forever. This means you could be without evidence that shows your innocence.
Without an attorney your defense can be impaired, your rights can be waived, and you could remain in jail unnecessarily. This is why you should hire a criminal defense attorney as soon as possible if you’re arrested.
If you’ve been arrested, call me as soon as possible to set up an appointment. I do appointments over the weekend if necessary. If you need a criminal defense lawyer who will fight for you, call me now and set up a consultation at 617-356-8217.
