Criminal Defense FAQ

What should I do if I have been arrested?

If you have been arrested, it is essential that you remain silent until a lawyer is present, as anything said will be used by the police to prosecute you. You do not have to answer any of their questions, and the police are obligated to refrain from asking you facts about the case until your legal counsel arrives once you ask for an attorney.

What is the difference between a Felony and a Misdemeanor?

A felony is a charge that is punishable by one or more years in jail, often in a prison. A misdemeanor is a lesser offense, punishable by up to one year in a county jail, and up to a $1000 fine.
