Questions And Answers

Your criminal defense attorney is the most important person in your case. They should be knowledgeable about the law and have experience defending charges similar to yours, they should also know all there is too Know of any court where these crimes were filed before because this could affect how best defend you right away!

A person who has been arrested should expect to come into contact with law enforcement at some point. This could be in the form of being “booked” by police before their arrest and can involve personal information, historical data as well as biographical statements which will help determine if an individual is wanted for any outstanding warrants or criminal history charges requiring bail/bond payments from friends/family members etc..

If you are facing charges, it is important that a qualified criminal lawyer review the situation with you so your defense strategy can be established.

Whether or not you should speak to the police is a decision that needs careful consideration as soon it can be made. The US Constitution does not require an individual who has been arrested, with one exception: providing basic information about oneself when asked by officers in accordance with Federal laws- but even then there are many circumstances under which talking might prove beneficial (such at videoing your interactions).

An arraignment is the initial proceeding before a judge in which charges are announced and entered for defendants. The process often includes entering pleas to these crimes, but there’s no guarantee that it will happen at this time because some people need more evidence than what was presented during their arrest or investigation stage of proceedings (for instance: whether they have been charged with felonies).

Yes, if you appear before the judge and acknowledge to having committed a crime then your warrant will be removed. This is because it’s generally understood that once there’s “probable cause” for an individual who has been formally accused of committing said act(s), their appearance before courthouses becomes irrelevant unless they want back up proof just incase!

The criminal process can have an impact on non-citizens, depending upon their immigration status and the nature of charges brought against them. For example those who are in this country without proper documentation may be afraid that they will lose benefits under federal law if convicted – which could make things even worse for people with no legal standing here at all!

Yes, the Federal and State constitutions provide a criminal defendant with the right of representation by counsel, which has been interpreted by the courts to allow an individual the ability to hire any attorney they choose. This right does not exist in the same way, when an individual is not hiring an attorney, but using a court appointed lawyer. If you are not happy with the attorney you have hired, you should seek a new attorney as early as possible in the process of legal representation, because one of the few bases a court can deny a request to change attorneys is if there is insufficient time for the new lawyer to be prepared for trial.

With a team of experts to guide you in every step, we will be there for your defense from start to finish. Mitch Polay has more than 30 years of experience defending clients in all types of criminal matters.
