If you’ve been arrested, you want to speak with an attorney as soon as possible. When an officer starts saying anything like, “I’m placing you under arrest, you have the right to remain silent,” you need to recognize your world has changed. You are entering the criminal justice system, and it is designed to be a one-way street. From arrest to conviction, the system is built to push you forward, with no turning back.
You Want An Attorney Representing You Immediately
Criminal law, procedure and practice is complex. Most criminal defense attorneys only practice criminal law, because it is so complex that it is difficult to remain skilled if you do not do it all the time. For the accused, it is also very stressful.
No one remains cool, calm and collected as the handcuffs click into place. At the Law Office of Daymen W.X. Robinson, PC, we know even innocent individuals can be frightened and panic during an arrest. You may blurt out statements, desperately try to explain “what really happened” or become confrontational with the officer.
Ask For An Attorney And Keep Quiet
As difficult as it may be, you want to say as little as possible. During an arrest, police are noting your every action. They may have a body cam, recording the interaction. An aggressive outburst or a physical altercation may be recorded on video.
This can may make any defense, no matter how valid difficult. Judges and juries often believe an accused is guilty simply because they were arrested. You do not want to provide them with evidence a prosecutor will turn against you in a courtroom.
Let Me Repeat: Ask For An Attorney
Demand your Sixth Amendment right to an attorney as soon as police take you into custody. If you are unsure, ask this question: “Am I in custody or can I leave?” If they say, “No” and do not permit you to go free, the next words out of your mouth should be “I want an attorney.” Don’t argue, don’t explain, and don’t believe if you “talk” they will “go easy on you.” They will use everything you say against you, so don’t say anything.
When you’ve been injured in an accident or by someone’s negligence, you may find it difficult to deal with insurance companies, doctors and lawyers. We can help you sort out the details, handle the insurance companies and their attorneys and help you obtain the compensation you need. Don’t delay, there are strict time limitations on filing these claims and if you wait too long, you may lose an otherwise valid claim. We can help file your claims on time.
A divorce or other family law issue can happen to anyone. We can help you with divorce, child support, child custody and visitation, property division, paternity, and modifications and enforcement proceedings. It can be difficult to deal with your emotions and the complex legal aspects of some cases, but Daymen Robinson has the experience to help you understand your options and make decisions that can benefit your future.
