Facing Charges in Melbourne?

Proven Trial Lawyers in Melbourne, FL - Call (321) 360-4446

Criminal getting arrestedBeing charged with a criminal offense does not mean your case is over. You are still innocent until proven guilty, and no matter how bad the situation may seem at the time of your arrest, the circumstances are almost never as damning as you may be led to believe.

The law has many protections for people charged with a crime, including the right to remain silent and the right to an attorney. As tempting as it may be to try and explain the situation at the time of your arrest or at your first court hearing, it is in your best interests to remain silent until you can consult with an attorney. Anything you say after your arrest can be used against you in court, and it is surprisingly easy to say something incriminating even if you are innocent.

Don't talk to anyone before you've spoken to a defense lawyer. Call (321) 360-4446 today!
