ARRESTED? NOW WHAT?
Criminally Charged or Arrested? You Need A Criminal Defense Attorney On Your Side.
So then it happens, the lights, the dreaded sirens. Your stomach churns and you begin to panic. You see the cop approaching. Or maybe you don’t. Maybe you have been yanked out of a car at gun point? Maybe your home has been ransacked by the police? You hear the shiny handcuffs click and feel the loss of movement in your wrists. Life as you know it is about to change. You are strip searched. Booked and questioned. You hear the metal doors slam shut behind you.
The dreaded criminal justice system is now staring you gravely in the face. Don’t sit back and trust that the flawed system will save you. Don’t get caught in the unforgiving spider web. Don’t wait until it’s too late. Contact a criminal defense attorney to learn about your legal rights before it’s too late!
What Happens Next With Your Criminal Charges?
So you, a loved one, friend or a family member have been arrested. This simply means that a Police Officer has probable cause to believe that you have committed a crime. You will be taken in front of a Magistrate Judge (commonly referred to as a “First Appearance” Judge) and if you are lucky will be released on your own recognizance (ROR), bail or Pretrial.
Those, who have been accused of more serious crimes may not be so lucky and may be held without bail. For either situation, you need an experienced criminal defense attorney who can strongly represent your case.
Sense of Urgency
After an arrest the clock is ticking. There is a common misconception that takes place in the criminal justice system: Police Officers DO NOT charge you with crimes. They arrest you. I repeat the police DO NOT charge you with crimes. The State Attorney’s Office makes the crucial decision to charge you with the crimes the Police have arrested you for. The State Attorney’s Office has the discretion to file the same charges that you were arrested for, file reduced or lesser charges, file increased or more serious charges or NOT FILE ANYTHING. It is imperative that you call a criminal attorney right away so that together, you can begin to fight the charges at the PRE- FILING stage. The fastest way to make a case go away is to prevent it from getting filed on in the first place.
Pots and Pans Method
State Attorneys assigned to make filing decisions have hundreds and sometimes thousands of files that they are responsible for. Most State Attorney’s Offices have dedicated attorneys assigned only to case filing. How does your file get the attention that it needs? You have to be proactive. You have to make some noise. You have to begin the fight immediately. Any and all contradictory evidence, mitigating factors, legal authority or additional witnesses/statements can be presented to the State Attorney prior to he/she making a filing decision on your case. If you sit back and do nothing, there is a great chance that your charges will get picked up by the State or worse: they could even increase! You need to do your homework and read reviews and hire the best defensive criminal defense attorney. Matthew Glassman is a 10.0 AVVO rated Lawyer with over 100 5-star Google reviews.

Exceptional Belle Glade Criminal Defense Attorney
Arrests happen. Believe me I know. I have seen things that will make you shake your head. I have handled cases that caused me to lose sleep at night. I defended people accused of unthinkable crimes. I have seen good police officers make bad decisions and bad police officers make even worse. I have defended college students who made questionable decisions. Medical professionals worried that they may never be able to practice again. Husbands worried that they have hugged their wives and children for the last time. Vacationers at the wrong place at the wrong time. Not every arrest is valid. In fact, many arrests are unlawful. The criminal justice system can suck you in. And once you’re in it, it is very difficult to get out of. Don’t allow yourself to be a victim of this vicious cycle. If you find yourself arrested or facing criminal charges than you need an experienced defense attorney on your side. Don’t face the criminal justice system alone. As your Broward County criminal defense attorney, I can help. I have made a career out of successfully defending and fighting for those accused of crimes. Whether you have been arrested for a small misdemeanor offense or for a homicide, I can help. Here is a sampling of some criminal defense practice areas where I can assist you.
