Preserving Constitutional and Pre-trial Rights
If you have been charged with a crime in state or federal court, it is vital that you contact a highly competent defense lawyer as soon as possible. Certain vital constitutional rights and pre-trial rights need to be preserved in the first 24 hours after arrest. Many cases are made or broken because of the quick response of the defense lawyer. Therefore, the sooner you are represented by counsel, the better your chances of successfully resolving criminal charges will be.
