What To Do If You’ve Been Arrested
The most important thing you can do following an arrest is to contact a lawyer. Throughout my years in practice at my firm, at T. Charles Shafer, Attorney at Law, I have always been dedicated to advocating for those facing criminal charges, never working for the prosecution, and I believe in the simple policy of working hard for each and every client I serve, and I am personally driven to achieve results.
Being arrested can be confusing and frightening, and it is likely that you are uncertain what to do. Only an attorney familiar with the details of your case can give you accurate and specific counsel, but until you have the opportunity to contact your lawyer, it is generally advisable to not answer the questions posed by law enforcement officers.
Anything you say can be used against you as evidence, even something that doesn’t seem immediately to indicate guilt. It is unfair to enter into such a conversation without someone equally well-versed in legal proceedings at your side to protect your best interests.
Experienced Defense Attorney Serving The Vero Beach Area
Having worked tirelessly for more than 29 years to defend my clients, I am very familiar with the unique challenges that every defendant in a criminal trial faces. Charges of sex crimes or domestic violence, no matter how unfounded, can result in an undeserved social stigma from one’s peers long after the trial is over, and my sensitivity to these issues has put many a client at ease over the years.
No matter what kind of charges you currently face, you can rest assured that I have the necessary experience to handle your case with the diligence and care it deserves. Don’t trust just anyone to protect your freedom and reputation – get in touch with T. Charles Shafer, Attorney at Law today.
