From the moment of summons or arrest, a criminal charge is one of the most stressful experiences a person will face.
The first thing you want is to rush to a computer or get on your phone and learn as much as you can about what your charge means, what to expect, and figure out what to do next.
It is important at this stage to take a deep breath, try to inform yourself as much as possible, and then speak to a knowledgeable criminal defense attorney practicing in your jurisdiction.
We hope that the information here will help you gain a preliminary understanding of what you are charged with, what the government must prove in your case & some common defenses. That being said, nothing can take the place of a consultation with an attorney. The facts & circumstances surrounding criminal charges vary greatly. Something that might seem inconsequential to you could have a large impact on your case. It is only by discussing your charge with an experienced criminal lawyer that you can get a better handle on what will happen next. When searching that lawyer out, keep in mind that in depth knowledge of the law, the judges, prosecutors & procedures of the charging jurisdiction are essential to an excellent defense.
