at a positive outcome. At DeCurtins Law Office, our Charlotte criminal

After an arrest, it is important to remember the following tips:
- Request a lawyer immediately. It is your right to remain silent and talking
to the police without an attorney may lead to unintentionally incriminating
yourself which can be detrimental to your case.
- Be polite and cooperative. While you should not answer any questions pertaining
to the case without representation, you should still be polite and cooperative
during the booking process. Failure to cooperate can escalate your situation
and may cast you in an unfavorable light in the courtroom.
- Immediately communicate with Mr. DeCurtins regarding the setting of bond
or in order to prepare for a bond hearing.
- Attend all required hearings after posting bail. Failure to appear in court
can not only negatively impact your case, but will likely also result
in order for your arrest.
- Be open and honest with your attorney. The best way to build a successful
defense is by telling your lawyer the complete truth and asking any questions
you might have. By being completely forthright with our Charlotte criminal
defense attorney, you enable him to more effectively represent your interest.
