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.
