Immediate Actions Following Arrest In Daytona Beach

Many people who get arrested fail to realize how essential it is to secure legal representation soon after their arrest. In Florida, you will be required to see a judge within 24 hours of your arrest. This is called the First Appearance. During this First Appearance, the judge decides whether or not the arresting officer had legitimate grounds to arrest you and see if you are eligible for release among other things.

It may be beneficial to secure legal representation before the First Appearance to place your criminal defense lawyer in the best position to start building your case. If the First Appearance has already passed, you should still acquire a lawyer who can provide substantial criminal defense for the remainder of court proceedings.
