Longwood Criminal Defense Lawyer

Your hands are cuffed behind your back, and your knees are pressed up against the seat in front of you. Although that seat seems to be made of cloth, the one you’re sitting in is made of plastic and extremely uncomfortable. You try to keep your head bowed as the vehicle stops at intersections and individuals peer through the backseat windows, hoping to identify what they see as just another criminal. Upon arriving at the station, it begins to feel all too real. You get your fingerprints taken, take your mugshot, and then you’re placed in a cell. By this time reality sets in. You are officially in the custody of the Longwood Police Department.

Putting together a substantial defense to the charges you face is most difficult without the help of an experienced attorney, which is why you should waste little time finding a criminal defense attorney who will fight for you to the end.

Immediate Actions After a Longwood Arrest

We understand that the moments after an arrest can be filled with many mixed emotions: anger, confusion, regret, anxiety. This is natural, but it is crucial that you realize the vitality of the days after your arrest. Your plea hearing may be only a few days or weeks away, and at that hearing, you’ll be expected to enter a plea. Without the help of a knowledgeable lawyer, you may make an irreversible decision that alters your life for good. Rather than rely on your gut or a public defender, take the time necessary to source a quality criminal defense attorney.
