Tips on How to Respond to an Arrest

An arrest is a stressful and confusing experience. If you or a loved one has been in this situation, it's important that you know how to conduct yourself in order to have a better chance at a lighter sentence or even at a dismissed charge! The most important thing to remember is to get in contact with a trusted and experienced criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible.

What not to do during and after an arrest:

Don't argue that you are innocent. The more you say, the more that could be twisted and held against you. Wait until you can speak with a lawyer to make your side of the story heard.

Don't run away from law enforcement. Running away from law enforcement will only make things worse. You may experience a more forceful arrest as a result.

Don't talk more than is necessary. Again, anything you say could be misconstrued to mean that you are guilty. Speak as little as possible until you are able to explain your case to your lawyer.

Don't resist arrest. Do not push away or otherwise resist an officer who is attempting to arrest you. This could mean additional charges.
