Minute 1/Day 1
That is when your defense begins. From time to time I speak with potential clients who tell me they will wait until after the arraignment to hire a lawyer. I understand this logic, but it is flawed. There are tactics which are time sensitive.
Recently I had a client's family member call me within 10 minutes of his arrest. This is someone who is serious about their defense. My plan of action began before my client arrived at the jail.
When a crisis happens, don't let valuable time slip by. We are there for you 24/7.
