Act Quickly After an Arrest or Accident
If you have been arrested, it is very important to quickly hire a Palm Beach attorney. For example, in a DUI case, the person who is arrested will automatically lose their license for at least 6 months if the appropriate steps are not taken within 10 days of the arrest. Additionally, acting quickly may allow the attorney to speak to the State Attorney’s office before the prosecutor files charges. The attorney may convince the prosecutor not to file charges or to file misdemeanor charges if the person was arrested for a felony. Finally, acting quickly allows the attorney to prepare your defense early on in the case. You do not want to wait until weeks or months after the arrest to hire an attorney. Waiting to hire a lawyer may jeopardize your chances of getting your charges dismissed. If you or a loved one has been arrested, contact a Palm Beach criminal defense lawyer from Bottari & Doyle, P.A. at (561)-588-2781 for a free consultation.
