If You Face Charges
It is important that you speak with a criminal defence lawyer as soon as possible if you have been arrested or charged with an offence. There are a number of steps that can and should be taken to preserve your interests and help you to defend yourself if you face charges. Even if you intend to plead guilty, there may be important facts you are unaware of that can significantly affect the outcome of your case as well as the severity of any penalty you may face. It is very important that you know and understand your legal rights as early as possible upon arrest
