FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions For Fort Myers Criminal Lawyers
When should I involve a criminal defense lawyer?
You should consult a criminal defense lawyer as soon as you become aware that you are the subject of a police investigation, immediately after you have been arrested or as soon as you are contacted by law enforcement regarding a criminal matter. Even if charges have not been formally filed against you, you may be at risk of facing prosecution and a conviction for a criminal offense. A lawyer can review your situation and determine whether immediate legal counsel is necessary. In addition to providing you with the legal representation you need in court, an attorney can actually work to ensure that charges are not filed against you.
