If you've been arrested and charged with a crime – no matter if it is a misdemeanor or a felony -- the importance of acting quickly to ensure that your rights are preserved cannot be understated. As soon as you are arrested, the state begins to assemble its case against you, and the District Attorney begins preparations to get a conviction. Becoming informed about your rights and insurance coverage as soon as possible after a criminal investigation starts is of great importance to prepare you for the inevitable plea-bargaining process with the DA. A trained Homewood criminal defense attorney gives you resources and access to information that will help you defend yourself and preserve your freedom.
