Make Baginski Brandt & Brandt Your First Call after a Detention or Arrest in Stuart, Florida
Whenever you are in police custody in Stuart, meaning you have been arrested or detained and are not free to leave, the very first thing you should do is to call the Stuart criminal defense lawyers at Baginski Brandt & Brandt. If you’ve watched any police drama in the past 50 years, you know that “you have the right to remain silent,” “the right to an attorney,” and that “anything you say can be used against you.” This is not just television; it’s reality. Exercising your rights to remain silent and have any attorney are the most important things you can do after an arrest to protect yourself and set yourself up for the best possible outcome in your Stuart criminal case.
The police and the district attorney may try to convince you that talking to them is your best shot at “clearing things up” or getting a lenient sentence. What they are actually trying to do is get evidence from you they can use against you in court, or better yet obtain a confession and guilty plea. Even a meaningless, innocent statement can be hugely detrimental to your case if the prosecutors can make it look inconsistent with the facts or other statements you made. An experienced criminal defense attorney will help make sure you don’t make any incriminating statements and that you don’t feel pressured by the police into making mistakes that jeopardize your case.
Your Stuart Criminal Law Attorney is Looking Out for You
Friends and family can offer emotional support, but only your Stuart attorney will be looking out for your legal interests and protecting your rights. The police and prosecutors are not on your side, the judge must remain impartial, and courthouse staff are unable to give you any legal advice. Even a public defender may be lacking in experience or knowledge or not have the time necessary to give to your case. Without the proper advice and representation, important constitutional rights you have may be accidentally waived by you or ignored by police who know better. When you hire the Stuart criminal defense lawyers at Baginski Brandt & Brandt, you have experienced criminal law attorneys in your corner who are duty bound to put your interests above all else and provide you with the best representation they can.
