Criminal Law FAQs

Do I Have To Answer Police Questions?

You must provide basic information regarding your identity when asked by the police. However, if you are being questioned during an interrogation or while under arrest, our California and Federal Laws, including the Constitution of the United States, grants everyone the right to remain silent and the right to retain legal counsel before answering any questions from the police

I Have A Warrant For My Arrest In California. What Should I Do?

Contact an experienced criminal defense attorney to review your charges, the warrant’s details, and your overall case with him or her to build a strategy to move forward. Your attorney will advise you of your rights and the best legal course of action to proceed while informing the court that you have retained counsel.

Do I Have To Return To Court After Being Released On Bail In Los Angeles?

Yes. Even when you are released on bail, the court will establish a future hearing date that you must attend to avoid a warrant being issued for your arrest. If you have not already retained legal representation, it is important to do so before your court appearance.

Can I Change Criminal Defense Attorneys If I Am Unhappy With Mine?

Yes. It is your right to hire any criminal defense attorney you choose. If you believe your hired counsel is not providing the representation you deserve, you are free to choose another criminal defense attorney. It is important to do so early in the legal process, as the court may deny a request to change attorneys is if there is insufficient time for the new lawyer to prepare for trial. If you have been assigned a court-appointed attorney, your options are less fluid, but still exist. Talk to the judge about any questions you may have about your representation before switching counsel.

Should I Take A Plea Bargain If The Prosecutor Offers One?

Before accepting a plea bargain from the prosecutor’s office, speak with an experienced criminal defense attorney first to ensure your rights are protected and learn how each consequence outlined in the agreement affects your livelihood now and going forward.
