If you have been charged with a crime in Buffalo, New York, it is important to have an experienced, local criminal defense attorney to help you as early in the process as possible. Many people might think that it is not important to get an attorney until their case reaches a court hearing, but that is not the case. From the minute you are arrested, you have a limited amount of time to prepare your case.

Know Your Rights After Arrest

You are presumed innocent until proven guilty. Your rights include: the right to an attorney, the right to present evidence and witnesses to establish one’s innocence, the right to a speedy trial, the right to a public jury and the right to remain silent.

If you are convicted of a felony, this will severely impact your future. As a convicted felon, not only will you spend time in jail, but you will lose some of your rights as a citizen, as well.

Being charged with a crime can have a serious impact on you and your loved ones. A felony conviction may result in lengthy incarceration, parole and probation, as well as fines and surcharges. That’s why it is imperative to have an experienced criminal defense attorney with extensive trial experience at your side from the moment you are charged with a crime.
