If you have recently been arrested you may be sitting here wondering “What comes next?” It can be a frightening experience.

Some Advantages of Bringing Attorney Roberts with You to

Your First Court Appearance

There are many advantages to hiring Attorney Roberts before your first court appearance. The first reason is that he will have had an opportunity to meet with you and hear your side of the story. The second reason is that he will be able to explain the process to you so you know what to expect in the days to come. Third, Attorney Roberts can be prepared for any bail hearings that the prosecutor may request for that first court date. Fourth, in a small percentage of cases, it may be possible to have the case dismissed prior to arraignment or remanded for a clerk’s hearing. In those cases the charge will not show on your criminal record. Fifth, whether you are walking into court for an arraignment with a bail hearing, a bail revocation hearing, a dangerousness hearing, or for a quick simple arraignment, you and your attorney will be prepared.
