Facing criminal charges? Here's what you should do next.

Being accused of any crime can be scary. The decisions you make next are going to have a huge impact on your future. With decades of experience in criminal defense law, Jennifer knows how to give you a fighting chance in court.

Here are a few of the key steps you need to take:

1. Stay silent—anything you say to an officer can be used to incriminate you later.
2. Remain as calm and polite as possible—we know this isn’t always easy, but resisting arrest or arguing with police can only make matters worse.
3. Contact an attorney right away—every moment you spend without a criminal defense attorney by your side is hurting your chances at freedom.
4. Share as much detail as possible with your attorney—having all the facts will allow your criminal defense attorney to properly prepare for your case.
5. Write down exactly what you remember—you can’t always trust your memory weeks or months after the incident.

Our criminal defense attorney can start negotiating terms with the arresting officers right away, potentially getting charges dropped before things can get out of hand. Contact the Law Office of Jennifer DeCastro Tunnard now to retain an attorney in Danbury, CT.
