We Deliver Results

Your rights are time sensitive. It's imperative to seek representation as soon as possible before it's too late.

What to Do If You Are Arrested or Notified of Criminal Charges

Being arrested or notified of criminal charges can be a stressful and confusing experience. If you are arrested, stay calm and comply with the officers. Resisting arrest or becoming aggressive can worsen your situation.

Remember, you have the right to remain silent and the right to an attorney. Exercise these rights and avoid providing any statements without your attorney present.

As soon as possible, reach out to a qualified criminal defense attorney. Do not discuss the details of your case with anyone other than your attorney, including family members and friends. Anything you say could be used against you in court.

Preparing for Your First Court Appearance

Your first court appearance is an essential step in your defense. However, knowing what to do at your first hearing can be a challenge if you've never been involved in a legal issue before, let alone a criminal matter.

To prepare for your hearing, we encourage you to:

  • Dress appropriately: Wear professional attire to court. Dressing formally shows respect for the court and can create a positive impression.
  • Plan to arrive early: Arrive at least 30 minutes before your scheduled court time to allow for security checks and to find your courtroom. Being punctual is crucial.
  • Coordinate with your attorney: Before your court appearance, coordinate with your attorney to ensure you know where to go and where to meet. Discuss the hearing details and review any relevant documents or evidence.
  • Understand the proceedings: Have your attorney explain the court proceedings beforehand. Knowing what to expect can help you feel more confident and prepared.
  • Bring necessary documents: Carry any documents your attorney has advised you to bring, such as identification, court summons, and any documents related to your case.

      Frequently Asked Questions

      • What Does Family Law Cover?

        Family law is a branch of the legal system that deals with any scenario that is relevant to families. It handles things such as marriage, annulment, child custody, adoption and guardianship, child emancipation, domestic violence and abuse, and so forth.

      • What Do I Do After an Arrest?
        Remember that just because you have been arrested, it does not mean that you are automatically guilty. Once you have been brought to the police station, the bond will be set. This means that you do not have to sit in jail while the process is underway; you are free to go home to wait for your arraignment. The purpose of bail is to ensure that you return to court for the arraignment. If you are unable to post bail, then you will be required to remain in custody until the arraignment. The amount will be determined by the courts and may depend on the type of charges filed.
      • Do I Need an Attorney for Family Law Matters?

        You are not required to hire an attorney in family law scenarios, but you probably should. Any time you mix the law with your family, the situation is complex and emotionally charged. Legally, an attorney can provide advice, negotiate on your behalf, and represent you in court when necessary. They are familiar with the laws and regulations, and they work to protect their client’s rights and interests. Without an attorney, you risk making a costly mistake, or you may receive an unfavorable outcome.

      • Do I Need a Defense Attorney?
        Yes. If you have been arrested and are facing criminal charges, then it is in your best interests to hire a defense lawyer to represent you. Self-representation has a low success rate due to the complexity of Virginia criminal law. At The Law Offices of Daniel J. Miller, we are familiar with the local criminal courts, judges, and prosecutors. We have a strong success record and can help you build a strong defense strategy, no matter what charges you are facing. You should never go through this alone.
