After an Arrest

Defense from a Skilled Violent Crime and Drug Crime Lawyer in Denver

After an arrest, you have options. No matter what type of violent crime or drug charge you are up against, you can rely on Castle & Castle to help defend your rights and protect your future. Without the representation of an attorney, you may be facing steep penalties. A conviction can impact your employment, ability to obtain loans, education, and many other aspects of your personal life in addition to exposing you to potential sentencing by the court. The Colorado courts are a dangerous place to be if you are unrepresented. At Castle & Castle, you can retain the representation of a Denver drug crime lawyer to help you through the criminal process.

What You Should Do After an Arrest

We recommend following a few simple steps to help improve your chances of receiving a favorable outcome for your case. Following an arrest for a drug crime, it is important that you:

Know your rights.
Under the law, you have rights. It is important that you understand these rights and exercise them at the time of an arrest. You have the right to remain silent and the right to an attorney. Castle & Castle encourages our clients to never speak with law enforcement or answer questions without first contacting our firm.

Never consent to a search without a warrant.
One of the first things that an officer will try to get you to do is submit to a search or give them probable cause to search you or your property. If an officer does not have a warrant for a search, you do not have to consent to a search! Remember, remain quiet and simply state that you do not consent to a search and that you wish to speak with an attorney.

Be courteous and respectful to law enforcement officers.
It may be normal to want to argue or contest what the officers are doing; however, this is not recommended! Being polite and respectful to the officers will help you in the long run. Resisting arrest can only cause you further legal complications and can result in additional charges.

Be mindful of what you say!
Remember, everything you say can and will be held against you in a court of law. Even if officers are questioning you and trying to get you to admit to something or coerce you into cooperating with them, be wary. You may state your name and age, but ask to speak with an attorney prior to answering any questions.
