Guidance for the Arrested & Accused in Virginia

Being charged with a crime is frustrating, annoying, and embarrassing. It can cause major disruptions to your life, professionally, socially, and financially. In addition, the stress, worry, and anxiety can be overwhelming. While you may feel shameful, remember that there is no shame in standing up for your rights.

When should I hire an attorney?

Immediately after an arrest, you should take swift and immediate action to contact a skilled criminal defense lawyer. Under no circumstances should you speak to an officer without speaking with an attorney first – oftentimes officers will try to get you to answer incriminating questions. You still have rights, even during an arrest, and it is our job to protect those rights.

Protect your rights during an arrest by doing the following:

  • Remain silent
  • Exercise your right to an attorney
  • Decline taking a polygraph test, if offered
  • Avoid confrontation with officers
