If you are contacted by any law enforcement agency, do not make any statements, even those denying involvement, as they will most likely be used to build a case against you later.

What to do if you are arrested?
In most circumstances no one knows when they or a loved one will be arrested. The situation can be frightening and overwhelming. Should an arrest occur you should contact a knowledgeable and experienced criminal attorney who will be able to provide sound legal advice no matter the hour of the day. Depending on what you are arrested for you may be held in the local jail in the county in which you were arrested. A standard bond should be available for the offense charged once you have gone through the booking procedure. You will have the ability to have the bond posted in cash or you may contact a reputable bail bondsman to post your bond for a fee. However, there are other charges such as DUI, which require you to be held in custody for a period of 8 hours or until your breath alcohol level is less than .05%. Other charges such as Domestic Battery require that you be held NO Bond until seen by a judge at your first appearance who will set your bond.
