Have You Been Falsely Accused Of A Crime?

This is the legal nightmare that everyone dreads: being accused of a crime you did not commit. You were in the wrong place at the wrong time, or you were falsely identified by a witness, or someone has told the police a story that puts you in the worst possible light.

There are numerous defenses for the falsely accused: establishing an alibi, proving misidentification, identifying circumstantial evidence and others. We will listen to your story and apply the defense that is most beneficial to you.

In the meantime, here are five things an individual who has been wrongfully accused can work on right away:

  1. Keep your mouth firmly closed. When you are arrested, police will act like they are doing you a favor by offering advice. Don't be fooled. They will use whatever you say to put you away — no matter how friendly they seem.
  2. Don't minimize your situation. When serious accusations are made against you, is no time to hope it will just go away. Admit you have a struggle ahead of you, and get to work.
  3. Hire the best defense you can. Contact several lawyers. Make sure they have experience with your charges. It's important to feel comfortable with the lawyer you choose. It's best when the lawyer has skills specific to the charges you face.
  4. Learn, but also trust. You want to understand what is happening, and what to expect, and a good lawyer will stop and explain matters. But you also need to trust your lawyer. Your case is full of legal complexities and terminology that you don't really need to take the time to know about. Remember, time is money.
  5. Make a diary. Work with your lawyer to create a history and schedule for your case. Start from the moment of your arrest and go forward. This diary will be useful to your lawyer.
