If you’ve been accused of a serious violent crime, you could be facing prison time, a life sentence, or even the death penalty. In this situation, you obviously want someone with sound legal advice to walk you through your case and all the possible outcomes, as well as someone who will aggressively defend you and be by your side each step in the process.

The Criminal Justice Process

1.) Within 48 hours of your arrest, you will appear in court

2.) The prosecutor will file a formal complaint for charges

3.) You attend a court hearing to hear the formal charges, a time when you can plead guilty or not guilty

4.) Pre-trial hearings

5.) Your attorney works with the prosecutor and court to reach a plea agreement (if not reached, the case will go to trial)
