Criminal Defense FAQ

I'm Facing Criminal Charges. Should I Get An Attorney?

Absolutely. Without the assistance of a criminal defense lawyer, you may not know what defenses are available to you or how to present them in court. Even if you think there is nothing an attorney can do for you, you should still get a criminal defense attorney.

I'm Under Investigation. Should I Get An Attorney?

Yes. If you are under investigation, investigators are probably trying to contact you and people around you. It's important that you get a lawyer so they can advise you of your rights and how to conduct yourself. The sooner you get an attorney, the better chance you have of protecting yourself against criminal charges.

Fisher Law Office can help gather the facts of your case and build a solid defense to protect your rights.

I Was Arrested For A DUI. What Should I Do Next?

Contact an attorney immediately to help preserve your driving privilege. Shortly after the arrest, law enforcement probably took your physical license from you and gave you a temporary license, which is only valid for 30 days. An experienced attorney can help you contact the DMV to request a hearing. At Fisher Law Office, we will make that request for you at no expense to you regardless of whether you retain us or not.

How Do I Fight DUI Charges?

The best way is to work with a skilled criminal defense attorney who has a lot of experience handling DUI cases. They will know how to verify that proper procedures for field sobriety and breath tests were followed.

What Is An Arraignment?

An arraignment is the first court date in a criminal court case. At the arraignment, the judge will officially state the charges against the defendant and the defendant will have the opportunity to enter a plea of not guilty, no contest or guilty. However, it's common for the defense to require additional evidence or information before the case can be resolved.

How Long Will It Take To Resolve My Case?

It depends on several factors. Some case may be resolved fairly quickly, but others, due to their complex nature, take longer to resolve. Some cases require certain items of evidence that take longer to obtain or investigation that takes longer to complete. Additionally, negotiations with the district attorney may take some time.
