Experience on your side in Calabasas, CA

If you have been arrested, it is important that you contact a criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. Your attorney can counsel you on what to say during your interrogation and can help guard your Fifth Amendment rights. You should not make any statements about the crime or incriminate yourself.

It is also wise to call a bail bondsman to post bail for you after being arrested. In many cases, the bail bondsman will be able to post bail for a much lower fee than a lawyer will charge. The court may also require you to enter into a pre-trial diversion program, which often involves drug treatment and counseling sessions.

When it comes to contacting an attorney, not just any attorney will do. It’s best to work with an attorney who knows the prosecutors and courts in Calabasas and has a good reputation working with them.
