Call (479) 777-0640 for Assistance from a Bentonville Criminal Defense Lawyer
Being arrested is never easy, whether is your first offense or not. In addition to the stress of the arrest itself, the immediate actions after the initial charge are often complicated and rely on strict deadlines and knowledge and insight into the law. With this in mind, it is vital that you have a Bentonville criminal defense attorney on your side as soon as possible to help protect your rights, your future, and your freedom.
Contact my firm, Cody W. Dowden, Attorney at Law, at (479) 777-0640 to schedule your free initial case consultation. I offer flexible appointment times and am available to meet with you after your arrest.
What Are My Rights?
After any arrest, it is important to remember that you have rights.
Known as your Miranda Rights, these include:
- The right to remain silent
- The right to have an attorney present during any questioning
- The right to not incriminate yourself
Exercising these rights is important, and the statement made popular on numerous television shows and movies rings true: Anything you say can be used against you. It is in your best interest to have a Bentonville criminal defense lawyer at your side as soon as possible. I will work to ensure all procedures are carried out in accordance with the law, that you are not mistreated, and that you do not accidentally say something that may later be used against you by the prosecution. Remember, the best defense starts with the right lawyer, so ensure you are making the right choice after your arrest.
