What to Do if You Are Arrested

The first and most important step you should take is to call a lawyer, or to have your family call a lawyer for you. Only a lawyer can ensure that you are not questioned and can protect you from making statements that may hurt you later on.

DO NOT MAKE ANY STATEMENTS OTHER THAN YOUR NAME AND THAT YOU WANT TO SPEAK TO YOUR LAWYER. CALL EPSTEIN & WEIL, LLC.

Why?

  • Any information you can potentially provide that will help your case can be provided later.
  • Any other information that can potentially hurt your case should be first reviewed by an attorney first to protect your rights.
  • Epstein & Weil LLC has lawyers on call 24 hours a day, with the experience you need.

If you are arrested or anticipate receiving legal papers like a search warrant, the attorneys of the New York City law firm of Epstein & Weil LLC can provide effective legal help aimed at:

  • Protecting your rights
  • Keeping you out of jail and free from fines
  • Investigating the facts
