When to Hire a Criminal Defense Attorney
You should hire a criminal defense attorney as soon as you know that you are under investigation or about to be charged. During the criminal investigation, the police are building their case, and an attorney can offer you advice and protect your legal rights throughout this phase of the proceedings. They can also influence determinations made by the prosecution during the pre-filing stage (where they decide whether to charge you and how severe the charges will be). However, if you do not (or cannot) retain an attorney before you are formally charged, you should hire an attorney immediately after you are arrested.
