If you’ve been accused of committing a crime – whether it’s a felony or misdemeanor, and whether you’re innocent or made a mistake – it’s important that you get in touch with a Rolling Meadows criminal lawyer as soon as possible. Your attorney can answer your questions during the entire legal process, and he’ll be able to fight hard to get you the best possible outcome.
What Can a Rolling Meadows Criminal Lawyer Do for You?
When you’re accused of a crime, you need somebody on your side. Your criminal defense attorney will use his knowledge of the law, experience with the judge overseeing your case, and every tool at his disposal to protect your rights every step of the way.
What Happens After You’re Arrested?
If you’re arrested in Rolling Meadows, the police will most likely take you to jail. You’ll be “booked,” which means you’ll be processed into the system by having your fingerprints and photo taken.
You’ll wait in jail until you can go before a judge, who will let you know whether you can bond yourself out. Bond isn’t available to everyone – only to people the judge feels will show up in court when they’re supposed to. If the judge grants you bond and you have the money, you can pay the fees and go home. Later, if you don’t show up to court, you forfeit all that money and the court will issue a warrant for your arrest.
Your Rolling Meadows criminal lawyer will stay in contact with you between your court dates – you’re always welcome to call or email if you have questions, too – and he’ll keep you updated on the status of your case.
When it’s time for you to appear in court, your attorney will be right by your side. He’ll speak for you in court and present a defense to the crime you’re accused of committing. He can give the court evidence that works in your favor and, in some cases, he may be able to get the judge to exclude some of the prosecutor’s evidence – and that can help you get the best possible outcome.
Where Will You Go to Court?
The courthouse is located at 2121 Euclid Avenue. Your Rolling Meadows criminal lawyer will meet you there before your appearance. If you have questions, or if your attorney has questions for you, you’ll have time to talk.
