What to Do After a Schaumburg Arrest
Getting arrested for any crime is a stressful and overwhelming experience, even if you’ve been through the process before. However, the way you conduct yourself in the moments after an arrest can have a major impact on the ultimate outcome of your case.
Perhaps the most important thing to keep in mind after an arrest is that you are not legally required to speak with police officers or detectives. What’s more, once police officers arrest you, there is nothing you can say at the moment to “undo” the arrest; you aren’t going to change their mind. Of course, police officers or detectives may tell you that it will “look bad” for you if you decline to speak with them. However, you have the constitutional right to remain silent, and if you exercise that right, the government cannot hold it against you. In fact, should your case go to trial, the judge must instruct the jurors that they cannot make any negative inference from your decision to exercise your right to remain silent.
Even if you have nothing to hide, it is better to reach out to a dedicated Schaumburg criminal defense lawyer before talking to the police. That way, you don’t make what you think to be a harmless statement or comment that gets twisted around to make you look guilty. Clients regularly contact Anisa Jordan immediately after their arrest so she can deal with law enforcement on their behalf.

Why Not Use a Court-Appointed Lawyer?
Court-appointed lawyers, such as public defenders, can be hardworking and dedicated advocates who truly care about their clients. However, given the realities of the job they are asked to perform, court-appointed lawyers can also have very large caseloads. So large, in fact, that it is often difficult for them to spend an adequate amount of time on each case they handle.
