What to Do After an Arrest
When you have been arrested, or after you learn of a criminal investigation against you, it is important that the first call you make is to your criminal defense attorney. Never speak to the police or prosecutors without having your lawyer present, as anything you say can be used against you in court. You have the right to refuse to answer questions, and even if you do answer anything, you have the right to stop at any time. We highly recommend you exercise this right.
Remain calm and contact the Law Offices of Patrick F. Lauer. We can meet with you in jail or at the police station, if necessary, and immediately get to work building a defense on your behalf.
Defense Solutions Tailored to Your Unique Case
A strong defense starts with a thorough investigation into the circumstances that led to your arrest. We will analyze the evidence against you, looking for evidence of police misconduct or anything that may exonerate you. We will then negotiate with the prosecution on your behalf or litigate your case by pervasively presenting your side of the story in front of the judge and jury.
We serve clients throughout Pennsylvania, including students attending Penn State and residents of Harrisburg, Cumberland County, and all of the surrounding communities. Because your freedom should not rest on what’s currently in your bank account, our firm accepts all major credit cards and offers flexible payment plans.
