Time is Critical
When you or someone you care about are dealing with criminal law issues timing is critical. Decisions are made in the first few hours after an arrest and statements are taken that will dramatically affect the outcome of the trial which is months or even years away.
Nothing is more urgent then obtaining legal counsel to protect your rights and assist you in obtaining speedy and reasonable bail.
Why you need your own attorney for your Bail Hearing
Under the criminal code, the person charged should be taken in front of a Judge or Justice of the Peace for their bail hearing within 24 hours. The reality is sometimes a little different. Courts are overloaded and while there are excellent lawyers within the duty counsel system, they are trying to deal with, and assist, everybody who is unrepresented.
Obtaining your own counsel, focussed only on you and your rights, can ensure that your bail hearing happens as early as possible. A poorly run bail hearing can mean weeks or even months spent in jail without ever having been convicted of a criminal offence.
You have the right to remain silent, use it.
Do not give up your rights!
