Common Mistakes People Make With Criminal Law Emergencies
- They Self-Diagnose on the Computer
There is only so much you can google about a situation where someone has an urgent criminal legal problem. There is no substitute for picking up the phone and calling a lawyer who has handled thousands of cases. If you had a true medical emergency, would you call 911 or would you go to a search engine?
- They panic too Little
I can’t tell you how often someone comes into my office after it’s too late. They considered calling a lawyer earlier but because they didn’t their situation is worse than it was before. People often follow their gut instinct which is understandable. The problem when you face an unknown and new situation is “you don’t know what you don’t know.” We’ve handled thousands of cases. We can tell you if there is a problem or not and what to do.
- They Panic too Much
We can help ease the stress for some problems — which just aren’t problems. We do see plenty of cases where someone or their loved one is worried sick about a situation that isn’t worth the mental strain of the worry. Nothing makes us happier than to give some good news and help people understand criminal proceedings, consequences, or jail is simply unrealistic or far-fetched.
Your Call is Welcome 24/7
If you’re having a criminal law emergency, please call (again, no traffic tickets or warrants please). If you’re just web-surfing then put the phone number in your phone. I hope you never need it, but putting it in your phone is absolutely free and it could save you valuable time if you ever do need to find a criminal lawyer in a hurry.
