You’ve been charged with a crime. The arrest happens so quickly that you don’t know what’s going on. Before you have a chance to panic or start talking too much to the cops, you need to make sure that you have an attorney on your side. A Houston criminal defense attorney can meet you down at the police station and ensure that you know your rights so that you don’t incriminate yourself further. The police like to make you think that you are already guilty but you have rights – and you need a lawyer there to make sure that you get those rights.
