Frequently Asked Questions About Criminal Defense:
What should I do if I am arrested in montgomery county?
If you are arrested in montgomery county, it is important to remember that you have the right to remain silent and the right to an attorney. You should exercise both of these rights.

What should I look for in a criminal defense attorney in montgomery county?
When choosing a criminal defense attorney in montgomery county, you should look for an attorney who has experience defending clients against the type of charges you are facing. You should also look for an attorney who is responsive to your needs, who will listen to you, and who will explain your options in a way that you can understand. Finally, you should choose an attorney who has a track record of success in defending clients against criminal charges.
Will I go to jail if I am convicted of a crime?
The answer to this question depends on the specific circumstances of your case. The severity of the charges in montgomery county, the strength of the evidence against you, and your criminal history are all factors that will be taken into consideration. However, if you are facing criminal charges, it is important to remember that you have the right to a fair trial and the right to a strong defense.
Can I represent myself in court?
You have the right to represent yourself in court, but it is not recommended. Criminal defense law is complex, and the consequences of a conviction can be severe. A criminal defense attorney has the knowledge, skill, and experience to effectively defend your rights and your freedom. If you cannot afford an attorney, you may be eligible for a court-appointed attorney.
What is a plea bargain?
A plea bargain is an agreement between the defendant and the prosecution in which the defendant agrees to plead guilty, in exchange for either a reduced sentence, a lesser charge, or some other agreement. Plea bargains are common in criminal cases and can be an effective way to resolve a case without going to trial, and avoiding risks associated with unknown sentencing outcomes.
How long will my case take?
The length of a criminal case varies depending on the specific circumstances of the case. Some cases may be resolved quickly, while others may take several months or even years to resolve. Factors that can affect the length of a case include the complexity of the charges, the strength of the evidence against you, and the number of cases on the court’s docket.
