  • What Is the Criminal Defense case process?

    Facing a criminal defense case can be frightening and confusing if it's your first time. Knowing what to expect helps you feel more ready. Here are the main steps:

    1. Arrest
    2. Arraignment
    3. Pre-trial motions
    4. Please negotiations
    5. Trial
    6. Sentencing hearing
    7. Appeal

    Not all cases go to trial; many are resolved through plea negotiations. Our skilled attorney can negotiate a favorable plea deal for you. If a plea deal isn't best, we're prepared to advocate for you in court. Read more on our Criminal Defense page.
