A family member has been arrested. Now what?
Many of Witt Law’s clients have never been arrested before and never will be arrested again. Being handcuffed and hauled off to jail is a frightening, confusing experience for both for the client and the family. What should I do now? Who do I call? The first thing to do is to get a competent, experienced attorney out to the jail to help as soon as possible. The first hours after an arrest can be critical, especially for the purposes of setting and making bail. First Appearance in front of a Judge usually happens within twenty-four hours of arrest, and this can be the best chance for a quick release. Call Attorney Jonathan Witt today for help and counsel in the first important hours after an arrest.
