Brooklyn Arraignments Bail Attorney
Over 20 Years of Outstanding Legal Representation
If you or a loved one has been arrested or is about to be arrested, you must immediately contact a reputable Brooklyn criminal defense attorney. The NYPD understands that the sooner they get a confession, obtain a positive identification, and "lock-in" witness testimony, the more difficult it will be for a defendant to avoid a conviction. At The Law Offices of Wilson Antonio LaFaurie, we know how to act fast in protecting each client’s rights and future.
The arraignment and bail process is a crucial part of any criminal case. The outcome will determine whether you can go home after your court appearance or be forced to sit in jail for weeks while your case works its way through the court system. It is essential to be represented by an experienced lawyer.
As your advocate, we will waste no time in doing the following:
- Before or during the arrest, we will call the arresting officer, detective, and the supervising agent to notify NYPD that legal counsel has been retained. All questioning of our client must stop.
- Fax a letter to the precinct repeating that counsel has been retained and that all interrogation must cease. If a line-up or identification procedure will take place, we will be present so that the integrity is not compromised.
- Negotiate and attempt to prevent the arrest from occurring.
- Learn from law enforcement the evidence that is the basis for the probable cause.
- Prepare oral arguments for to get the defendant a release on recognizance.
From our law office in Brooklyn, we represent clients at arraignments throughout the New York City area. Our goal in any arraignment to negotiate low bail or no bail so you can go on with your life.
What Is Arraignment?
At the beginning of any criminal trial proceeding, you will appear before a judge who will decide whether you can go free with a reasonable bail or not. To persuade a judge to allow you to go free, your attorney will need to provide evidence that you are a good person with responsibilities such as a job and a family. That evidence may include affidavits and other records that can convince a judge.
If you are allowed to go home after your arrest, you can continue to work to support yourself and your family. You will also be in a better position to assist with your defense against the criminal charges.
The Importance of Calling an Attorney Right Away
If you think you are facing arrest, you should contact an arraignment attorney before the arrest takes place. Taking a proactive approach may allow you to turn yourself in and arrange bail at the same time, helping you avoid jail and other unplanned consequences. You can avoid the embarrassment of having police show up at your home or place of work to arrest you. You could be in and out of court before your co-workers and neighbors even know you were arrested.
The factors that the judge will consider at arraignments are the following:
- Bail and recommended for release
- Family/friends appear in court
- Employed/school history
- U.S. citizen
- Voluntarily surrender with an attorney
- Long-time resident of New York State
- Proof of home or apartment
