How Our Attorneys Handle Your Case

What to Expect When You Hire Our Firm

Every case we handle receives the personalized attention and individualized care deserved. Trust that we keep your best interests in mind. Our criminal defense lawyers are devoted to bringing peace of mind to our clients, as we know how sensitive legal matters can be. We do just that by keeping the lines of communication open and navigating them through the justice system in a way that helps them make informed decisions the entire way through.

What Should I Do if I've Been Arrested?

Just because you've been arrested, it does not mean you've been convicted or will be convicted of a crime. Your first move should be to call a criminal defense lawyer to come and represent your best interests during this crucial time.

Remember that if you are arrested, you have certain legal rights, which include the right to remain silent, the right to an attorney, the right to a trial by jury or judge, and others. You are not obligated to answer any questions by law enforcement, and it is usually in your best interests to remain silent so that nothing you say can be used against you later.

You do not need to consent to a search of your vehicle or home unless law enforcement presents a valid search warrant. Without a warrant, they need “probable cause” to legally search your property, but you have the right to refuse that search. Instead, contact a lawyer for advisement.

With a skilled lawyer by your side, you stand a stronger chance of meeting a favorable outcome, whether we negotiate a plea bargain, fight for dismissal, or fight for reduced charges. Contact the Harrisburg criminal defense attorneys at Caraciolo Law Group, P.C. today!
