Have You Been Arrested in Harris County? Contact Us Today at (713) 224-4040!

If you or a loved one has been arrested by a member of Houston law enforcement, it’s important to remember that you have rights – even before you are formally arrested. In the state of Texas, probable cause isn’t enough to arrest someone without a warrant – the person must also fulfill other circumstances.

If you are arrested for a lawful reason, you have certain rights that you may choose to practice. These include:

  • The right to remain silent
  • The right to retain the services of an attorney
  • The right to have an attorney present when questioned by law enforcement
  • The right to have an attorney end any questioning at any time

Understanding these rights can be an incredible help to you in the long run.

Why Do You Need a Criminal Defense Attorney?

If you are under the intense pressure of a potential criminal conviction, it may be tempting to either use a court-appointed attorney or represent yourself in any proceedings. However, this can be ill-advised. Even cases which are seemingly simple can prove troublesome to someone without much knowledge or experience in law. Additionally, court-appointed attorneys are often too busy and overloaded with other casework to give you the time and attention you deserve.

This is why it is crucial to seek out a Houston criminal defense attorney who can give you personalized attention and fight for your needs. A proper attorney with established experience in criminal defense can give you the attention, resources, and legal know how necessary to help successfully defend you from any potential criminal charges.

What to Do After an Arrest in Houston

It is highly recommended to take the following steps during and after you’ve been arrested in Houston.

  • Stay calm. Recognize that this is a high-stress situation for both you and the police officers tasked with arresting you. By staying calm, you prevent the situation from potentially escalating.
  • Comply with all orders. Listen to any orders the law enforcement officers give you and follow them as well as you can – even if you believe the arrest was unfair or unwarranted. Failure to comply with police orders can result in additional criminal charges and potential injury.
  • Remain silent. Do not answer any questions the police may ask, and do not offer any information. Law enforcement can use whatever you say against you in court. For example, any testimony that is even minorly conflicting can be used to question your character as a potential suspect.
  • Contact an attorney. Continue to remain quiet until you retain the services of a Houston criminal defense lawyer. You have a right to remain silent until you have legal counsel by your side.

Following this general order can ensure that complications and other additional stresses are kept at a minimum.
