If the police or other authorities are investigating you for a crime, you will need an experienced attorney to prevent them from charging you. If you have already been charged with a crime or have been arrested, then you will have an arraignment where a judge will set your bail. Having an attorney at your bail hearing (arraignment) can make the difference between whether you sit in jail until your trial or spend that time in the comfort of your own home.
A preliminary hearing is the next step where the judge listens to the evidence supplied by the government to determine if there is sufficient evidence to schedule your case for trial. Following this is a pretrial conference—a court date where the judge, prosecutor, and your attorney discuss the case to see whether it can be resolved. Each of these steps requires a skilled attorney who can fight for your rights and interests.
