Being arrested can be very traumatic experience. Wallin and Klarich has been representing individuals for over 30 years who have been arrested and charged with a crime. Here are just a few words of advice if you are in that unfortunate situation:

1) Remain silent- I have given the same advice to countless people at lectures I have given and who call me seeking my advice. I give them the six magic words. “Shut up, shut up, shut up.” There is rarely anything you can say at the time of arrest that will better your situation.

Remain silent and call an attorney. Many times what you say will be used against you later on in Court and what you say is often not mentioned in the police reports or simply written down wrong by the police.

2) Call a criminal attorney right away- Wallin and Klarich can help to get their clients bail lowered or even get them released on their own promise to appear without bail. It is always sound advice to seek counsel first.

Wallin and Klarich will seek an immediate release or seek a bail reduction that can often result in saving the family money in bail bond premiums.

3) Never resist arrest- it is a crime and often will get you into even more trouble.

In summary, if you are arrested, remain silent, call a criminal lawyer and go peacefully. Let Wallin and Klarich do the rest for you.
