Your Rights After an Arrest
In the event that you are arrested for a violent crime, it is imperative that you remember your rights. First, you have the right to remain silent and, secondly, the right to an attorney; both of which should be actively exercised. The police are not your friends in this situation and trying to "talk your way out" may only result in your producing evidence against yourself. Remember, you do not know what the police may know, and you may say something that is incriminating. As soon as possible, you should retain the experienced counsel of the Law Offices of Kenneth H. Lewis. When you work with Ken Lewis, you will be retaining the experience of an attorney who has actively served the Los Angeles area for over 37 years.
