Criminal Defense Frequently Asked Questions

Our team of criminal defense attorneys know the ins and outs of how the system works.

Can I represent myself?

Yes, you have the right to represent yourself in a criminal case. A judge must first determine you legally competent. As long as you are determined to be legally competent, give up the right to an attorney, and understand the court proceedings, you are entitled to represent yourself. 

There are several reasons why we would not suggest you represent yourself and instead hire a criminal defense attorney. This includes: lack of courtroom experience, you may make self-incriminating statements, and you may not understand court rules.

What is an arraignment?

An arraignment is the initial formal hearing before a court in a criminal case. During an arraignment the court will announce the charges that have been filed against the defendant. The defendant will also be advised of his/her rights, the consequences of a plea, and asked how they plead.

How long does a criminal case last?

There are many factors that will play a part in determining how long your case will take. These factors include the complexity of your case, where you were charged, your criminal history, and the type of charge it is (misdemeanor or felony). A felony case can last several months and even over a year. A misdemeanor case can be resolved in a few weeks or months.
