Ventura Trial Attorney
Call for Your Free 30 Minute Consultation

Right to an Attorney

After arrest, you have a Constitutional right to consult with counsel during:

  • Questioning while in police custody
  • Commencement of formal proceedings
  • All other critical stages of the proceedings, including lineups, jury selection, sentencing, trial, etc.

While you are in jail, you also have a right to privately consult with your attorney.

Do not let anyone deny you this important right. Politely ask for an attorney. Do not answer any further questions until a qualified attorney is with you. Many convictions occur because police interrogation can be extremely stressful. Sometimes even innocent people make false confessions. Other times in the heat of the moment people forget details and it appears they are not telling the truth, even if they are only confused.

Contact the Law Office of Christopher P. Welch today. Our Ventura criminal defense lawyer is prepared to help with your case.
