Criminal Defense Lawyers Handling Bail Hearings Across the Region
One of the earliest formal parts of a criminal case is the arraignment. In the arraignment, the defendant hears what charges the government has elected to file against him or her. The defendant will also have the opportunity to enter a plea of guilty or not guilty. In addition, the judge will release the defendant on his or her recognizance, decide that bail is not appropriate, or set bail. Although the arraignment is usually very brief, the arraignment involves many important issues that will impact the nature of your criminal charges. If you or someone you love is going to be arraigned, a knowledgeable defense attorney can be an invaluable ally.

Providing a Strong Defense From the Initial Stages
One of the most important parts of the arraignment is the bail hearing. The judge will listen to the prosecutor and defense attorney make arguments as to the appropriateness of bail. In certain situations, the prosecutor may argue that bail is not appropriate and that the defendant should be remanded to jail. At your arraignment, it is absolutely vital that your defense lawyer is able to make a concise, effective argument that you are a solid candidate for a bail that you can afford. Our lawyers routinely represent clients in all types of hearings, and will make a forceful presentation of your position.
As important as it is to have a defense lawyer present at your arraignment, is it just as important, if not more so, to involve a lawyer before arraignment. Our New York City arraignment lawyers will protect your Fifth Amendment right to avoid self-incrimination, and can negotiate matters with prosecutors and law enforcement.
