Being charged with a crime or held in the custody of the government can be a confusing and frightening time, and knowing the right thing to do can have a significant impact on the outcome of your case. If you can remember to follow the steps outlined below, you will have succeeded in making the best decisions for your future.
STEP TWO: DO NOT TALK TO ANYONE EXCPET A CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEY
In those critical moments after you or a love one has been arrested it is critical not to panic and make a difficult situation worse. Contact a qualified Orange County criminal lawyer as soon as possible, but in the meantime, do not act impulsively or make any hasty decisions.
This includes talking with the police, calling a bail bond company, talking to the media or anyone else. While it is certainly understandable that you may want to get out of jail or put the matter behind you as soon as possible, the wrong step can have serious negative consequences to your case, involving the waiver of important rights or the loss of important strategic moves you may have had available to you.
Before telling your story or talking to the police you should consider first talking to the Law Office of Dyke Huish. By discussing your case with a well-qualified and experienced criminal attorney in Orange County, like Mr. Huish, you can make an informed decision on your best course of action.
Remember, the police have no intention of helping anyone they think has been involved in a crime.
Even if you haven't been arrested, if the police have targeted you as a suspect, their questioning of you is for the purpose of building a case against you and generating cause for an arrest. It is generally not done for the purpose of ruling you out as a suspect so they can move on to someone else.
WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU HAVE BEEN ARRESTED.
In many cases, Mr. Huish waives his customary initial consultation fee for qualified potential clients.

I called a lawyer friend who turned me over to Dyke Huish. Even though bail had been set at $50,000, Mr. Huish was able to get me sone released without me having to post any money at all.
