The first few hours of a legal situation are the most critical. Often, by the time a criminal lawyer has been retained, damage to a case has already occurred, often without a person’s knowledge. Preserving evidence, obtaining statements from critical witnesses, and requesting records are all essential steps in assuring a positive case outcome.
