Legal Answers
396 Questions Answered
Q. Is it wise to secure the legal services of a criminal defense attorney before they are actually needed
A: It is very prudent to discuss your potential exposure to ANY prospective criminal charges BEFORE they appear with an experienced defense counsel in confidence without any delay. Here is why: your immediate personal conduct, statements and actions may play a critical part in either getting you indicted by information or grand jury (criminally charged) or not.
Q. I am Ukrainian citizen living in the USA as a student and I want to open an online business how should I pay taxes.
A: Regardless of your immigration status, you must pay taxes.
Q. do you go to jail of the arraignment date for a gun charge?
A: No. Arraignment is just a formal procedure to present criminal charges on the record in court requiring the defendant to verbally plea. (State on the record whether the defendant pleas guilty or not guilty, essentially). Naturally, all other collateral aspects of the defendant's appearance, whether to set a bond, and its terms and conditions are addressed either prior to that or, on the motion by the defense, if the defendant wants to be released on bail pending the criminal case. Be as it may, it is advisable to discuss the case with an experienced criminal defense attorney directly.
