A Forsyth County criminal defense attorney can assist you with a variety of criminal charges. If you are contacted by a detective about a case, you should always speak with an attorney prior to making any statements. Even your initial statements over the phone can be used against you so we encourage prospective clients to communicate as little as possible with the police before speaking with us.
It is best to hire an attorney early in the process, but most arrests are made without prior warning. If you find yourself in jail, the first thing that needs to be addressed is bond. Essentially, how quickly can you get back to your work, family and friends so that you can have the financial means to adequately defend yourself.
In Forsyth County, a magistrate judge sets bond on all offenses except the most serious criminal charges. The most serious charges are only bondable by a superior court judge which means you will have to wait a little longer before an appropriate judge reviews your case. At your first appearance, the magistrate judge will just inform you of the charges and tell you that a superior court judge will review your case at a later date. You should contact a Forsyth County criminal defense lawyer quickly to ensure you are placed on the next available bond calendar and do not waste precious days sitting in jail.

A Forsyth County criminal defense lawyer can get you the most favorable resolution in your case. Not every case goes to trial, but you need to at least explore the possibility when developing your defense strategy. Having a strong defense increases your leverage in plea negotiations and can help avoid the risk of trial entirely. Strong mitigation also helps and can include making amends for any perceived wrongdoing or proactively seeking treatment for any underlying issue that may have resulted in the criminal charges.
An arrest is just the first step in a criminal prosecution. An arrest does not have to be permanent and certainly does not have to define you. Choosing the right attorney can set you on a path to potentially protecting your criminal record and possibly having the arrest removed from your background. The potential outcome will depend on your criminal history and the specifics of the current allegations. Still, you cannot go wrong with hiring an experienced Forsyth County criminal defense attorney. Contact us today to schedule your free consultation.
