If you’re about to be arrested in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, or Staten Island, you need an arrest lawyer in New York City.
Scenario: You find a business card on the floor. Someone slid it under your front door in Manhattan. Printed on the front are NYPD, a detective’s name, and a phone number. Handwritten on the back: “Important. Please call.” If you don’t call a New York City arrest lawyer immediately, you will have waited too long.
A few days later, someone calls you. The caller’s ID is blocked. You answer the phone. It’s the detective from the business card. He wants you to come down to the station, to talk. “When’s a good time?” he asks, adding, “I’m free this afternoon.”
What should you do?
Simple. Since you already threw away his business card, write down the detective’s name and telephone number. Then say, “My lawyer will contact you.” Say this even if you don’t have a New York City arrest lawyer yet.
Say absolutely nothing else. Not even “Goodbye.” Hang up the phone. Then, immediately contact an arrest lawyer in New York City, preferably the best criminal defense attorney in NYC you can find.
And next time, contact a New York City arrest lawyer as soon as you pick up the detective’s business card from your floor. Don’t wait until you get the phone call.
