From lengthy jail times, extensive fines and the loss of certain constitutional rights to the threat of irreparable damage to a defendant’s life, both personally and professionally, it’s not difficult to see why seeking a skilled defense attorney immediately following an arrest is not only advised, but in a defendant’s best interests to do so.
