The phone rings and the person on the other end is informing you that your son, daughter, friend or loved one has been locked up in Berks County prison. You don’t know if they’ve been charged with a Criminal Offense or what that offense may be. You are scared and concerned for their welfare. You don’t know what to do or where to turn.
The best possible thing you can do for your loved at that point is to retain an attarney as soon as possible.
Our law office regularly receives calls from family members of individuals who have been locked up in Berks County Prison. It is crucial that we get involved right away. We routinely visit our clients in prison, advise them of their rights and begin to devise a defense if they are facing criminal charges. The first couple of days a person is locked up are critically important to a case. Often, a police officer or detective may attempt to elicit a statement or confession from an incarcerated defendant. Without counsel, many defendants will make statements against their interests and damage their cases. At other times, an uncounseled defendant may make incriminating statements to other inmates. Those statements, too, can be used against him.
By retaining our firm to represent your friend or loved one you will ensure that their rights and interests are well protected. We will guide them through the criminal justice process and zealously advocate for the most favorable result. Call our offices to arrange for a no-cost consultation. After speaking with you we may make arrangements to visit your loved in Berks County Prison to begin their defense.
