Work With a Harrisburg Criminal Defense Attorney

Have you been arrested for a crime? Not many people realize that the moment they are arrested, their future is in jeopardy. Without a trusted attorney, you could be facing jail or prison time, fines and restitution. It is highly important that you contact Crisp and Associates, LLC as soon as possible. Residents of Harrisburg who have been accused of a crime can rely on our more than 30 years of combined legal experience to ensure that their case is effectively handled. After an arrest, we will guide you throughout the legal process and assist you in obtaining the best possible resolution for your case.

Exercise your rights!

One of the most important things that you can do for yourself is exercise your rights. Any person who is arrested must be read their Miranda rights. Our firm highly recommends exercising these rights – especially the right to legal counsel – because doing so could be the difference between life behind bars and life as a free citizen. If your rights were not read to you after an arrest, our firm can use this to your advantage and create an aggressive defense on your behalf. During an arrest and criminal charge, you have the right to:

Remain Silent
A portion of a police officer’s job is to get you to admit to something that you may or may not have done. They will try their hardest to interrogate you and convince you to allow them to search you or your property. If an officer is asking you any questions, it is important that you politely respond that you do not wish to speak with them unless you have an attorney present. Even if you have already begun to answer questions, you can stop at any time and ask to speak with a lawyer before engaging any further.

Right to an Attorney
One of the most important things to remember is that you have the right to an attorney. Your attorney can be present with you during any questioning or interrogation. If you are unable to afford an attorney, one known as a public defender will be assigned to you. The moment you are arrested, you need to act quickly and speak with a lawyer from our firm.
