Why It Is Critical To Write Out Everything You Can Remember About Your Arrest

Posted Monday, October 2, 2017 by Lizanne Padula.

Criminal cases are often won or lost on details. For example, the right detail about the events leading up to an arrest may be crucial to the case, may even lead to the case being dismissed. If you were arrested, it is critical that you write out everything you can remember about your arrest. And we really mean everything. We want every detail you can recall, even if it seems trivial to you – it may very well be the fact that gets your criminal charges dropped.

Write Out Everything You Can Remember About the Arrest

As soon as possible after arrest, take the time to sit down and write out everything you can remember about the arrest and investigation. If you recall more details later, go back and add them to your account.

Why It Is Critical To Write Out Everything You Can Remember About Your Arrest?

The arresting Officer has written a report that he/she can use to refresh his/her memory down the line. You should have the same benefit of a written account you can later reference to refresh your memory.

Moreover, after we get the arresting Officer’s report, we will sit down together and go through all the details of your case. Your account will greatly assist our efforts to fight the Officer’s accusations.

We will also conduct our own investigation. We will gather evidence in your favor, poke holes in the Officer’s account, and dismantle the prosecution’s case against you. Our goal is to mount a strong defense based on a solid legal strategy designed specifically for your case.
