What to Do 
After An Arrest?  

I’ve Been Arrested. What Now?

Modesto Criminal Defense Lawyers

Facing criminal charges is not easy. An arrest can lead to unimaginable stress, anxiety, and social stigma for both you and your family. Added to this is the uncertainty over your future, especially when an arrest leads to the loss of your job, loved ones, and reputation.

To protect your future, our Modesto defense lawyer at the Law Offices of Mark Girdner is here to fight for your rights in and out of court. Attorney Mark Girdner is a former deputy district attorney who knows the law and can help guide you through the criminal process.

Building a strong defense starts at the moment you are arrested. Contact our firm immediately.

The Best Chance for Your Future

After an arrest, don’t panic. It is easy to let the stress get to you, but all hope is not lost. You have rights and options, especially if this is your first offense. Depending on the nature of your charge and the alleged crime, an arrest doesn’t have to mean a lengthy prison sentence or a permanent loss of your good name.

Contacting our firm is the first step. We offer all clients:

  • The knowledge of a former deputy district attorney
  • Legal guidance at all steps of the criminal process
  • 18 years of experience defending clients
  • Available 24/7 to answer your concerns
  • Bilingual advice in English or Spanish
  • Free no-obligation consultations

If you have been arrested, you are protected under the law. Most importantly, you have the right to retain legal counsel which can help protect you against accidentally incriminating yourself. Having the knowledgeable advice of a skilled defense lawyer on your side can make a big difference after you have been arrested.
