Many people that get arrested or are under criminal investigation and fail to retain an experienced criminal defense attorney immediately.  That is a very big mistake that could lead to very serious consequences down the road such as incarceration, having a criminal conviction, being placed on probation and/or parole, being deported, loss of the right to vote, employment, the right to carry a firearm, etc.

Call attorney Michael A. Arbeit immediately.
