What should I do now?

If you’ve been arrested or have come into a situation where you immediately require a criminal defence lawyer, it is crucial you remain silent until you have secured legal representation. Anything you say can be used against you in court and your best chance at building a good case is to speak with a lawyer before you talk to the police.

After your arrest, here are some steps you can take:

  1. Take photos of anything related to the alleged crime.
  2. Save all text messages, emails, Facebook messages, videos, or statements from the complainant.
  3. Write down what happened. If this is a crime involving violence, assault, or a sexual allegation, write down all past incidents that happened against you.
  4. Do not respond to any messages from the complainant.
  5. Do not share information with your family and friends or other inmates related to your arrest.
  6. Send all proof of communication and pictures to your lawyer or save it in a cloud drive to ensure that it won’t get lost.
