What to Do If You Are Arrested in New York

If you have been arrested, the best thing you can do is wait until you can contact Lisa Pelosi, your dedicated criminal defense attorney. That said, the following seven points outline some of the most important things you can do to protect your rights.

1. Always ask for your lawyer and await further instruction from Lisa (917) 670-7063.

2. If you are contacted by a detective, contact your lawyer and say nothing. They may encourage you to take the opportunity to tell them your side of the story, but you risk compromising your case and giving them evidence to use against you.

3. Even if you are not contacted by a detective, the police may ask you to give them a statement after you have been arrested. The police will often say things like:

  • Why not provide a statement if you aren’t guilty?
  • If you confess now, you may get a lighter, more favorable sentence in court.
  • However, under no circumstances should you say anything about your arrest or the situation leading up to it, even if you believe that saying something will help your case. The best thing you can do is wait for further instruction from your lawyer.

4. Never sign a Miranda card that waives your right to remain silent or your right to have a lawyer present — your Miranda right to protect you from questioning that could incriminate you and compromise your case.

5. If you are asked to make a video with the police and/or prosecutor, you should deny the request and await further instruction from your lawyer.
• In fact, the only information you should give them is your name and the statement that you would like to speak with your lawyer.

6. Once you have been released, it is imperative that you schedule an appointment with an experienced criminal defense lawyer like Lisa Pelosi (917) 670-7063. Lisa is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week and will work closely with you to help you understand your options and create a defense strategy that keeps your best interests in mind.
