How Can You Protect Yourself Against Criminal Charges?

Finding yourself in the middle of a criminal charge is a highly stressful and painful circumstance. No matter the charge and no matter the circumstances, you have many legal rights that deserve skilled protection. That’s where we come in.

At Rowe & Sitzler, LLP, attorney Emily Rowe Sitzler is a skilled criminal defense lawyer. She defends clients from Bedford against charges that threaten their personal freedom and rights. She will speak with you candidly and clearly about what you face and how you can protect your rights.

Exercise Your Right To Remain Silent

Just because you are faced with a criminal charge does not mean you are guilty, and so the most important thing you can do, is remain silent. Police and prosecutors in Virginia have a job to do, and they are very good at it. However, the more you speak to them, the more they will file away your words to build their case.

No matter what kind of criminal charge you face:

  • Drunk driving
  • Assault
  • Drug charges
  • Theft
  • White collar crimes

The more you speak, the worse off you are. Attorney Emily Rowe Sitzler can take the lead on your case and help you communicate with authorities while protecting your rights.

Understand What Your Options Are

Any criminal charge can come with significant jail time and fines. There are many strategies that you can choose, but the best one for you is entirely your decision. Attorney Sitzler will provide you with a clear set of circumstances, risks and stakes, and then work with you to develop your legal strategy.
