What To Do After An Arrest
Do not talk to the police. You have the right to remain silent. If you are arrested, it is critical that you exercise that right. There is only one thing you should say during an encounter with police: “I want to speak to an attorney.” Even if the police threaten to arrest you if you do not talk, simply say that you understand they are just doing their job, but you want to speak to an attorney.
As soon as you can, contact an attorney at the Law Offices of Q. Lynn Johnson, PLLC, in Dallas. You will find a ready and capable advocate on your side.

Remain silent. The police will ask you questions. They are experts at convincing people like you to just “tell your side of the story.” That is police code for “confess.” Be aware that they are not interested in helping you clear your name so you can go back home. They are looking for evidence against you. All too often, people accused of crimes give information to the police that is used against them. Do not give it to them.
Not talking to police and contacting a criminal defense lawyer are the first steps to getting through a criminal matter in the best possible position. Your attorney will work closely with you to pursue the best outcome attainable in your case.
