This type of experience is needed to deal with the maze of laws and other technicalities that can affect the outcome of an individual’s case.

Judith Samson has a reputation for being aggressive, yet compassionate toward clients. With 10 years of legal experience, she knows that it is important to explain the charges to the client, set realistic expectations, create defense strategies, and ensure that constitutional rights are protected.

When You Are Charged

When you are charged with a crime and arrested on those charges, it is important to contact a criminal attorney St. Paul residents trust to handle their criminal defense. After arrest, you are entitled to a telephone call and this call is best placed to your attorney so that you can be advised on what you should do and what you shouldn’t do. When read your Miranda Rights, you are told that anything you say can and will be used against you. It is best to talk to no one but your attorney in confidence so that the case against you does not become more complex and not necessarily in your favor.

Your attorney will work with you to establish bail so that you can be back with your family and back to normal life. Although you do have the burden of being charged with a crime, you can at least go back to normal activities to reduce the stress. Once it is time to appear in court, you can expect to not be alone. Not being alone is very important for your well-being and for the legal aspect of your case.
