Helping Clients Navigate the Criminal Justice System

If you or someone you love has been arrested and charged with a crime, you should not waste any time. The post-arrest process moves quickly and does not wait for you to prepare. It cannot be overstated how important it is that you retain the services of an attorney who is trusted and proven. Attorney Cherella at our firm is a former prosecutor who understands the law from both sides of the court. We know the criminal justice system inside and out and we are ready to guide you through it.

The main steps of the process after an arrest are as follows:

  • Arraignment
  • Preliminary hearing
  • Grand jury indictment
  • Discovery
  • Plea negotiations
  • Motions
  • Trial

We Are Available to Protect Clients 24/7

Law enforcement may or may not be willing or able to answer your questions or provide you with truthful information. Ask to speak to an attorney as soon as possible and consider staying silent, as this is your right. With more than 20 years of experience, we are more than qualified to represent you during this difficult time.

Contact our firm today at (414) 882-8382 - we are available 24/7 to speak with you.
