For someone who has never had legal issues before, getting arrested can be a traumatizing experience. You may have seen people get arrested, but never experienced it personally. Rather than being greeted and welcomed by Winter Springs law enforcement like the average citizen would, you are confronted aggressively. The officer has you turn around and place your hands behind your back as he clanks on those cold metal cuffs and guides you to the backseat of the squad car. As you are being transported to the local precinct, you ask yourself “How did this all happen?” One moment you were freely living life, and the next you’re being handled like a convicted prisoner. It is vital you know that you do have legal experts ready to go to work on your behalf.

This is commonly referred to as the First Appearance. The judge will decide if the arresting officer had probable cause to make the arrest and if you are eligible for release. It is vital that you have secured an attorney before this hearing so that he or she can start negotiations with the prosecution. If the First Appearance has already passed, you still have time to secure an attorney before your day in court.
