If you have been arrested, it is common to feel overwhelmed and alone. But it is critical to understand that you have rights and are entitled to representation. 

The criminal defense attorney’s process begins at the arraignment which is the initial court appearance during which you are formally charged with a crime and bail is potentially set. Jennifer’s first goal is to get you released from the system and begin to prepare your defense. She will work closely with you so that you fully understand your rights and the process you will be going through.

Once the initial meetings have taken place and Jennifer has an understanding of your case, she will work closely with you to move through the most critical aspects of your defense strategy.  She begins with the investigation and gathering a complete understanding of all of the facts in the case, collecting evidence and reviewing police reports. During this process, Jennifer will get an in-depth statement from you and any witnesses as well as any victims in the case. She will also review your case for any judicial errors that may have been made along the way. She will prepare and file all legal documents and motions on your behalf and then discuss all possible defense strategies with you.

While this is a very tricky and complicated process, it is also one that Jennifer Mills Peek is skilled at and she has the record to prove it.
