Criminal Overview

Being arrested is a terrifying experience.  You lose control of whats going on around you and it can seem like things are simply out of control.  You worry about what will happen to your family and, the worst case, could you end up in jail.  It's important to get an experienced criminal defense attorney once you have been charged with a crime.  There are steps you can take early on in a case to improve outcomes throughout.  

WHAT IF I HAVEN'T BEEN CHARGED YET?

The Commonwealth has told you that you are being investigated or you thnk you may be investigated for something you may not have even done.  Should you wait to be arrested before you get counsel?? Absolutely not!!  In reality, the most valuable time to have an attorney is BEFORE you get charged with a crime.  Attorney Hyde has experience in working with police officers before a case in charged to often time reduce the charges or even find ways to avoid charging.  Additionally, the sooner an attorney is involved the sooner you are protected.  Once you have an attorney you can't be made to talk to the police.  If you have been charged with a crime in Chester, Montgomery or Bucks County or even think you might be.  Call the Law Offices of Ryan L. Hyde for a free consultation to discuss how we can help you.  

I HAVE RECEIVED A COMPLAINT IN THE MAIL!

Most cases in Pennsylvania are charged via mail believe it or not.  You are released the evening of your DUI to get a complaint two weeks later.  You are taken home by the police after they talked to you and they say they "might" be charging.  Once you get the complaint the clock has started ticking.  Your next hearing is a preliminary hearing which is a valuable tool in the criminal justice system.  It's at that stage you first get a chance to challenge the Commonwealth's evidence and build your strategy for attacking the case.  It's important to have an attorney you can trust to fight for you even at this level, it can have a huge impact on how the case is later handled.
