What Are My Rights When I’m Arrested?

When you’re arrested you have a number of constitutional rights. Now, I don’t want to bore you on this quick video and go into a dense constitutional law lesson, but one of the most important thing is to remain silent.

Typically anything you say isn’t going to help you. If you’ve already been arrested, if they’ve already found drugs on you, if they already determined you’re going to jail there’s nothing you’re going to say that’s going to help you. In many situations people say terrible things, they make mistakes, they admit to things. So, you don’t really want to go there.

You want to be polite, you want to be courteous, the process is happening. The easier you are typically, the better it’s going to be. And certainly there are police officers and prison workers and jail officers that aren’t going to be very friendly; this is jail, it’s not a resort. So, you just want to be courteous as possible, follow directions, and hope someone is going to bail you out or call a lawyer as soon as possible.

    Hear What Our Clients Have To Say

    "This company is one of the most helpful and dutiful law firms in New Orleans. I have met with Seth Bloom multiple times and he has helped with out of several situations I thought had no solution. He made me feel calm, comfortable, and collected. After our first meeting, he established a genuine interest in my position and assured me that he would stand by me. Aside from that, he is one of the most professional lawyers I have dealt with, and I believe his service to be above what people in New Orleans consider to be great service."
