My Friend Was Arrested - What Now?

What can you do when a friend or relative is arrested? How long will he or she spend in jail? Will you need a bail bond?

First, you need to remain calm. Second, invest in a qualified criminal defense attorney. Third, get answers so you can make informed decisions.

An immediate call to Michael A. Gottlieb, P.A., at 954-462-1005 will allow our team to quickly prepare for an initial hearing and immediately look for defenses.

Our team of skilled lawyers has more than 25 years of criminal defense experience helping families in Fort Lauderdale, Broward County and across Florida. We also handle cases in federal court and have helped clients across the country.

Relieving Your Stress And Anxiety

Once you meet with us, we will take over. Our first step will be to get a court hearing to discuss bail and release conditions.  These conditions usually deal with issues regarding flight from prosecution and danger to the community. Our office will help tailor arguments to ensure the best bond results. Often this can happen as soon as the next business day.

After your loved one is out of jail, we will turn our focus to developing a solid legal defense strategy. We will sit down with you to answer your questions so you know what to expect and are comfortable with the process moving forward.

Because each case is different, we want to hear what happened and then we will conduct our own investigation into the facts of your case. We have been successful at identifying defenses and will strive to get the charges dismissed.
