Typically the first time slot for criminal cases is designated for arraignments. If you hire a defense attorney for a criminal misdemeanor, you will likely not have to show up for any initial court dates or arraignments, leaving the pre-trial work to the defense. In instances where you may be required to appear, we can file for a continuance with the clerk’s office when we file a letter of representation for your case.
