Frequently Asked Questions

  • Will I go to jail if I was arrested?


    No, not necessarily. Although each county may have slightly different booking processes, you may be placed in a holding cell until you have been read your official charges during your arraignment (first hearing before a judge). A jail or prison sentence can only be brought if you have been found guilty and convicted, or if you have plead to a lesser charge with a jail sentence involved.

  • If I’m not guilty, why do I need a lawyer?


    At Diamond & Associates, we always assume our clients to be innocent until proven guilty, and we will always represent them as such. Even if you know that you are not guilty, you will be facing off against highly trained Prosecutors and District Attorneys. It is their primary motivation to utilize the State’s resources to obtain a conviction and penalize you accordingly.

  • How are misdemeanors & felonies different?


    Criminal offenses can be categorized in multiple ways, and this includes misdemeanor charges and felony charges. Misdemeanor offenses are typically considered to be lesser offenses, and typically result in a jail time sentence of less than 1 year. On the other hand, felonies are much more severe and can carry a lengthy prison sentence of 1 year or more.

  • What are my rights after an arrest?


    We believe that knowledge can be the strongest defense. If you have been arrested, know that you have the right to remain silent and you have the right to request an attorney. Both of these things (also known as your Miranda Rights) ultimately protect your 5th Amendment Right to avoid self-incrimination.
