Meeting with a Manhattan criminal defense attorney for the first time can be a terrifying ordeal, whether you committed a crime or not.
Typically, the attorney will first try to learn as much information about you as possible. Who are you? Where are you from? If you're representing a loved one, what is your relationship to the potential client?
After learning your background, the attorney will then learn more about your current situation. Have you been arrested? Are you out on bond? What are you being charged with?
Finally, the attorney will ask about your upcoming court dates and additional information about your case.
