If You Think You Might Need a Criminal Attorney, Then Hire a Criminal Attorney

It was four in the morning on a weekday. The last thing you had expected before you drifted off to sleep earlier that night is that you would be awoken at this time by a pounding on your door. Scared, you climbed out of bed and groggily slipped on some clothing. Your dog began barking incessantly, and you tripped over a sneaker on the way to the door. The pounding sounded frantic, so you moved a little faster than usual, thinking that something might be wrong with a neighbor or friend. Expecting to receive a familiar face, you were surprised to open the door to blinking blue and red lights and some uniformed officers. Without so much as a chance to let out a yawn, you were placed in handcuffs and escorted to the police cruiser. Was this all part of a horrible dream?
