If you’ve been charged with a misdemeanor, you may be released after booking and given a future court date. Otherwise, you will be jailed until bailed out, or your Summit Defense Attorneys can arrange an “O.R.” (own recognizance) release.
When you are arrested, the police are required to tell you about your rights. These include your right to silence, and your right to a lawyer. These rights are important and you should take full advantage of them. If in custody, it is important to refrain from discussing anything about your case with anybody other than your attorney during a confidential visit. While in the jail, you have no expectation of privacy. Phone calls and letters are monitored and other inmates are often “snitches”.
If arrested, it is important to remember that an arrest is only an accusation, not a conviction. Often people feel discouraged or even hopeless after going through the drama and humiliation of an arrest. Whatever your circumstances, assume nothing until we’ve evaluated your case. Many Summit Defense clients are arrested before retaining us. These people often tell us that the arrest was their lowest point, but they always feel better after we’ve worked together and created a plan.
I strongly recommend the Summit Team and especially Rabin and Tennille. You can truly depend on them. Give them time to work on your case. Summit Defense will fight for you in the court.
Tennille Duffy was exceptional. She worked very hard and in a timely manner. She answered all my calls swiftly. She interviewed the key witnesses to obtain crucial evidence. She kept us informed during the investigation and took care of the case professionally! Because of her exceptional work, the charge was dismissed even before the court hearing. The truth had finally prevailed. We are thrilled that our family member can finally move on from the nightmare of their wrongful accusation, and they were saved from having their life ruined forever.
We first met Rabin Nabizadeh in his office. He was very straightforward and honest with us. He didn't have any hidden fees or charges and everything was clearly explained! He organized a great team with an experienced lawyer, Tennille Duffy, to handle this sensitive case, assisted by another lawyer, Ryan McHugh, who knew the local district very well. In addition, the private investigator, a former policeman, was appointed as an investigator for the case.
From my heart and soul I knew that our family member was innocent. To prove this, we would need witness's testimonies as well as other solid evidence. Thorough investigations were crucial to win the case.
Our family member was falsely accused of a very serious charge. We hired Summit Defense after searching several law firms and interviewing many lawyers. Most of the law firms we looked into had only one or two lawyers working in various law fields. We decided on Summit Defense Attorney because it was exclusively a criminal defense firm; most importantly, it has been collaborating with former prosecutors, police officers, and hearing officers in many cases, and it had more lawyers who collaborated as a team.
Echoing all the other positive reviews here, this is truly the best defense firm around the area. I was in a tricky situation awhile back and am extremely grateful to have found the folks here. The attorney I worked with was extremely professional and reliable, and he truly went above and beyond to help me. I don't think I would have have gotten to where I am now without his help. As a firm, all the attorneys are all very experienced (e.g., familiar with the local dynamics, years spent in the courtrooms) and will always fight for you. Without a doubt, I would recommend Summit Defense to anyone who is looking for an attorney and trust the people here to do an exceptional job.
