You've Been Arrested: Now What? (A Real Life Legal Guide) by Maryam Jahedi Esq.

If you’ve had a brush with the criminal justice system, know someone who has, or just want to be better informed, this simple guide lets you know what you can expect. Whether you know it or not, from the minute you are approached by police or law enforcement and through searches, Miranda warnings, booking, arraignment, trial and beyond, you have rights!

Written by an attorney with extensive experience as a criminal lawyer in New York City, this Real Life Legal™ guide offers valuable insights to help you each step of the way. If you don’t know your rights or how the system really works, your entire future can be at risk.

After reading this book, you’ll understand why it’s essential to get a criminal lawyer from the very beginning. Do you know:

• When it’s legal to have your home searched?
• What your rights are with a “stop and frisk”?
• Why it matters if you’re placed under arrest or not?
• Why it’s so important to exercise your Miranda right to remain silent?
This Real Life Legal™ guide also includes special in-depth coverage on domestic violence, drunk driving (DWI or DUI), non-citizen arrests and youthful offenders.

We cover all that here. And make it easy to understand.

Real Life Legal™ wants you to be prepared.
