Remain calm and be polite and silent. It is never a good idea to try to resist an arrest or to try to talk your way out of the arrest. Even if the police make it seem like they are giving you a chance to explain your side of the story, you can say something that might hurt your case. Call a lawyer to discuss what is happening before you answer any police questions.
Yes. Technically, you are allowed to defend yourself. Choosing to defend yourself is risky though. You most likely do not have a full understanding of the criminal justice system. An experienced criminal defense lawyer will not only understand the law, but will also understand the criminal process. To get the best possible outcome, it is always best to get help from a lawyer with substantial experience handling criminal matters.

Accepting a plea bargain is a decision that should never be made lightly. An experienced criminal defense lawyer will help you understand whether the plea being offered is a good deal so that you can make an informed decision about whether to risk trial.
