All of my clients have direct cell phone access to me at all times, as should be the case when someone is facing serious criminal charges, like a DUI. My firm is not a crowded factory, and I do not take on hundreds of cases at a time.

The penalties for Washington County drug convictions are some of the toughest in the nation. Punishment for a drug crime in Oklahoma varies widely from a misdemeanor conviction to mandatory life in prison without the possibility of parole, depending on the severity of the offense. Unfortunately, only a few drug charges are considered misdemeanors in Oklahoma, including simple possession, possession of drug paraphernalia, and inhaling intoxicants. The majority of drug charges in the state are considered felony offenses, including (but not limited to) possession with intent to distribute, and drug trafficking.

Things to keep in mind if you are being investigated for a crime or have been arrested:
Immediately speak with an attorney regarding the situation and retain them if necessary. Ideally, this would be prior to making any statements to law enforcement. Always be polite and courteous with any law enforcement officer. It is important not to make any sudden movements and always keep your hands in sight. Do not interfere with the police or resist/touch an officer. Officers can misinterpret even innocent actions of this nature, and because of the dangers inherent to their job are forced to take precautionary, even deadly measures. Tense situations are always handled best by remaining calm and collected. Always ask if you are under arrest, and do not give a voluntary statement without speaking to an attorney. Most of us can recite the Miranda warnings by heart, or at least the beginning. While the Miranda warning informs you of your rights post-arrest, a voluntary statement made prior to arrest can still be used against you. Never discuss crimes you are being investigated for, or have been charged with anyone except your lawyer. Always be truthful with your attorney. Your attorney is your advocate and works for you.
Confidential criminal defense communications
The attorney-client privilege protects certain communications between a client and his or her lawyer. It exists to assure clients that the information they share with their attorney is confidential, and that their attorney cannot use that information to testify against them. This rule allows clients and potential clients the full confidence in the confidentiality of their conversations with their attorney. Attorneys need to know the entire story to adequately give advice and defend their clients or assess a case. This rule applies to clients and persons seeking to become clients.
