I was feeling pretty lost after my car accident. I’d never been involved in a personal injury case before and dealing with the insurance companies is no picnic. I called Beahm Law and they told me not to worry and they’d take care of everything so I could focus on getting better.

Get Your Questions Answered

How long will this take?

Anywhere from 45 days to about a year. Average is about 4 months, but depends greatly on the jurisdiction.

What is an arraignment?

An arraignment is the beginning of the criminal procedure, after an arrest,that occurs in a courtroom in front of a judge or magistrate. The purpose is to provide the accused with a reading of the crime with which he or she has been charged. The accused is also given the option at the arraignment to either proceed with a speedy trial, or waive that right. In most cases, our clients choose to waive the speedy trial right, thought it is always decided on a case by case basis.

In practice, the arraignment and the reading of the charges are typically waived by the attorney and the arraignment is treated as more of a procedural matter.

Do I have to be at the arraignment?

For most traffic infractions and misdemeanors, we can appear on your behalf without you being present. Even if you are not required to be present, it is always important to be available by phone at the time of your hearing, in case we need to reach you. For felony cases, you must typically be present for all court dates.
