Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
Hi - my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm a Criminal Law litigation attorney here to assist you.
If you have received a summons or some notice to appear, you definitely need to do so. If you're not sure whether or not the notice is legitimate, I would recommend that you contact the court first thing in the morning and ask if you need to appear.
If you weren't properly notified to be there, you can still claim improper notice even if you appear.
The last thing you want to do is fail to appear and end up with more trouble tan you began with.
