WHAT TO DO AFTER AN ARREST
The most important thing to remember when you are accused of a crime is not to speak to law enforcement officers until you have retained a criminal defense lawyer. You can say that you have the right to have an attorney present before making any statement then remain silent. Even if you are innocent, your attorney is in the best position to talk to law enforcement about what occurred. You can provide your name and date of birth, but do not provide other information or answer questions without a lawyer.
Speaking to law enforcement officers without an attorney is a bad idea for the following reasons:
- People often make mistakes when trying to explain the facts of the case
- Mistakes and conflicting information happen in the heat of the moment
- Officers may misunderstand what you say or write it down incorrectly
- An officer may intentionally misconstrue your statements to build the case
- Your statement is primary evidence used by the prosecution
Our defense lawyers will be present during questioning to ensure your rights are protected and minimize the risk of self-incrimination.
WHAT TO EXPECT WITH YOUR CRIMINAL CASE
It is important that you remember the consequences that can accompany a criminal conviction. For any type of criminal matter, it is important to have a skilled, knowledgeable and experienced criminal defense attorney on your side. The stakes are high, and you risk losing your rights, your freedom, and your good name.
