Facing criminal charges is one of the most frightening things that can happen in a person’s life. If you find yourself in this position, you must contact an experienced attorney. You have rights, even if you were involved in a crime. A criminal defense attorney will help you protect those rights and ensure that you are treated as you should be during this time.
You should never speak to law enforcement without an attorney present. Even if you are innocent of committing any crimes, law enforcement can take what you say and use it against you. Never assume things will be fine just because you did nothing wrong. You need to contact an attorney the moment you believe you are under investigation or you have been contacted by law enforcement.
Even if you have made a mistake, it is important to work with a criminal defense attorney before speaking to law enforcement. In many cases, a plea deal can be arranged that lessens the penalties associated with the charges you face. An attorney can negotiate a plea deal on your behalf.
