Talk to Your Lawyer BEFORE You Talk to Police
Effective legal representation begins long before you or a loved one faces formal criminal charges. If you are the subject of an investigation, or have been contacted by the police, it will be crucial to any future defense or resolution to speak with an experienced lawyer. One of the biggest mistakes people can make when they are under investigation for drug sales, or facing serious criminal charges, is that they give interviews and freely talk to the police, thinking that this will help their situation. The difficulty is that they may make incriminating statements without even realizing it. This is why it is so important to retain an attorney early on – even before you may have been charged – if possible.
