Find out more about how our dedicated attorneys fights for clients at every stage of the case, including before any arrest is made, prior to formal charges being filed, during any emergency bond hearing, during pre-trial status and motion hearings, and at a bench or jury trial. An aggressive approach based on thorough preparation makes a huge difference in obtaining the best results.

Never Talk to Law Enforcement

Once you believe you are suspected of committing a crime, do not speak to any local or federal law enforcement officer until AFTER you obtain an experienced criminal defense attorney. You can invoke your right to remain silent by saying, “I will not make a statement until AFTER I have spoken to an attorney.” Then remain silent. Even if you are innocent of any criminal wrongdoing, your attorney is often in the best position to talk to the law enforcement officer about what occurred.

Many people make the mistake of trying to protest their innocence and explain the situation. While well-intentioned, in the heat of the moment people can make mistakes and give conflicting details, which can be used against them in court. Even more problematic, the officer can intentionally in inadvertently misconstrue the statements. Hiring an attorney before you make any statement can help ensure that your constitutional rights are protected during questioning and minimize the opportunity for self-incrimination. You should take full advantage of your right to remain silent.

When we represent a client at the beginning of a criminal investigation, we work hard to convince the officer not to make an arrest. Even if the law enforcement officer ultimately decides to make the arrest, your attorney can often negotiate the terms of your surrender and handle other details that will minimize the embarrassment, expense and inconvenience of an arrest. By discussing the bond conditions up front, your attorney can often save you money that might otherwise be required for an excessive bond and speed up your release.
