Consult A Criminal Defense Attorney Before You Talk To The Police
Contacting a lawyer as soon as you’re concerned about possible criminal exposure can often be the most effective way to protect yourself. Even before formal charges are filed against you, the advice of an experienced attorney can go far in protecting your interests, and even keep the most serious potential charges off the table. Working with a lawyer early in the process may even keep you from being charged with a crime at all.
In any event, the less you have to say to the police or sheriff’s office, the better off you’ll likely be. Even if you had nothing to do with an alleged offense, resourceful investigators and prosecutors can even turn innocent statements to your disadvantage.
Examples of the particular criminal charges our law firm can protect you against include:
- Violent crimes, including homicide, assault and weapons offenses
- Sex crimes such as rape or sexual assault
- Drug crimes involving possession, manufacture or trafficking
- Fraud crimes such as embezzlement or identity theft
- Domestic violence, including violations of protective orders or no-contact orders under Chapter 50B or 50C
- DWI defense on behalf of local or out-of-state clients
- Speeding tickets, traffic violations and driver’s license suspension problems
