Do you feel like you are being watched or investigated by the police? Has a police officer contacted you to ask questions about an incident, perhaps even making it appear that someone else is the subject of the investigation? If so, it is likely that the officer is building a case against you and may eventually charge you with a crime. The most important thing to know during this investigation stage is that you should not speak to the police without an attorney. If you do, you could be helping the police make their case against you! By having a lawyer represent you when you talk to the police, you might be saving your future, your family, and your job. Do not let the police or the government trick you into putting yourself in jail for life.
Unfortunately, these situations are common. The police will not play by all of the rules when they talk to you before you are charged if you do not have an attorney representing you. Make sure that your rights are protected and your statement is not misused or misconstrued by law enforcement.
The biggest mistake most people make when they suspect they are being investigated is not calling a criminal defense lawyer.
