When to Involve an Attorney
At what point should you involve a criminal attorney? Most often our advice in these situation is: “If you think you might need an attorney, you probably do!” The majority of people who contact our firm seeking legal advice are in need of attorney representation. It does not matter whether you have already been arrested and/or charged with a criminal offense, your rights and freedom are in jeopardy from the moment you are accused of a crime and law enforcement becomes involved in any way. Although law enforcement may have simply contacted you for “questioning” or to gather more information about an ongoing investigation, it is important to recognize that this may mean that you are suspect. If law enforcement will not clarify whether you are at risk of being accused of a crime, exercise your right to remain silent and to consult a legal professional.
It certainly will not harm you in any way to consult a criminal defense lawyer to find out if you are in danger of facing criminal charges. At any point in the criminal process, even before charges are filed, an attorney can take action to protect your Constitutional rights. This may go a long way in determining whether you actually end up being formally charged with a crime at all.
