Stopped by law enforcement in the middle of the day for a traffic violation? Law enforcement is at your house late at night? The IRS special investigation unit has subpoenaed your bank accounts?
Make no mistake about it, you are at the center of a criminal investigation. If you are pulled over for any reason you are the subject of an investigation. Law enforcement is good at their job and they expand their investigation quickly, without you even knowing what is going on.
You need to know your rights. You have an absolute right to remain silent… And you SHOULD! Regardless if you believe you have done nothing wrong you cannot talk your way out of it. Your words can and will be used against you.
Whether you hire me, or another attorney, the simple fact is you need legal counsel. Law enforcement is trained to ferret out crime, sometime when there has been no crime committed; you need someone to advocate for you. Solid attorneys know how law enforcement and prosecutors work. I can guide you through the process and reduce your exposure to criminal liability.
You may be good at your job–you may be brilliant–but law enforcement is amazing at their job. That is all they do. Do not go it alone. You may think you can change law enforcement’s position on your own, but all you do is provide them more evidence to use against you.
Don’t say anything, demand to speak to an attorney and make the call.
