The moment you are aware that the police have targeted you as a suspect or “person of interest” related to a criminal case, hiring a lawyer immediately is crucial. Many people make the mistake of assuming the police just have a few questions and they can go in and “clear it up”. Let me be perfectly clear: there is NO possible good outcome from you speaking to the police, especially without a lawyer. If you have been asked to speak with the police or report to your local precinct to answer questions, contact my office immediately. We will prepare for the interview and I will protect you from answering any questions that may advance the police’s case against you.
Having a member of your family arrested and jailed happens suddenly and typically with very little information. I can help you detangle the questions you likely have:
We help you get the answers you need. Do not wait to hear back from law enforcement, it can be weeks or even months. Contact my office today.
For some offenses, you will be ticketed, given a court date and released. I have seen people’s situation go from manageable to completely terrible based on missing their court date(s). As soon as you have a court date, contact my office so that I can arrange to be there. If you are unable to secure an attorney before your court date, it is still critical that you show up. Missing a court date can become a crime itself, and can lead to a warrant being issued for your arrest.
