Under Investigation? What You Need to Know

In my experience, I have seen a lot of cases go bad when people are “just under
investigation” by law enforcement.  What you think is a simple conversation with the
police can turn into a nightmare very quickly.  While you might believe that you are
better off not being represented by an attorney because it will make you “look
guilty,” this is a terrible mistake to make.  If the police are interested in
talking to you, you can presume they have already spoken with the prosecutor’s
office and are working to build a case.  From your first instance of contact with
the police, it is critical to have an attorney on your side who can protect your
rights and help you make proper legal decisions.  Working with the right criminal
defense attorney can often lead to no criminal charges being filed or even pursued
against you.
