Put The Law On Your Side
There are many ways that a lawyer can help you fight criminal charges. One major way is that with years of experience fighting criminal charges, a lawyer can tell you what not to do. For instance, did you know that you should never speak to the police without a lawyer present?
Often criminal charges do not come from an arrest or a confrontation. Police frequently contact suspects before any charges have been made against them, and they are not required to tell an individual that they are a suspect before questioning them.
Typically, these subjects do not have an attorney and are unaware of their right to remain silent. At this time, an individual would be within his/her right to refuse to answer questions and insist on access to a lawyer. The police are educated in criminal law and procedure, and would know that all questioning must stop.
This approach is often characterized by police as courtesy or politeness but in reality, it is deceptive because it falsely provides the suspect with a sense of trust and comfort that often leads them to talk to police when they have no obligation to do so. The real aim of this tactic is to deprive an individual of rights so that they incriminate themselves with admissible evidence at trial.
An experienced lawyer knows that the police may try to manipulate you, and will make sure it does not happen.
