Lawyers to protect people suspected of involvement in criminal activity.
Pre-Arrest Legal Representation
If you know an arrest is possible, you need to call a defense lawyer.If you are under surveillance, have been questioned by police, or have an outstanding warrant you need a defense lawyer to stand between you and the system. We can speak with the police on your behalf, protect you from mistakes that help police, and generally prepare to handle whatever charges they threaten to put on you. A conversation with your lawyer is completely confidential.
DO NOT TALK TO THE POLICE about any criminal matter, even if you are innocent, think you can mislead police, or the police seem like they are just asking friendly questions. Everything you say can be used against you. Call our law firm at 678-880-9360.
Take the Matter Seriously
If the police are asking you questions, they think you are involved in criminal activity. Sometimes simply knowing the wrong people, being in the wrong place at the wrong time, or trying to help somebody can be cause to arrest you. If you are under surveillance or asked to have an interview with police you need to know that it is a serious matter.
Ignoring the situation will not make it go away. Trying to communicate with other people can become evidence for the police - a phone tap, messages found on your phone, conversations recorded, photos of you with the wrong people, are all things that can incriminate you. Speaking with a lawyer can help you avoid mistakes and plan how to handle the situation.
A Pre-Arrest Situation Is Spooky
The arrest process begins with law enforcement knowing, or having reasons to believe, you are guilty of criminal conduct. This suspicion typically leads to police coming to your home, work, or inviting you to come to the police station to answer a few questions. What you see as simple questions are really probes to get you to help them gather information to start the arrest process. If you find yourself in the position of being questioned, even casually, you need to end the conversation and call a lawyer right away.
What Steps Can a Lawyer Take For You?
When you hire a lawyer, you can speak openly with complete confidence that the conversation is confidential. Your lawyer is not obligated to provide information to the police. Being totally honest with your lawyer may be uncomfortable, but your attorney can provide the best representatioon when they have a full command of the situation. In fact, when they know the truth it is easy for them to determine when the police are lying, bluffing, or trying to play games.
It is often possible to acquire enough information from investigators, witnesses, and associates to build a strong case to counter whatever the police may create to arrest you. In these situations you need a trusted and smart partner - that partner is your defense lawyer.
