Being convicted of a crime may have severe consequences. It is important for anyone to immediately contact an attorney if they are charged with a crime to ensure their rights are protected from the very beginning of their case. The police know it is difficult to obtain incriminating evidence against a suspect once a lawyer is involved, so they will do what they can to get it early. Never speak to law enforcement without a lawyer present. The Constitution of the United States gives you the right to remain silent. If you are being questioned, tell the police that you wish to invoke that right and to speak with a criminal defense attorney.
