Knowledge and Experience. When You Need it Most.
When you find yourself in trouble, a criminal lawyer from our office will provide an initial consultation. There is no obligation to give a statement if you are in custody. Contact one of our legal experts first. It is most important that you remain silent and obtain legal counsel to avoid further possible problems.
We are dedicated to being there when you need us most, even if that is in the middle of the night. Our criminal defence lawyers work to take the stress out of your difficult situation and help you find solutions that protect yourself and your rights.
You Have the Right to Remain Silent – Use It! Do Not Give Up Your Rights!
If you have been charged or are under investigation, contact us immediately; do not communicate with the police without advice from your lawyer. You have the right to remain silent and the right to consult counsel, whether you are being detained or charged with an offence. You are under NO obligation to give a statement prior to consulting with legal counsel.
It is crucial that you receive prompt, knowledgeable and applicable advice. We are available to provide the 24-hour service that you require.
What You Say Can Damage Your Case
You will need to give the police some basic information such as your name, address and date of birth. Beyond that, you do not have to say anything. In fact, you should not say anything else. If you do so, you run the risk of incriminating yourself. Admitting fault or anything that could be construed as admitting fault is evidence against you. What you say can be extremely damaging. It is better to say nothing at all until you understand your legal rights.
