If you’re under investigation for a crime, we can help. Here’s how you should respond to police questioning in the meantime.
If you’re under investigation or suspected of a crime, big or small, chances are the cops will try to get you to talk. It makes their job easier if you simply own up to the alleged crime than if you say nothing at all. Whether it’s a visit to your front door or a call from a detective, what will you do if police want to ask you questions?
Some people who don't know any better think they will earn leniency by coughing up information. The problem is that for the most part, cops can legally use deceitful tactics to elicit incriminating information. Whatever you tell the police will end up on a police report narrative, which the prosecutor will use to prove up your case.
A good approach is to say nothing or just say "I have nothing to say." It might be easier said than done though, especially when you’re under coercion to talk
The best approach is to hire an experienced criminal defense attorney to run interference, figuratively speaking. They can talk to the police for you and discover what you're up against by doing so
If you hire the award-winning Coimbra Law Firm, we will issue a formal, legal representation letter that states you are invoking your Fifth Amendment right to remain silent. We will also inquire about the nature of the charges against you and begin to challenge any evidence that ties you to the crime. This sort of early intervention can be extremely effective in defeating charges early on, or at least getting a favorable outcome in court.
