Understanding your legal rights
- Do not talk with anyone from Law Enforcement. Not answering a police officer’s questions is your Constitutional right.
- Do not agree to any search, or turn over anything to Law Enforcement.
- Do not talk about your case with your family, friends, or anyone in jail. What you tell them can, and probably will be used against you.
- Do not represent yourself. The Prosecutor on your case is a very experienced attorney who knows the law better than you do.
- Do not go to court without first talking to an attorney who specializes in criminal law.
- Talk with your attorney and tell the attorney everything about your case. What you tell your attorney is confidential and cannot be used against you.
- Identify and find any possible witnesses that may have information which is favorable to you.
- Do not sign anything without talking to your lawyer.
- DO NOT PLEAD GUILTY, without first speaking with your lawyer!
- Before your court date, come into our office for your initial confidential consultation.
