Talk to Your Lawyer, Not the Police

Common questions we hear from potential clients are, "Should I answer the police officer's questions?" and, "Do I need a lawyer for a traffic matter?" Law enforcement officials and prosecutors may try to convince or coerce you into giving a statement with a potentially false promise of favorable treatment. Avoid "hanging yourself." Whatever benefit you get from answering questions without an attorney present is far outweighed by the damage you may do to your case.

Protect your rights. Whether you have received a traffic ticket, are facing white collar criminal charges or have been charged with a violent crime, we are prepared to help. Contact us online, or call 704-376-9376 to schedule an initial consultation to discuss your case.
