Offering Investigation Help

Offering Investigation Help (before being arrested / preventing arrest / questioning)

*You have the right to remain silent. USE IT! *
While defendants with significant experience in the criminal court system often understand they will not help themselves by talking to law enforcement, experienced New York City criminal defense attorneys are always amazed at the number of people who fail to exercise this most basic right of the American criminal justice system.
You will not talk your way out of trouble. Law enforcement officers and investigators are focused on one thing: Gathering evidence of your guilt. In many cases, they will deceive you about the evidence they already have, lie to you about possible penalties or eye witnesses; tell you that you may face lesser charges for cooperating even though charging decisions are out of their hands, and otherwise use any number of other questionable tactics to gather evidence to use against you in a court of law.
Of course when you get around to contacting a New York City defense attorney, he or she will do everything possible to challenge such tactics. But in many cases law enforcement stays inside the legally permissible boundaries and in every case it is much more difficult to get your statements suppressed than it would have been to defend you had you exercised your right to remain silent. Even if you believe you are not telling law enforcement anything that is incriminating, statements you make may conflict with possible legal defenses your attorney would have otherwise been able to use on your behalf!
It is never too soon to seek professional legal help. In fact, the best time to reach out to an experienced criminal defense firm in New York City is as soon as you think you are under investigation - even if no criminal charges have been filed. In some cases, an experienced law firm may even be able to prevent charges from being filed. In other cases, having a lawyer at the outset may prevent the state from filing more serious criminal charges.
It’s important to remember that in many cases, if law enforcement is talking to you it means they do not yet have enough evidence to charge and arrest you. They are hoping you will help them out!
Let an experienced lawyer decide, if, when, and under what circumstances you will talk to investigators. In some cases, this may even allow your attorney to strike a deal that would be otherwise unavailable - and certainly will not be available if you tell them everything they want to know for free, and without experienced legal help.
