Know when to invoke your right to remain silent

Any criminal charge is one that can have a negative impact on your life. Not only can this effect your personal relationships, but it can also hold you back from reaching your professional goals. We understand that you might not be ready to deal with these types of effects, so it is crucial that you learn about how invoking your rights might help your defense.

In many criminal cases, investigators or law enforcement officers are going to interview the suspect. When these interrogations happen, they might try to make it seem like they are working to do you a favor. That likely isn't the case. If you know that you are being interrogated, such as if you have been read your Miranda rights, it is likely going to be best for you to invoke your right to remain silent.

Your right to remain silent is one that is very important in criminal cases. As you probably know, what you say can be used in the case against you. In some cases, what you say might be misconstrued in the case against you.

We know that you are probably just ready to get things over with when it comes to being interrogated. Still, it is almost always best for you to have an attorney with you when you are being questioned. This is so that you have someone there who can ensure that your rights aren't being violated as the process moves on.

As you go through the criminal justice process, we can help you to learn about the options that you have. If you are at the beginning of the process and are being interrogated, we can step in to help you protect your rights.
