Should I give a statement to the police if I may be suspected of a crime?
When asked, we generally advise our clients to NOT give a statement to police or investigators if suspected of a crime, without consulting with us about their rights first. If you have been arrested or believe you are suspected, you may need legal advice and we recommend that let us evaluate your situation.
Can you keep me out of jail?
Oftentimes, yes. Our goal is to always obtain the least restrictive outcome possible for every client charged with a crime. The first step in that process is attempting to get the charges dropped or get an acquittal. The second step, if the first step cannot be achieved, is to prevent jail or prison time for our clients. Every case and client is different and many factors can affect your individual case, including criminal history, the severity of the crime, the amount of evidence against you, and more. There are no guarantees in criminal defense, other than that we will fight our hardest for you. No lawyer should ever promise a client they will not spend any time in jail.
