Talk to an Attorney First
If you are arrested or questioned by the police, you have the rights to refuse to answer questions and to speak to an attorney of your choosing. Exercising these rights immediately are the best things you can do to protect yourself when confronted by law enforcement. Many people think that if they cooperate with the police, they can explain the situation and remove themselves from the suspicion of the police. This is not the motive of the police in questioning you, however. Their goal is simply to get you to make incriminating or contradictory statements that they can use against you in court, or use to pressure you to make other statements or confess to a crime that you may not technically have committed.
Law enforcement officers are trained in interrogation tactics and are experts in getting you to say things they can use against you. Having a lawyer on your side who is equally well-trained and experienced will help ensure that you do not make any incriminating statements and help the police build their case against you. Attorney Ginger Poynter will protect your rights and advise you on your best options. We will present a strong defense in court using all available defenses, or negotiate a favorable sentencing option if such a move is deemed in your best interests.
