Protect Your Rights: Do Not Talk To Law Enforcement

Law enforcement will frequently try to convince, or even coerce you into giving a statement with false promises of favorable treatment. The most important thing to remember if confronted by law enforcement is to say and do nothing. You are never required to give evidence or testimony against yourself. Whatever information the police want can always be given through your attorney at a later date, but only if it is beneficial to you.

Your case is important to you. When experience counts.
