Act Now to Protect Yourself

Do not speak with a police officer or investigator without first talking with a criminal defense attorney. If the police want to talk with you, they are in the process of collecting evidence that could be used against you.

We can advise you about how to respond in a way that protects you. If a loved one has been arrested, we can represent you in jail court to obtain the release of the accused or to get a lower bail if bail is available.
