Washington, D.C. Criminal Defense Lawyer

Don't talk to the enemy!

When the police ask you questions, the first words out of your mouth should be:

“I won't answer any questions without my lawyer.”

You should never talk to the police unless you have a lawyer with you who specializes in criminal defense. It is really that simple. The police will try to trick you into talking without a lawyer by saying things like:

    If you didn’t do it, you don’t need a lawyer.
    You are not a suspect.
    Only guilty people ask for a lawyer!
    This is your only chance to tell your side of the story!

These are lies the police frequently tell in hopes of getting you to give up your right to consult with a lawyer and to have that lawyer present with you during questioning.

If they can trick you into talking without a lawyer, they will take advantage of your limited understanding of the law. For example, did you know that the person who drives the car in a bank robbery can be found guilty of murder and armed robbery if a guard is shot. This is true even if the driver never entered the bank and had no idea his partner was armed.

You have a right to remain silent and to have a lawyer present during any questioning. Many people sitting in prison today would be free if they had exercised their rights!

Never talk to the police without a lawyer who specializes in criminal defense.
