It is in that moment that everything changes. Your living your day to day life, working, enjoying life, spending time with family and friends then you get that call or knock at the door. It is never a warming experience when you are contacted by police to answer questions. Sitting in bright room being drilled with questions by instigators you start to feel like your on an episode of 20/20. As the question come at you you begin to feel suspicion even though you know you have not committed the crime. At the end of the questioning you are free to go about your way. No charges pending. So no lawyer needed right? Wrong.
Truth is you should have not even spoken to any type of investigator without first consulting with a criminal defense lawyer first. Even if you believe you may be under investigation you should begin the process of speaking with a criminal defense attorney. By taking the chance that the investigation will just go away puts you in a very bad position if you do find your self in a place where you must defend yourself.
One important item to think of if you are being investigated and are looking to hire a top Boston criminal lawyer, is how well respected the lawyer is in the minds of investigators. Hiring a lawyer that has a poor reputation and that is known as a sleaze will only cause issues and lower your chances of convincing the police of your innocence. Make the smart move, take your time and learn about the lawyer you are about to hire. Read reviews online and ask questions to find out who would be a good fit.
If you think that you can get enough information from a “free consultation” with a lawyer where you believe you can go in and handle your situation, you are just increasing your chances of arrest. Most attorneys will provide a free consultation but it takes time to get to know your situation and learn the facts in order to truly help. Any help you get from a lawyer will come after the free consultation so you will be wasting time trying to obtain free advise and handling your scenario solo.
