Talk to an Attorney Before You Talk to Anybody Else
You are probably aware of your right to remain silent and your right to an attorney when you are arrested. The importance of these rights to your defense cannot be overstated. Before you answer any questions asked by law enforcement, you should assert your right to a lawyer and politely but firmly refuse to answer any questions until you have spoken with your attorney. Even though you may have nothing to hide, the police are expertly trained to get you to talk and say something incriminating or contradictory that they can use against you. Once they have something, they can pressure you into making a move that is against your best interests.
As experienced criminal defense attorneys, we are here to prevent that from happening, so make sure you talk to us first. The sooner you call us, the sooner we can help. For instance, we may be able to get you released from jail while your trial is pending with a reduced bail amount or no bail required; we may be able to get evidence against you suppressed or have the charges reduced or dismissed. If a trial is necessary, you are in good hands with experienced litigators who have a track record of notable successes in the courtroom.
If you or a loved one has been arrested in Louisville on misdemeanor or felony state or federal charges, or for a juvenile offense, do not hesitate to call Mushlin & Vantrease, PLLC for a free consultation with knowledgeable, skilled and experienced Kentucky criminal defense attorneys.
