Hiring a lawyer may not be the first thing on your mind when the police are pulling you over or banging at your door, but it is in your best interest to pick a representative as soon as possible. Why do you need an attorney as early in the process as possible? There are a number of reasons.
Speak for you. If you have ever watched a TV show or movie with cops in it before, you probably know that you have the right to remain silent. Unfortunately, knowing this and acting on it when a police officer is pressuring you to respond are two different things. Besides, there are certain things that you are required to respond to and others that you can ignore. Do you know the specifics of these laws? Because a good criminal defense lawyer does, and they will be able to tell you when to answer and when it is better if they speak for you.
Build a case. Usually by the time police arrest you, they have already been building a case. Where major crimes are concerned, sometimes the prosecutor has been putting together a case against you already, too. To give yourself the best possible chance at receiving a positive outcome, you need to start working with a lawyer immediately so they can dive in and start creating a defense based on their knowledge of the situation and what evidence the prosecution has against you.
