"I WILL NOT TALK TO YOU, I WANT MY LAWYER."
That is the single most important phrase a potential criminal defendant can remember when facing a criminal charge. Criminal defense begins at the investigation stage. When a person is being investigated, they may be contacted by police officers, detectives, and other investigators. The investigators are seeking information to build a case against a person, generally before charges are even brought against a potential criminal defendant. It is critical to criminal defense that a person being investigated for a crime contact a lawyer before they say something or do something that could result in criminal prosecution.
