When should I hire a Criminal Defense attorney?

4 signs you need to hire a criminal defense attorney
You’ve been presented with a search warrant.
Search warrants are only served with a specific purpose- to uncover evidence of a specific crime. Before you let anyone in your home, ask to have your lawyer review the warrant and call us right away.
You are being detained or arrested for a criminal act.
It seems obvious, but if you’ve been arrested for a crime, you need to speak to a lawyer before anyone else. We’ll help you understand the charges, navigate the bail process, and ask the right questions to get an accurate story of the whole event.
You’ve witnessed a crime.
If you’ve been involved in a criminal act - even as a witness, it’s a good idea to have an attorney on your side to help you navigate investigator interviews, prepare you for testimony, and provide you guidance throughout the process. A criminal defense attorney will be the only person who has your best interests at heart.
You’re asking yourself, “Should I call a criminal lawyer?”
Truth is, if you are being called in for questioning or suspected of a crime, it’s rarely too early to call a criminal attorney. Even if you are innocent and you’re asked to come in for an “interview”, resist the temptation to agree to talking to the police without legal representation.

If you think you need a criminal defense attorney,
the answer is NOW.
