Contact us the moment you learn that you are or might be the target or subject of a criminal investigation. Do not respond to any law enforcement request to surrender or to debrief, even informally, without consultation. You don't have to give the authorities a statement, and it may be possible to avoid the book-in process of fingerprinting.
If you have already been arrested,Contact us immediately to learn procedural avenues available to you. The police will not inform you of your right to an Examining Trial or to testify before a Grand Jury in felony cases, either of which could result in a dismissal of charges against you.
The worst thing you can do is to delay seeking experienced criminal legal advice. Not confronting the problem head-on, whether you are guilty or innocent, compounds it nearly as much as lying about it would.
Either Frederick M. (Rick) Russell or Reed Prospere will individually handle your case in our firm--there are no "junior associates."
