I am being investigated in MA for a crime and/or have been called by a police officer or investigator, what should I do?

This is a critical stage of your potential case, and you should call an attorney to discuss the facts and circumstances that have led to this point. It is never too soon to call a criminal defense lawyer, and it is very important to do so as soon as possible. Even innocent or offhand comments can adversely affect your case down the line.

Examples of these types of situations include calls from police officers to come in and give your side of a story, supervisors confronting you at work, and police showing up at your door. In these types of situations, it is important to remember that protecting yourself should be your main priority. Consulting a lawyer at the very first sign of accusation is the best way to do that.

A common concern is that getting a lawyer at this stage will look suspicious. Even if it does heighten suspicions, that is better than making statements that will hurt you further down the road. It is all too common that persons say things thinking that that statement is clever or strategic and it later comes back to bite them. A lawyer will be able to tell you whether it is safe to talk or whether it would be a wiser move to stay quiet and listen. A lot of people think that this is what Miranda warnings are for, but that is not always the case. Police are the only ones who have to concern themselves with Miranda warnings. Your supervisor or boss does not. Further, Miranda case law is complex and there are many intricacies.

Dear Sam, I can not thank you enough for your expertise in the handling of Chris's case as well as your sensitivity and caring attitude. toward him. I appreciate it from the bottom of my heart. He really expressed how good it felt to be able to talk to you! Sincerely and may God bless you.

I really appreciate your prompt and highly effective assistance on this matter. After six different OUI attorneys told me that there was no way to recall the warrant and dismiss the charges against me without me returning to Mass from California, you managed to accomplish what they said was impossible. Thanks again!
