Frequently Asked Questions
You may find the following information helpful.

Should I talk with the police investigating a crime without a lawyer present?
The answer is almost always, NO!! There is nothing you can say without the presence of a lawyer to help yourself that you can't say later. The police do not want to speak with you for any reason other than to make life better for them and worse for you. Once you are advised of your Miranda rights, you must affirmatively state that you wish to remain silent and to have the assistance of counsel. If you do not say this out loud, the police can continue to question you.

What should I tell the police if they request to speak with me about a criminal matter?
I refuse to consent to any search of my premises, the location of my arrest, my car or effects. I wish to exercise my right to remain silent under the Fifth and Sixth Amendments to remain silent and to have my attorney present during any questioning or lineup, at any time. If you ignore my exercise of these rights and attempt to procure a waiver, I wish to confer with my attorney prior to any conversation with law enforcement agents on the subject of the waiver.
