Are You Under Investigation?

Are You Being Investigated by the Authorities?

What Can You Do to Protect Yourself?

Right now the police are not the best people to look to regarding help with your situation. Even if you are innocent, you run the risk of being ensnared into the web of the criminal justice system. You need the assistance of an expert, an experienced criminal lawyer that knows the ins and outs of the system. An incorrect move on your part can adversely affect your career, your life, and your loved ones.

What Is the Right Type of Attorney?

You need an attorney that is experienced in criminal law. Criminal law is a specialty area and you should only deal with an attorney that has sufficient experience in that area. A family law attorney, for example, would not normally be qualified to help you. Attorney Kenneth H. Lewis has over 42 years experience in handling criminal cases and can defend your rights and deal with any police or government investigation.

Being Under Investigation

What you do and say while you are under investigation is absolutely critical to the outcome of your case. All too often people start to do things that they think will help them when in fact it has devastating results. For example, people will tell other involved persons what to say. This can actually be an "obstruction of justice" that may result in an additional, separately punishable charge

Sometimes people will panic and begin to destroy records, thinking this will "help" them. Often this is also an obstruction of justice that can result in a much worse situation.

Of course, the single most common mistake people make is to talk to the authorities without counsel being present. People believe that they can "talk their way out" of the situation and that the police will surely believe what they say. Many an innocent person has talked themselves right behind bars because they did not understand the complexities of the law, or appeared to be lying because they were so nervous.

Know Your Rights

The Fifth Amendment to the United States Constitution guarantees that you cannot be made to testify against yourself. That includes talking to the police. You should only talk to the police if you have hired an experienced criminal attorney and have discussed your situation with him in complete candor.

Remember, all conversations with an attorney are protected by the attorney-client privilege, and cannot be revealed by the attorney. Once you have discussed the situation with your attorney, a decision can be made whether it is advantageous or not to talk to the police. If an interview is appropriate, you can prepare your side of the story in a fair, complete and appropriate manner with your lawyer at your side. That is the best chance you have for an advantageous outcome.
