PRINCE WILLIAM COUNTY ATTORNEY FIGHTS FOR JUSTICE FOR THE ACCUSED
If the police pull you over in traffic or arrive at your door and charge you with a crime, do not answer any questions. Politely exercise your right to remain silent, and speak only to insist on your right to have your attorney present during any interrogation.
This cannot be stressed too strongly. Do not plead guilty to a criminal charge before you’ve consulted with a defense lawyer. Pleading guilty convicts you of the crime, establishes a criminal record, and may even send you to jail. The right attorney can offer you some better legal options.
Do not attempt to act as your own attorney, either. That puts your family, your freedom, and your future at even greater risk. Virginia law is complicated, and anything that you say could be twisted and used against you.
WHAT SHOULD YOU LOOK FOR WHEN YOU CHOOSE A DEFENSE LAWYER?
You want to avoid a conviction, a jail sentence, and a criminal record that could make it difficult to obtain a loan or find a job. You will need to rely on a lawyer who knows how to explain your side of the story – a lawyer experienced at having charges dismissed and winning acquittals.
