How do I know it’s time to contact a criminal law attorney?
There are many circumstances where it’s good to contact a criminal law attorney. Some of them are quite obvious: if you have been arrested or are being charged for a time, you should of course talk to an attorney. Also, if you are a suspect of a crime or someone you know is threatening to report you to the police. The latter is a reason to talk to an attorney whether or not you have actually committed a crime.
The truth is that it’s never too early to contact a criminal law attorney. Especially since Prime Lawyers and other law firms like it offer free case evaluations to clients, as you can see by clicking here.
It’s also a good idea to talk to an attorney if you are the key witness of a crime, or if the police has asked you to go to the station and answer some questions. Even if you intend to fully cooperate with the police, talking to an attorney can help make sure you are cooperating in a way that won’t land you in legal trouble.
