What To Do When Facing A Criminal Charge
Our attorneys have substantial experience in representing persons charged with a crime or about to be charged with a crime. If you are not the victim of the crime, and the police have contacted you and want you to come to talk to them about something, warning lights should be flashing in your brain.
Even if you are entirely innocent of any wrongdoing, before you do anything, you should first contact an attorney from our office. We’re available 24 hours a day – an answering service handles our calls after hours, so you can contact us at any time.
At Holcomb & Hyde LLC, we have had great success through the years invoking our clients’ rights and preventing or avoiding criminal charges against clients who contacted us very early in the process. Do not wait until it is too late. You need to know your rights and how to protect yourself as you proceed.
Every case is different depending on its unique set of facts. If you fail to take this advice and go it alone, you are taking a great chance that could adversely affect your future and the rest of your life. So if the police are calling you or are at your doorstep, wanting you to come down to the station to be interviewed, and you are not under arrest, what are you going to do? The choice you make at that point is crucial.
