In certain criminal matters, a witness may need the expertise of a lawyer to determine how to respond to a subpoena or a request to testify. Or, if you have been contacted by law enforcement or a prosecutor as a witness, and you are uncertain about how to respond, you can seek the advice or representation of a lawyer. In some instances, it may be in your best interest to invoke your Fifth Amendment privilege and refuse to testify about certain matters. It is important to consult an attorney about your options so you may make the best decision. And sometimes you may just want a lawyer to accompany you to an interview or to court, in case you have a question about what your rights and obligations may be. This is something we can help you with. Please call our office for a free consultation.
If you are the “victim” in a criminal case, sometimes you may feel that your voice is not being heard by the police or prosecution. Perhaps you did not want prosecution to take place, but charges were filed anyway. Or, you simply feel out of the loop as prosecution begins and the case moves forward. Some “victims” may simply want a lawyer well-versed in criminal law to be their “mouthpiece” about their desires in the case. If so, give us a call and we can discuss how we can help you.
