Many of our clients do not expect to be arrested or have a run in with the law. In times like this many people want to tell “their side of the story” in an attempt to get the police to understand and release them. It’s understandable, however ill advised. The police are not there to help you and in many instances will coax you into talking so you can set the record straight. Understand this, the police are not there to help you. The job of the police is to get a confession during your interview, even if that means they must lie to you. Additionally, they will often tell you that they cannot help you once you have contacted an attorney. It is not in your best interest to talk to police at any time without legal counsel.
