The short answer is NO! 

If you are the subject of a criminal investigation, being held for an interrogation, or placed under arrest, do not make any statements to the police. You should first consult with an experienced criminal defense lawyer who can help guide you through the criminal investigation process. Although you may think you can effectively present your side of the story, the police or subsequent prosecutors may be able to use what you say against you. Be careful not to volunteer any information or discuss the facts of the case with anyone other than your attorney.

Please contact us for a consultation to discuss your rights and how to approach your communications with law enforcement.
