Understanding Your Legal Rights
When arrested and charged with a serious crime, it is crucial that you know your rights. Even if you are only under investigation for a serious crime, protecting yourself is an urgent matter; when under investigation you can expect that you will be arrested within a short period of time. Answering questions by law enforcement is dangerous.
There are countless cases in which individuals severely damaged their own defense case by making statements to police. When the law specifically provides you with the "right to remain silent" it is critical that you do so. Even discussing your case with a friend, family member or any other person can result in severe damage to the upcoming defense of your case. In many cases these phone conversations are recorded and you may find yourself in even more legal difficulty if you do so. It is critical that you protect your rights and remain silent. A Long Beach criminal defense lawyer from our legal team will fight for your rights from the moment you are arrested.
