Michael J. Redenburg, Esq., is a criminal defense attorney with an office located in Downtown Manhattan New York City (NYC). Being arrested and charged with a crime is a frightening and daunting experience. Clients often report that the police officers arresting them will also give them advice on what to do and advise that the criminal charges which may be levied against them are not that serious. It's hard to know why such advice is given, but it may simply be to calm down the individual who is being arrested. Under no circumstances should an individual take legal advice from the police; but rather, they should contact a criminal defense attorney and refuse to answer questions posed by the authorities.
Rather than being apprehended by the police at the scene of the alleged crime, an individual may be contacted by police or detectives. This contact may be made by telephone, or alternatively, law enforcement may visit an individual's home. If the individual is not there, a detective may leave their business card with instructions to contact them. In such cases, it is important to immediately contact a criminal defense lawyer as speaking to detectives without representation is most often a bad idea. If law enforcement is planning on making an arrest, immediately exercising your right to counsel could very well be the best decision you ever make.
