Talk to an Attorney First
We strongly advise that you do not speak to law enforcement without speaking to us first. No matter how friendly the investigator may appear to be, anything you say can and will be used against you in court. It fact, it doesn't matter how innocent you are; you can still be convicted by a jury based on circumstantial evidence. Every year innocent prisoners are exonerated on new and improved DNA evidence, and some of them are even saved from the death penalty proving that innocent people can be locked behind bars. If we can find any shred of evidence to exonerate you, or any error made by law enforcement, we will bring such things to light if it can help your case.
