Contact - Bytensky Prutschi Shikhman

When is the best time to contact a criminal law firm? You don’t need to wait until you are charged with a crime. Do not consent to any police interviews or questioning without first talking to a lawyer. If your employer is investigating you for suspected misconduct, talk to a lawyer. In short, as soon as you have an inkling that you may be in trouble with the law, you should enlist legal help.

While you may be tempted to think that you can get through the process without a lawyer, there is too much at stake. Criminal charges mean that your finances, your reputation, and even your freedom are on the line. In many cases, to the accusations alone can cost you your job or your marriage. Criminal defendants have legal rights and protections, but you may not be sure what they are or what you can do to protect them. The criminal justice system can be complex and confusing to the uninitiated, and you don’t need to face it alone.

Remember, many lawyers offer free initial consultations. In a short phone call, you can ask questions and get a better understanding of your legal situation, your rights and your options for moving forward. After a telephone consultation, the lawyer can usually give you an initial assessment of your case, what to expect, what your next steps may be, and whether he or she would be willing to represent you.

Another reason you need to act quickly when retaining a lawyer is that criminal cases evolve and change quickly as the investigation continues and evidence develops. If you get a lawyer onboard early and make sure he or she has all the facts, your lawyer will be better able to react and be proactive as your case evolves. Your lawyer needs time to properly prepare for investigations, witness interviews, bail hearings, motions, plea bargain negotiations, and of course, trial. Hiring a lawyer you can trust, and maintaining open lines of communication with him or her, can better your chances of clearing your name.
