We get calls all the time from individuals who are being investigated for various criminal charges throughout Utah. Sometimes they have already spoken to the police, have made admissions, and otherwise helped law enforcement make a case against them. Other times they haven’t said a word to the law enforcement and want an attorney to protect their rights immediately so the police will stop harassing them with phone calls.
If you are being investigated by law enforcement lawyer up! It’s seriously the smartest thing you can do. Law enforcement has a job to do, and that is to gather as much evidence in support of criminal charges against you as possible. That means you need protection the second you know you are being investigated.
Staving Off More Serious Charges
Let’s say you have committed a crime, you know there is plenty of evidence against you, and law enforcement probably already has that evidence. You still need legal representation. We have found that prosecutors, even if they have overwhelming evidence against a defendant, are still willing to work with the defendant’s attorney even before filing charges in hopes of reaching a resolution that everyone can live with and it makes a lot of sense in many cases. In such cases we have had a lot of success in convincing the prosecutor to file less serious charges than previously planned.
If you are being investigated for a crime, contact our Provo criminal defense law firm and let us know what’s going on. Depending on the facts of your case we may advise you to keep quiet and lie low. We may advise you to let us contact the district attorney on your behalf to see whether we can stave off the charges.
