Defense in Criminal and Marriage Fraud Investigations
STERN Law has prevented many arrests simply because the person reached out for help before talking or meeting with law enforcement. If a detective or law enforcement officer makes contact with you or a loved one, it is ALWAYS best to consult with an experienced lawyer to determine whether communication is appropriate at the current stage. It will require a thoughtful and creative approach to turn this extremely intimidating moment into a plan of action intended to protect you from future criminal problems.
Remember, you have the Right to Remain Silent under the 5th Amendment of the Constitution. Many times, it is important to exercise that right. However, there are occasions where communicating with law enforcement may prevent an unnecessary arrest and criminal charges or help your case down the road. STERN Law will carefully assess the pending crisis and will shield you from taking a dangerous misstep that will likely complicate your case and ultimate success.
If you have been contacted by an officer of law enforcement, you have the option to talk with them without any protection or representation. However, the alternative (and better) option is to politely say you’d like a short period of time to consult with a lawyer, and call STERN Law immediately.
