Why You Shouldn’t Wait to Hire a Criminal Defense Attorney in Denver

When you or someone you love is facing criminal charges, it’s normal to feel afraid and confused about what to do next. The fact is, it’s important to act fast if you are being investigated for a criminal offense, even if you are completely innocent of the charges brought against you.  The ramifications of losing a criminal case can dramatically affect the rest of your life, especially if you end up facing prison time and a felony record that goes along with it.

It’s important to speak with a criminal defense attorney in Denver as soon as possible if you want the to have the best chance of winning your case or being awarded reduced charges.  Acting fast can mean the difference between being able to go on with your life once your case has ended and being held back because you didn’t fight hard enough for your rights.

It’s not always easy to remember your rights when you are being questioned by police and are faced with an incredibly stressful situation.  Many people don’t realize that they shouldn’t speak to anyone until it’s too late – including the police, until they have hired an attorney who can represent them.  This holds true even for those who are completely innocent of all crimes that are being discussed, as even the smallest mistake in a statement at the police station can have a big impact in how your case proceeds.

Law enforcement professionals receive extensive training on how to get people to incriminate themselves and they have a great track record of pulling details out in interviews that can come back later to haunt the accused.  Luckily, you are legally allowed to politely refuse to answer any questions until your requested attorney has arrived.  Doing this right away can have a big impact on the outcome of your case.

If you are involved in a criminal case in any way, contact an attorney immediately.  It’s the best way to protect your freedom and your future.
