Why You Need A Lawyer

If the police arrest you for a theft-related offense, you may be asking yourself many questions. Should I say anything to the police? Do I need an attorney? Why can't I just explain my side of the story?

The most important thing to remember is that the police are not your friends. Following a criminal arrest, everything you say they will try to use against you, which is why it is best to exercise your right to stay silent until you have an attorney present. Quite simply, you typically cannot explain away the charges, no matter what the police tell you.

Also, while some theft crimes are misdemeanors, others are felonies ― meaning jail time and large fines are a real possibility. This reason alone is enough to justify hiring an attorney.
